CHROMOSOMOS are an instrumental band that goes beyond the boundaries of jazz, ethnic music, jungle or progressive rock. It was set up in 1999 by drummer Artur Dominik, who has been involved in projects in the alternative, rock and jazz scenes and who has cooperated, in a number of folk groups, with musicians of African, Jewish and Balkan origin.
The experience of long years of cooperation with musicians rooted in diverse cultures and with bands of various styles allows Chromosomos to create their own musical space with a simultaneous use of most interesting forms.
The Chromosomos project combines the musical variety of European and Middle East cultures with modern trends in contemporary instrumental club music and adds to it a characteristic and original jazz flavour.
Among the band's inspirations you can also trace the influence of contemporary electronic music that leaves its mark on the rhythm section which experiments with the drum'n'bass, jungle or house sphere juxtaposed by a trans-fashioned multi-part rhythmic division within an irregular meter.
The classic acoustic structure of the band contrasting with the use of digitally generated sounds as well as electronic processing of the sounds of acoustic instruments gives Chromosomos an unmatched tone.
