Investigations in the tricky art of writing music

CLEEMANN is a Copenhagen | Chicago based one-man-project centered around singer, multi-instrumentalist and musical director Gunnar Cleemann.

With a passion for vintage instruments- and studio equipment Cleemann has created a unique solo project focused on the self-exploration of man. Playing with the ambiguities plaguing humanity itself, there is a song quite literally for any mood, with song titles reflecting the vast range of human emotion including “Ambitious”, “Righteous”, “Indifferent,” “Stupid,” and “Generous.”

His solo projects "45 Minutes Mostly About Caring” (2009) and “Different” (2012), are part of a planned trilogy dealing with universal issues in a very personal way. With the nakedness of his voice against the backdrop of his sensual songs, each song display human emotions we inevitably know, accept, or conquer throughout our lifetime, representing personality-aspects in a manner of deep humanity.

Quite unlike most contemporary radio jingles, the albums don't grab for your attention with brute force. Its arrangements are discreet, airy and sparse, establishing a brittle balance between delicate electronics and acoustic instruments. And vocals are left almost unprocessed and in all their natural fragility - as an audience it sometimes feels like you're eavesdropping on something extremely intimate.

CLEEMANN adapts his live delivery depending on the situation to create a one-of-a-kind performance that can’t be recreated. Rich in emotion and littered with contradiction, his shows are vital, appealing and never the same twice.
