Home » Jazz Musicians » Calaminus


Calaminus is a non-profit one-man-project from Stuttgart/Germany with the aim to produce groove-orientated instrumental music with the focus on genres like Funk, Fusion, (Acid/Nu)Jazz and Groove Pop, spiced with some ethnic influences of the worlds music sometimes.

It started 2003 after a decade as a Singer/Songwriter on guitars & vocals and some bandwork. Since then I mainly work with sequencing, plug-ins, keys, samples and loops. Nearly everything you hear is sequenced (MIDI), but it should sound band-like.

As Calaminus I also released 4 albums which can be downloaded for FREE as well:

Filet de Fonque (2010)

On the Trail (2012)

Grooveyard (2013)

To Another Place (2014)

These albums and all Calaminus music works are available for free under Creative Common Licence (CC-NC-ND), self-produced and strictly for non-commercial use!
