Clarinet Factory

A Band from Prague (CZ) that absolutely defies categorization with clarinets, bass clarinet, sampling pads and vocal. A quartet of excellent clarinet players from the borders of contemporary and classical music, jazz, world music, electronic music, and multi-genre projects. Classically educated they master their instruments to present their own creations. The music understandable to various audiences.

“They are absolutely original, unique and great,” Gerald Seligman, the respected American journalist and producer

“Clarinet Factory are a Czech quartet of clarinets and bass clarinet that have been active for 25 years and are rather brilliant in creating dark and slightly threatening soundscapes. The music they make is atmospheric, moody and ultimately exhilarating. I’ve seen them live on a couple of occasions and come away impressed,” Simon Broughton (UK), Songlines, (10/2020)

“Music without borders that will jinx you like a voodoo priestess and whose hypnotic filter will not let go,” Jean-Claude Vantroyen (BE), Soir, (05/2017)

Clarinet Factory also composed film music, lately e.g. short film Middle Watch by director John Stevenson, as well as compositions for theatre and ballet performances (cooperation with VerTeDance –
