about

Cam Butler's ninth solo album, 'Solar' is out now through Melbourne label, Kasumuen Records.

Cam Butler is a Melbourne-based composer, guitarist and producer who has been active for over twenty-five years in the Australian live and recording scene. Cam has developed a recognisable guitar and compositional sound that puts individuality and experimentation at its heart. He has released nine solo, instrumental albums which vary from guitar and synthetic soundscapes to works with string ensembles, both large and small. Cam has created a unique and genre-blending compositional approach; combining electric guitar and modern, classical string sections into a rich and sometimes otherworldly sound. This sound is primarily tonal, with a cinematic expression and sweeping melodies full of depth and emotion.

"My ninth album, 'Solar', is my latest and most up-to-date work in this vein. I chose the name 'Solar' as it is a grand title with many connotations - the sun, solar power, a positive life force. The album is built around one main musical theme that re-occurs throughout the record. This theme is developed and presented in various musical settings across the album's eight tracks. These tracks range in sound from lush, synthetic soundscapes to live pieces featuring a string quartet and also a fourteen-piece string orchestra, combined with electric guitar, bass and percussion. I aimed for all the pieces on 'Solar' to be exciting and enthralling in equal measure."
