Kinematik is an instrumental rock band from Lebanon, whose music blends elements of '70s psychedelia, progressive rock, and post-rock. Kinematik's rock sound is both diligent and intuitive, ranging from raucous improvisational psychedelic rock to steady and mechanical electronic grooves, with frequent post-rock climaxes. Immediate points of comparison include Explosions In The Sky, Can, Loop, and Tortoise. Kinematik composes instrumental pieces that feature dynamic contrast, strong melodic lines, a heavy use of distortion and effects, and some reliance on electronics and synthesizers. The band collaborated with renowned Lebanese producer Fadi Tabbal from Tunefork Studios, who produced this debut album, Ala'. Recorded on reel-to-reel tape, a recording process that has not occurred in Lebanon for the last decade. Edition of 300.
