Short biography of Phlod-Nar, the:
Randolf Smeets, a.k.a. The Phlod-Nar is a composer/musician from The Netherlands, currently living in Belgium. Smeets boasts an impressive catalog of work featuring various orchestrations encompassing classical, jazz, electronic, film music and other experimental genres in between. He uses composition, improvisation, electronic, acoustic (piano, guitar, clarinet, percussion, voice), field recordings, and other found sounds in his adventurous works. For Smeets the lines of genre and style have begun to blur as his own distinctive compositional voice has taken shape. It is not uncommon now for Smeets to blend styles and sounds within a single composition as he seeks the perfect expression of his muse. His music is an inviting safe haven where listeners can enjoy experimental music, freely get wrapped up in it and not develop a migraine.
