Over the past couple years, Cale Hawkins has taken several ventures into musical styles that are far different from those of his childhood releases (Chrome
and Random Acts of Confusion
). He explored hip-hop, breakbeats, and sampled music on Beat Down
and the Dorm Cuts Beat Tape
, indie alternative music as a sideman with Sid Sriram, and pop music as a sideman with Blu Cantrell. After discovering several fresh musical movements in college, he decided to start one of his own, moving towards the return of organic art
. Organic art is uncompromised by new technological developments and unpressured by financial obligations. It reflects the countless hours artists spend to perfect their craft, and conveys pure humanity. The Organic Art EP is a combination of all these ventures and experiences.
