Cam Butler is a Melbourne composer, guitarist and producer who has been a long-time creative force on the Australian live and recording scene. He has released ten solo instrumental albums which vary in style from guitar and synthetic soundscapes, to works with string ensembles both large and small. His orchestral compositional approach combines electric guitar with modern classical string sections to create a warm, atmospheric sound that ranges from thrilling drama to wistful sadness. Butler's unique musical vision is evocative, often being described as 'cinematic'. Greatly inspired by the environs and landscapes of Southern Australia, Butler views himself as an artist working from an Australian perspective, creating his own, singular version of contemporary, classical music.
Nominated for this year’s Australian Music Price, Strings Music is a retrospective album for which Cam Butler has selected eight of his most compelling compositions. These compositions have been taken from previous albums released between 2003 and 2012, and have been given a new life, with re-recordings, revised arrangements and re-mastering. Cam has composed one new piece, 'All Our Lives', especially for this album.
