Formed in 1991 as a full-fledge gigging band, Krokmiten was shelved by Simlev in 1995 and reactivated in 2005 as a studio project exclusively. At the helm of the project in his Montreal studio, composer Simlev works with carefully selected session musicians from album to album. Krokmitën specializes in conceptual and experimental one-track albums built from the ground up like a movie score or a classical piece. Favoring a DIY approach and releasing music for free is part of Krokmitën's concept and ideology.

Krokmitën is a self-produced operation. Making quality music with a DIY approach and offering it for free is costly. If you want to help facilitate the process, now you can! All donations will be put to good use for making better music.
