Kinematik is a Lebanese instrumental rock band, whose music blends elements of 70’s psychedelia, progressive rock and post-rock. Kinematik composes instrumental pieces that feature dynamic contrast, strong melodic lines, a heavy use of distortion and effects, and reliance on electronics and synthesizers.
