I would like to stress how great collaborating with an artist like Quinn has been. It took us months to complete this project and I haven’t met a better, more open or positive person to collaborate with. We would critique each others work, pushing the project in a totally new and unexpected direction within a 5 minute conversation, but in such a smooth, cooperative and positive way that it was hard to remember that there had ever been an argument in the first place. I believe these experiences are reflected throughout the project musically & visually.
I discovered Software Wolf uploaded on a lonely Soundcloud profile with a couple of followers and two or three odd beat-driven songs. At first I was really confused. Who made these awesomely weird tunes? It took some effort, but after several messages and emails their creator was found. The album took some time to get compiled. Quinn and I tried our best to pay close attention to detail throughout the project. The idea of focusing the visual aspect of the release on Korea came a bit after we started the project. Quinn is located in Korea, for now, and both of us are really interested on the modern history of this troubled place. It made total sense to touch the subject somehow.
C24.chrome grade cassette. KELLY GREEN. Limited to 100 copies. Mp3 downloadcard included!
Experimental musician and guitarist, Kelly Churko – Canadian-born, Tokyo-based – is recognized as an integral part of the Tokyo underground scene, from jazz to improv to grindcore to noise. A computer creation, stoicism exudes over this continually developing, detailed and finely constructed, pulse-drone-centered work. A completely realized composition of a new type of drone core noise.
Darren Ho’s latest trip down the rabbit hole is a baroque maze lit with neon lights. Machine music for The Blue Danube. Piano, harpsichord and synthesis all set adrift, levitating into minimal jewels of sound.
Cassette from Vincent of “V” and The Pistol Cosmos. Blackest Rainbow previously released “V”s The Chanting Path a few years ago to some great reviews…
Five untitled pieces opening with a mediative guitar meandering, leading into more powerful heavy distorted pieces and right back through to a superb final track of layered instrumentation with beautiful distant vocal flowing in and out of the hypnotic sounds laid across the almost 16 minute finale. Full colour covers, pro-dubbed and limited to 100.
