Weaponized Episode 2: Aftermath

The dust-devils recede and the silence booms with the voices of those who have left. All is undone but those actions that can never be undone. You are left in the aftermath, the pieces falling are grains too small to pick up. The only way out is through.

THE OTHER SOUND: ISSUE #10

The Other Sound #10

The Other Sound #10

Welcome to “THE OTHER SOUND: ISSUE #10“. This is the second issue, and much the same as the 2012 issue (technically Issue 9) this issue is spread out here via blog version – or a print magazine re-deux of the early 1980′s magazine published by John Zewizz – “The Other Sound“. There were 8 issues printed before the magazine stopped being pressed. My goal is to have one of these out every 3 months. I can’t guarantee that I will make it, but I am giving it a shot.

THE OTHER SOUND: ISSUE #10” picks up where Issue 2012 left off. Inside you will find information about various Inner-X-Musick artists (Batcheeba), as well as Friends on Inner-X-Musick (klanggalerie/Walter Robotka, Rat King), and items that just interest me (Reviews, SexMagick). A Special thank you goes to John Zewizz, Madhav Ravindranath, Walter Robotka, Michael Ford, and Janne Berset for their help and support.

A little about “THE OTHER SOUND“… we are an organized group of people who do believe in musick. Special musick that is… we believe in keeping our musick prersonal. Not for the masses. Our musick is made to satisfy the doubt and demand for obscurity. We aim to fulfill the desires in ourselves and the desires of similar to us.

Our interests fall in the lines of obscurity and obliqueness, be it to look at… to listen to… or to engage in. Bound by a pledge to bind oneself and keep the betroth of cryptic interests alive inside oneself.

And so comes the name “THE OTHER SOUND“, the sound remaining…. remaining from the majority – (the larger number, more than half) – the masses. “THE OTHER SOUND” is our musick, our beliefs, our interests, OURS what belongs to US.

THE OTHER SOUND: ISSUE #10”  is available as a PDF HERE.

The entire “THE OTHER SOUND: ISSUE 2012” is available in a nice neat package as a PDF available HERE

Thank you,

Second Review – Aurum Nostrum non est Aurum vulgi :: Imperiumi.net

Levyarviot: Kkoagulaa – Aurum Nostrum non est Aurum vulgi :: Imperiumi.net.

Update with kind assistance from ANDRZ we have this more intelligible translation:

Kkoagulaa is founded by pretty much the same bunch of people who formed the very core of Manes, founded in 1993. Manes´s style was black metal at first, but later on they became more and more experimental with their music. The last Manes album, “How the World Came to an End” presented wide variety of styles from rap to electronica. Kkoagulaas first album “Aurum Nostrum non est Aurum Vulgi” dives even deeper to the same waters, although this album is more coherent and long-lasting than its predecessor.

Aurum Nostrum non est Aurum Vulgi” consists of one 54-minute long track, including variations from minimalistic Ambient to exploding electronic beats and even squeaks from Niklas Kvarforth of Shining fame. Eventhough Kkoagulaa stretches further away from pop/rock category than for instance the two other Norwegian oddballs, Ulver and In the Woods…, comparisons to those two (especially their subsequent catalogues) are unavoidable. Comparisons to Scott Walker´s experimental body of work, Devil Doll and Aphex Twin are not too farfetched either.

As a whole, the album is confusing and challenging without being pointless or artificial. Aurum Nostrum non est Aurum Vulgi is a unique case for a listener like me, who, aside from The Prodigy, doesn´t know much about electronic music. If the goodness or badness of music are the only criteria of categorizing the album, then Kkoagulaa belongs, without any hesitation, under the good music monicker.

First review of Aurum Nostrum

Artist: Kkoagulaa
Title: Aurum Nostrum Non Est Aurum Vulgi
Type: Album
Label: Aural Music

Having been writing reviews for a number of years, at times I find myself on virtual auto pilot when summing things up and feel I could do so with eyes shut and ears only half open. This I hasten is not an album that such principles can work with and although I profess to loving a challenge and getting stuck into something different from the norm Kkoagulaa have if anything come at me as a divine trial. This is so far from the norm that it virtually beggars belief and this is summed up in the pages of information that accompanied the download. The project is designed to “stretch out beyond genre conventions” and their mission is “to work in an expanded range of media and to even step outside of conventions of what constitutes avant-garde art and music” Alchemy is mentioned as the core behind both artist and work and the way they have turned their music into gold is a fascinating journey to undertake. As far as more background is concerned you can check out the detailed information at the band links below.

The inception of kkoagulaa continues and furthers the pushing of boundaries that characterized the black metal/avant-garde careers of its core members, kkoagulaa’s art is a kaleidoscopic vortex of dark and light, brilliant, psychedelic colour contrasting haunting, evocative monochrome

KKOAGULAA SIGNS WITH AURAL MUSIC

Aurum Nostrum Non Est Aurum Vulgi

kkoagulaa are excited to announce the signing of a deal with Aural Music. kkoagulaa, the multimedia, multidimensional project formed by ccernn after his departure from Manes, have wrapped up production on their debut full length. The album, titled Aurum Nostrum Non Est Aurum Vulgi, marks a new era of an exponential growth of creativity for the artists involved.

The inception of kkoagulaa continues and furthers the pushing of boundaries that characterized the black metal/avant-garde careers of its core members, kkoagulaa’s art is a kaleidoscopic vortex of dark and light, brilliant, psychedelic colour contrasting haunting, evocative monochrome. Much discussion and speculation surrounds the kkoagulaa podcasts, ebooks and art. The period of conception and gearing up yielded hours of material, but that material were but the rough sketches, the single and debut album comprising the first masterworks of kkoagulaa.

Aurum Nostrum Non Est Aurum Vulgi is set to be released in late February 2010 and will be preceded by a digital only EP in late january 2010.
