Kevin Drumm is a musician not only known as a one-man-orchestra exploring the boundaries of music, but also a star under the banner of inestimable Bocian Records label. This time we were granted with access to his kitchen. The LP is limited to 34 minutes, consisting of 2 pieces, originally recorded in 1996 yet fully remastered in 2012.
Side one piece slowly opens a kitchen door. Smooth, equilibrious and loopy sound fractions that surpass those requirements ambient music is bound to meet. First, a violin plays alongside a Carmen accordion, treated with surprising effects, of which the original sound is not to be easily discovered.
The otherside composition leads the listener from the kitchen straight to the slaughterhouse. Incomparably louder and uncompromising; too refined for an industrial-related noise piece, but again overweighing any experimental canon that might be followed.
Enjoy the kitchen experience.
