ames Plotkin began his musical career as the guitarist for metal band Old with vocalist Alan Dubin. The two would cross paths again under the guise of Khanate. In the interim Plotkin would become involved in projects ranging from guitar bent soundscape and grind to free improvisation. His body of work spans format and label, recording for Avant, Hydra Head, Asphodel, Earache, Southern Lord and Archive among others. Whether writing, performing, or producing, his output has been invariably unique and extreme. Kurtlanmak-Damascus is no exception. Recorded live in New York and Buenos Aires respectively the tracks show a side of James Plotkin rarely seen. That of the solo artist. Plotkin utilizes two distinct setups for each performance and channels the sound of acoustic instrumentation through the hum of electronic sorcery. Released on Utech Records [022] as Kurtlanmak in the fall of 2005, the limited cdr was sold at dates on the Khanate 'It's Cold When Birds Fall From the Sky' tour. The music on this edition has been remastered and the packaging expanded. A second, unreleased recording from Argentina is added to complete the disk
