**200 copies** Operating under his own name as well as MVK and Swerve, Matthijs Kouw (his second name is Vincent, hence the V) has released music since 2011. Solo work as well as collaborations, works for dance, film theater and installations. Most recently, he focuses on long-form drone pieces, often in collaboration with Radboud Mens. Obscurum per obscurius is a latin phrase that can be translated as "(explaining) the obscure by means of the more obscure". A well-chosen title for this collection of investigations of ‘obscure’ (or mysterious) drones. Drones that "were composed over an extended period of time through a laborious and intensive practice, in which moments of creative inspiration and creation, fraught with possibility, have ultimately become obscured in the final work presented here". Sometimes, a subtle rhythm seems to emerge from the depth, but this is an exception: most of the material presents otherwordly gazes into deep alien sounds, found by Matthijs Kouw trying to explain "the riddles of matter involved the projection of yet another mystery, namely the alchemist’s own gaze and approach, into what was to be explained". - Ambientblog.net
