Label: Mikroton Recordings
Out of stock
Jason Kahn, Günter Müller and Norbert Möslang, all from Switzerland, comprise MKM trio, spontaneously founded in 2006 in Tokyo during their Japanese tour. They immediately achieved very fine results and collaborate since then. Their sound hovers between the at times harsh rhythmic noise of Norbert Möslang’s cracked everyday electronics and the rich sonorities of Günter Müller’s percussion-based samples and electronics. Jason Kahn’s work on analog synthesizer bridges these two worlds, adding high frequency interference and processed short wave radio input. Mikroton released numerous albums with their participation and “teplo_dom” is their sixth album on our label and third release after “Instants // Paris” released in 2016.
Discomfortingly solacing “teplo_dom” works like a treatment in the harshness of contemporary human life, sometimes soothing you with clusters of abstract timbres, sometimes poking you with distorted maelstrom of sound masses. If the tracks recorded in dom which means “home” in Russian, were mixed, “teplo”, in Russian meaning “warmth” or “cosiness”, remained without manipulation and you can hear how the trio builds a foggy psychoacoustic mass that lies between dynamic yet patiently treated drone music and industrial howl.
