Hello Droogs,

Here's the rundown:

KSV 026 Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson & Tom Smith - Todesröcheln

Occasional Hanoverian neighbor Sigmarsson (from the titanic Stilluppsteypa) and yours unholy hang at KSV HQ and go glottal stop to thoracic implant in a sulfurous vocal battle royal!

KSV 028 Kenou Boyd Fromberg vs. Der Wolfsburger 32,002Hz Chor - The Silent Din (Abgeklärt Pts. 1-4)

Berlin-based composer Stefan Roigk's three-year-old son, Boyd, takes over KSV HQ for an afternoon of keyboard (and stuffed animal) debasement. Stellar doesn't cut it - this is post-galactic! Contrasted and abetted by the attenuated spokes and seat springs of the Wolfsburger 32,002Hz Chor, recorded during their May 2009 tour of Maschsee, Hannover.

01 Abgeklärt Parts 1-4 (60:37)

Composed and performed by Kenou Boyd Fromberg and Der Wolfsburger 32,002Hz Chor.

Edited, mixed and produced by TS, June 2009.

Edition of 15.


KSV 029
Silke Arp Bricht: 3. Juni (Rémi Groussin / Michel Henritzi & Junko Hiroshige)

A document of a fateful, fantastical evening. First, video artist Grossin thrummed his way into Silke lore, followed by a cartilaginous collab 'twixt Hijokaidan doyenne Hiroshige and guitarist Henritzi. Lives were either saved, spurned, or spared.

01 Rémi Groussin (12:03)
02 Michel Henritzi & Junko Hiroshige (27:01)
03 Critique (12:41)
04 Version (25:06)
