Sort Diamant

Krishve – Sort Diamant – Single

Two pieces composed for the 12 channel speaker system at The Black Diamond, The Royal Library, Copenhagen, 2013. The pieces were commissioned by The Danish Composers' Society.

1. Vandspejl
2. Surstof (Respiration IV)

These versions are stereo mixes of the 12 channel versions.

Listen to Sort Diamant on Bandcamp

Original program notes in Danish:

VANDSPEJL
Som besøgende i Den Sorte Diamant er man tæt på vandet, man føler nærmest, at man er om bord på et skib. Lyset reflekteres, brydes af det store vinduesparti ud mod havnen og lyser hele rummet op i bølger af knuste spejlkrystaller. Vandrejsen, associationen til skibet, er en spejling af vores rejse gennem tiden, kulturen, historien. Diamanten som en slags ark for vores fælles ophav. En utopi naturligvis. Det er ikke muligt at indfange og fastfryse fortiden, lige så lidt som fremtiden. Men det er en nødvendig utopi, et spejl for nutiden og pejlemærke for fremtiden. Vandspejl er et langsomt værk, som man med fordel kan bevæge sig rundt i. Hver enkelt stemme er forholdsvis statisk, men perspektivet, lytterens placering i rummet afslører forskellige samklange og blandingsforhold, hvis man tager sig tid til at gå ind i oplevelsen.

SURSTOF (RESPIRATION IV)
Åndedræt, som funktion og symbol. En af de grundlæggende funktioner i kroppens selvopholdelse. Uden åndedræt, intet fuldstændigt liv. Lyden af luft der trækkes ind og åndes ud, er, om muligt, endnu mere intim og sart skrøbelig end sangstemmen. På trods af ords og toners fravær i almindelig vejrtrækning, er det stadig muligt umiddelbart at genkende personlige karakteristika. Som et uhåndgribeligt fingeraftryk. I et rum som Den Sorte Diamants atrie, får åndedrættet endnu en dimension, når det forstørres via de 12 højtalere fordelt på tre etager. Som at befinde sig i en kæmpe lunge. Indånding. Udånding. Cyklisk bølgebevægelse finder form i kropsvarm luft.

NEW YORK NEW YORK

Just back from playing a few shows in New York. Played a string of nice and very different venues and met some friendly and inspiring people during my stay. Thank you. I'll be back. The tour was booked by clang. Label boss Lars From Mars played, too.

14/11 - Botanic Lab
16/11 - WKCR, Live Constructions, live in-studio (look) (listen)
17/11 - Silent Barn
18/11 - Industry City Distillery
19/11 - Artist talk and presentation of laptop orchestra piece, NYU

I were invited by Dafna Naphtali (Music Technology, Steinhardt, New York University), to do an artist talk and compose a new piece for her laptop orchestra. The orchestra consists of 10-12 students from Dafna's Electronic Music Performance class. I liked the idea of composing for this specific constellation, beacuse I usually don't use a laptop for playing live. I composed a piece called "Listen Carefully" for a minimum of 8 players with latops, sitting in a circle, backs turned towards each other, in a room without light. As the title suggests the piece is about listening.

LYT TIL KBH
Photo: Line Ørnes Søndergaard

Today saw the launch of LYT TIL KBH (LISTEN TO CPH). A collaboration between architect Jakob Oredsson and myself. The project has been in the making for a little over a year.

LYT TIL KBH is an art project which focuses on listening to the sounds of the city.

The project is made up of a series of performative actions which encourages people to listen to the sounds of Copenhagen. LYT TIL KBH is activated the moment that a participant is acting out the provided instructions, at an individually chosen time and place. The actions are constructed in a way that the participants reach a heightened auditory state and thereby experience the sounds of the city in a more focused way.

The actions are developed in a continuous process and are presented on different platforms in an undefined period of time. The project has no set end date, it exists through participants actively performing the actions. It avoids the boundaries between the different environments of the city and everyone has the opportunity to participate in the activation of the project. When you listen – the project exists.

The project is based on the idea of a site-specific installatory work that is not about adding sound to a specific environment. Instead LYT TIL KBH, through analog means, isolates and and focuses on existing sounds in the environments of the city, with the aim to raise awareness of the auditory traces of the city and our relationship to the sounds that surround us.

You can find out more about the project at www.lyttilkbh.dk, where it's also possible to listen to sounds from Copenhagen recorded with binaural recording equipment.

The Navidson Records

THE NAVIDSON RECORDS

A musical-performative installation on the novel House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski

International Platform for New Music Theater Bern / Munich

Thursday 18th September 2014, 7 PM / STADTTHEATER BERN at the Biennale Bern 2014

From the program notes (in German):

“Will Navidson, ein Pulitzer-Preis-Träger, zieht mit seiner Familie aufs Land, um in idyllischer Umgebung den Neuanfang seiner zerrütteten Beziehung filmisch zu dokumentieren. Die Geborgenheit wird gestört, denn in ihrem Haus erscheint eine bis dahin nicht vorhandene Tür, die in ein lichtloses Labyrinth führt. Navidson bildet einen Suchtrupp und verliert sich in der unermesslichen Weite des Raumes...

Ein soziales Experiment wird zum Dokumentarfilm, der Dokumentarfilm zu Text und der Text zu räumlich- typografischer „Lese-Partitur“. Diese wird bei uns zu einer musikalisch-performativen Installation. Im Umkehrschluss zum Buch, welches andere Medien apparieren lässt, versuchen wir ein Theater der medialen Subtraktion zu schaffen, ein Theater was sich in den Köpfen der Zuschauer als Abwesenheit erzeugt. Komponierte Impulse versuchen die Ränder dieser Leere / dieses „Nichts“ abzutasten.

Ein „Labyrinth-Läufer“, dessen Blick voraus und rückwärts begrenzt und fragmentiert ist, wird von Verwirrung heimgesucht; „Labyrinth-Betrachter“ hingegen, die die Anlage im Ganzen sehen, etwa als Skizze, sind geblendet von der Komplexität eines solchen Kunstwerks. Was man sieht (und hört), hängt davon ab, wo man steht.”

Phoenix

“Phoenix” opens today at Aarhus wooden boat harbor

“Phoenix” is an interactive performance/soundwalk. I've been helping out Icelandic composer and sound artist Thoranna Bjornsdottir finish the project.

Phoenix is experienced one person at a time, wearing headphones and guided around Aarhus wooden boat harbor by a GPS controlled soundscape and voiceover directions. You travel through a number of stations or installations, each created by one of the international artists involved in the performance. Concept by the team and artistic director and performer Mette Aakjær and director Sarah John.

You can experience Phoenix every day except Mondays until the 22nd of June.

Buy tickets: Bora Bora ticket sale

Phoenix is a co-production by Wunderland and Bora Bora, dance and visual theater

L U F T R U M - Sound installation

Vernissage: L U F T R U M, sound installation for RumOs

Today my new interactive sound installation L U F T R U M opens. The work is built for RumOs, a newly established office space for entrepreneurs and small businesses in Copenhagen.

The vernissage today is your possibility to experience the installation. Because RumOs is an office and not a public space, L U F T R U M isn't otherwise open for visitors.

L U F T R U M is 20 cassette decks playing 20 tape loops through 41 speakers. The speakers are mounted on a steel structure on the wall. Each tape loop is approximately 6 seconds long. On the loops are exhalations recorded by people at RumOs. They are invited to record new exhalations on top of the old ones as they see fit. The cassette decks can be turned on and off, the individual volume levels can be adjusted and the whole installation can be turned on or off by a master switch on the wall. Because of the quirks and small defects of each cassette deck the loops sound more or less distorted and warped. The loops never play in sync due to the unstable playing speeds of the decks and therefore L U F T R U M never sounds the same twice. L U F T R U M is an organically evolving representation of the people working at RumOs.

Come to RumOs, Glentevej 70A, 2400 Copenhagen NV at 4 PM.
There'll be refreshments and snacks.

Laughter In The Dark

Sound design for “Laughter In the Dark” by HOTEL PRO FORMA

Tonight Hotel Pro Forma's new production “Laughter in the Dark” premieres at Republique in Copenhagen. I've created the sound design and worked closely with Nils Frahm who has composed the music.

The play is an adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov's novel from 1936 about Albinus, a middle-aged man, who falls in love with a very young woman and leaves his wife and daughter to engage in a destructive and parasitic relationship during which Albinus loses his sight in a car crash. The plot involves another man who is the young woman's real love interest. Nabokov later revisited this theme in his most famous novel “Lolita”.

One of the interesting and challenging aspects for me is working with a combination of live binaural sound in headphones and sound via speakers. During the first section of the play the audience is wearing headphones and the stage and audience is covered in complete darkness. In the second section it is ordinary theatre light and sound via speakers, the audience is not wearing headphones. In the third section the audience is told to put on headphones again but this time the stage is lit. The fourth and final section is a concert by Nils Frahm playing on stage in the scenography. Frahm is also playing music during the first three sections of the play, providing a live soundtrack. I did the sound design and cue and mix the performances including live binaural sound mixing.

“Laughter in the Dark” is produced by Hotel Pro Forma and playing at Republique in Copenhagen May 3rd to 24th.

1 + 1 = 3 [30 SECONDS]

Tomorrow I'll be showing my film “1 + 1 = 30 [30 SECONDS] – A Film About An Experiment” as part of a large event at Godsbanen, Aarhus Denmark. Find out more about that event here: Godsbanen Insightout (only in Danish). I'll be in the room called “Remisen”.

In addition to showing the film I'll also carry out a number of 30 second impro-sessions with invited guests. Approximately 12. They follow the same pattern as the ones shown in the film, and are going to be edited into the film for the next version. I'll also talk a bit about the experiment I've been carrying out since 2010, which involves ideas about collaboration, improvisation and what impact those situations have on our perception of time.

Location: Godsbanen, Skovgaardsgade 3-5, 8000 Aarhus C
Time: 4 pm-6 pm
Admission: Free

Here's a preview of “1 + 1 = 30 [30 SECONDS]”:

Krishve Apollo EP

Today clang release my new EP “Apollo”. This is my first release on www.clang.cl. Needless to say I'm really happy about that.

The music took a lot of hard work and cost me more than a few sleepless nights. I came close to giving up. But as it often happens, when all hope is lost, something appears out of the blue, the smallest thing, which changes your perspective and points you in the right direction. This time it was a good friend and the wings of a butterfly. Thank you. After that spark of inspiration everything fell into place during a few days of frenzied work.

Thank you to Stacy DeVille for yet another fine piece of art for cover and booklet: Cover / Booklet

Apollo is for sale at iTunes (Apollo at i Tunes), and a number of other online music retailers. I don't have the complete list right now, but I'll post more links to buying options, as soon as I know about them.

From the press release:

“Silence is not only golden, but non-existent. This is my frustration. Seeking release I tried to silence myself in more ways than one. During my voluntary seclusion from the world I had a visitation. A winged oracle. Apollo, or as it is known in Latin, Parnassius Apollo A butterfly. The mountain towering above Delphi gave its name to the scaly-winged insect. Pythia, the priestesses at the temple, inhaling the sweet vapors, hallucinogenic gasses rising from the depths of the earth, foretelling the fate of the people who came to seek guidance. Glossolalia, obscure utterances delivered in an intoxicated frenzy. I close the door behind me, but the ghost walks beside me. Apollo is music made with delicate sounds. Rubbing of wine glasses, wind blowing in an old chimney, the flutter of the wings of a butterfly. An ancient song of death and lost love. Despite my best intentions, this is not silence”.

New music for The Black Diamond II

Last week my second piece for The Black Diamond played for the first time.

The piece is called “Surstof (Respiration IV)” and is 3.58 minutes long. It is part of my exploration of breathing as symbol and function. The sound of air being drawn in and blown out are in some ways even more fragile and intimately personal than the singing voice. Like an intangible fingerprint. But more than anything “Surstof” represents a snapshot of my emotional state at the moment.

“Surstof (Respiration IV)” can be heard Monday to Saturday at 1 pm on these dates. Remember:

July 8-13
August 19-24
September 30-October 5
December 23-28

New music for The Black Diamond

I, and five other composers, have provided new music for The Black Diamond in Copenhagen. The works were comissioned by The Danish Composers' Society on the occasion of its 100th birthday in 2013. The Black Diamond is part of The Royal Library in Copenhagen and houses an exhibition area and a concert hall.

My first contribution “Vandspejl” can be heard Monday to Saturday at 1 pm on these dates:

January 21-26
March 4-9
April 15-20
May 27-June 1

It's a public access area so it's free. Go and have a listen, it lasts approximately 3 minutes.

The music is played in The Black Diamond atrium, also known as “Skåret”, through a 12-channel speaker system distributed across the three floors. In this way the music is “placed” around the room. I have chosen to make a piece that moves ... very ... little ...

The five other composers are Jonas R. Kierkegaard, Ane Østergaard, Morten Riis, Søs Gunver Ryberg and Jonas Olesen. All very nice people. It's a fun project to be involved with and I've started work on the second piece, which will play in the latter half of 2013.

AND! On Thursday 24th of January you're invited to vernissage. 9 pm. Free admittance.
The six pieces are played. Louder than is possible during the day. It's a library, remember? Speeches by important people and a short artist talk with Søs and I. Did I mention free drinks?
It would be so nice if you came and said hello.

KRiSHVE - SPiRAL artwork

Today, at precisely 1:13 pm (in Danish 13.13), phloq released my new five track EP “SPiRAL”:

  1. Grundstof 110
  2. Hypnotisk
  3. Kammer
  4. Uklar
  5. Ektoplasma

At the moment it's available as a download from phloq's bandcamp shop and from phloq's releases page. Soon it'll be available on CD as a very limited edition.

Needless to say I'm pretty excited about this, as I'm very happy with the “SPiRAL” EP. I hope you will enjoy it, too!

Artwork is by Jonas Mousten Eriksen. I think he did a really fine job.

From the press release:

“Almost nothing in this universe can be described with a completely straight line. As you move closer you'll see small deviations. It turns out the straight line is really more like a waveform, but because you saw it from far away, you perceived it as a line.

Not only sound, but many things in our world, are moving up and down in perpetual wavelike motion. At times these waves move in circles, looking almost like spirals. A spinning spiral can act as a powerful trance inducing tool, as can slow moving sound waves if the listener is prepared to let herself go.

KRiSHVE created SPiRAL with a fairly limited reserve of sound generators. The focus is on the music not the machinery. A feeling of sensing something vague and slightly foreboding, something you can't quite put your finger on. The sound has a physical quality to it as well as being a rewarding visit to the cerebral cinema. Two tracks are raw field recordings - happy accidents, almost perfectly formed from birth. One is recorded inside a cavernous steel chamber in a disused brewery, the other was captured in a dilapidated building during a violent rain storm. Always keeping the mics open and the tape running.”

LAK - festival for nordic sound art

Building and playing on the “Rainforest 2012” sound installation with Derek Holzer, and four other sound artists at “LAK - festival of nordic sound art”: www.lakfestival.dk.

The festival opens today at 5 pm and we're playing the installation at 6 pm.

See the complete program here: LAK - festival programme.

The address: Prags Boulevard 43, 2300 København S.

Derek Holzer about the project:
“Rainforest 2012 is a contemporary re-interpretation of David Tudor’s series of compositions from the 1970′s entitled Rainforest. It uses various types of sonic transducers to play live sounds through a selection of resonant, found-metal objects in the performance space. A matrix mixer allows the sound from any of the performers to be sent to any of the objects, creating an immersive, tactile and spatial sonic experience.”

Hotel Pro Forma - Shadows and Shapes

Been pretty busy, so didn't manage to post anything about the latest Hotel Pro Forma project I were involved with before it premiered.

It is called “Shadows and Shapes” and it's a staging and reworking of Debussy's last three sonatas, interspersed with readings of Proust's “Remembrance of Things Past” by actors Ellen Hillingsø and Toke Bjarke. Shadow, light, colour and scent transform the three sonatas into an experience for all the senses. The piece played for two nights during the Athelas New Music Festival 2012 in Copenhagen. It premiered on May 19th and played again on May 24th.

For this project I worked together with Kirsten Dehlholm (Hotel Pro Forma) and Morten Svenstrup (Under Byen) on creating a dramaturgy for the three Debussy sonatas, by going through the scores and enhancing what we liked and cutting out what we didn't find interesting. A daunting process that at times felt like tightrope walking. The aim was to try and create a listening experience that would open the works up to new listeners and at the same time bring some pleasant surprises to the ears of Debussy aficionados.

I also did the sound engineering for the performances which included quite a bit of processing of the musicians' instruments, so that some of the music was transformed sonically in a fairly radical way.

From the program notes:

The music of Debussy and the words of Proust are united when Atelier Hotel Pro Forma and Kirsten Dehlholm stage a concert of light and shadow, colours, scent and textural sensibility. Everything is in motion.

“The music has started as the audience enters but stops suddenly as if it were meant to continue. The music is by Claude Debussy – the three last sonatas that Debussy composed before his death. Six musicians and six shadow musicians appear. The musicians and their instruments are duplicated on the stage. The sound moves from the stage out into the room and back again while the light changes in a floating way, making objects and shapes move like coloured shadows. The two groups of musicians are by turns clearly visible and dark silhouettes, playing their instruments by turns and imperceptibly taking over each others' musical parts.” These are the words of Kirsten Dehlholm, founder and leader of Hotel Pro Forma. Together with Atelier Hotel Pro Forma, she has created this performance.

The starting point is the music of Debussy – three intense chamber works written in the last years of his life: The violin sonata, the cello sonata and the sonata for flute, viola and harp – the only ones he completed in a proposed cycle of six sonatas. When the music stops, an actor and a boy read excerpts from Remembrance of Things Past – the great series of novels about the nature of memory by Debussy's contemporary, Marcel Proust..

Dehlholm continues: ”Everything seems to be floating and light, poetic and changeable, etheric and enigmatic. Debussy seemed enigmatic to other people. He wanted to give audiences a sensual experience – and in the delicate sensations of his music, he caught the spirit of his times. Shadows and Shapes mirrors this ambition of creating a musical and poetic prose without rhythm or rhyme, so strong and flexible that it follows the lyric movements of the soul and the wave-like leaps of the mind. Debussy and Proust meet in this spiritual space of text, sounds and colours, in the varied patterns of the performance, in an artistic interlacing of forms and figures.”

Lyd+Litteratur 2012

Krishve is proud to be part of the line-up for this years “Lyd+Litteratur”, a festival dedicated to sound, litterature and the things that happen when you mix the two. The festival is running from 17th to 28th of April and is spread over venues in Aarhus and Copenhagen. Check the festival website for more information: www.lydpluslitteratur.dk

Krishve is presenting the film “1 + 1 = 3 [30 sekunder]” as a video installation at Godsbanen in Aarhus. The installation is running for the whole of the festival.

The film “1 + 1 = 3 [30 sekunder]” is part of an experiment that has been in effect since 2010. In short it contains a series of improvised collaborations with several different artists. Each collaboration lasts exactly 30 seconds and is a complete one take experience. No previous planning or rehearsal. The sessions are filmed and recorded there and then, with almost no editing after the event. The project is still in progress which means that the version shown at “Lyd+Litteratur” in no way is a finished or final version. It is ever evolving.

The experiment takes its starting point from thoughts about time and perception. Forgetting time. Leaving room for the imagination. Rubbing two people against each other and creating a third energy. Unforseen gifts presented by chance. Bending time. 30 seconds of being.

Hotel Pro Forma - Made By Elephants

“Made by Elephants” - a sculptural sound installation by Atelier Hotel Pro Forma - sound by Krishve

29-31 March 2012
1 pm to 6 pm daily

From the program notes:

“The elephants are coming to Carlsberg’s old brewhouse, where they can be tracked and felt. They went down to the floors below, to stay for awhile. Above in the Brewhouse we can feel and hear their presence via sounds from below. We sense their strength, weight, dignity, their force of nature.

The elephant is a gentle, intelligent, industrious animal that is often used as a symbol in many connections, and also by Carlsberg itself, which is manifested in their famous Elephant-gate, which is located just outside the entrance to the Brewhouse. With the installation, Atelier Hotel Pro Forma wishes to create a strong contrast to the Brewhouse’s splendid architecture by staging one of nature’s largest powerhouses: The Elephant.

Made by Elephants is part of the international meeting for the performing arts IETM, which takes place in Copenhagen from 28 - 31 March 2012.”

ForMMorF

I have created music and sound design for a short film called “ForMMorF” by choreographer/dancer Iben Engberg and costume designer Jeppe Worning. They describe the film as a visual experiment involving a mirror. Body and costume are joined in a playful kaleidoscopic interaction with the viewer's imagination.

For the music I used various bells recorded in different acoustic environments around and outside my studio at night when the surrounding area was deserted. Additionally I recorded an assortment of textiles (ie. the stroking and crumpling of such materials), a coffee mug half filled with water and some synths and electronic boxes.

“ForMMorF” was recently screened at a sneak preview, and is to be shown again on a water screen in Århus river several times during “Århus festuge”. When I know the exact times I'll post them here.

New year – New studio – New releases – “1 + 1 = 3 [30 seconds]”

Factory near the harbour

It's been a while since I posted any updates. First of all; happy new year to everyone.

I've been busy moving into a new studio near the waterfront here in Århus. Moving my gear and setting everything up in the new place has taken a long time. The area can best be described as dilapidated with lots of peculiar charm, partly because it's near the harbour. Just take a look at the pictures. The slaugtherhouse next door certainly provides a wealth of interesting smells and sounds. But I'm quite happy with the place and the ambience. It suits me fine.

In the corridor

I'm working on two new releases: The next instalment in the Ritual series is nearing its completion. In addition a new release on vinyl is on the drawingboard. It's also going to be part of the Ritual series.

The online presentation of the “1 + 1 = 3 [30 seconds]” project is coming together slowly. I'd like to make all the sessions available online, but I have to finish the new website first. Yes, there's that too ... the new website ... so much to do and so little time to do it in. But I'm not complaining. It's all good.

DIEM ELEKTRO

“1 + 1 = 3 [30 seconds]” – Screening at Musikhuset Aarhus – September 29

Lately I've been performing an experiment and creating a film documenting the process. The experiment is still in progress and consequently the film is constantly evolving. The edit I'm showing on Wednesday is version 5. This is the second public screening. The first one took place at Splab as part of the penultimate bang og/eller event.

Yes, I know I'm being slightly secretive but I'll explain a bit more about the experiment before the screening and soon there is going to be a section on this site dedicated to the experiment. So stay tuned …

Also on the night these lovely people are going to get up and play some music for you:

Ritual V-VII

Ritual V-VII ready for release

I'm pleased to announce that the second instalment in the Ritual series is completed and has been sent off to be distributed digitally. Click above image to view the cover art. It will probably take a few weeks for Ritual V-VII to filter through to iTunes et al. Of course I'll let you know when it's available.

Obviusly the tracks are a bit long, so take your time with this. Again the main theme is “being slow”. Compared to Ritual I-IV some of these tracks move further into noise terrain. They are a bit more beat oriented in places, as well. It is certainly not “play in the background at a party”-music. It's probably better suited for listening to while sitting in your favourite armchair or lying on the bed ready to go on a deep journey.

As ususal all tracks are recorded live to a 2-track digital recorder. No additional editing apart from a bit of mastering to keep the levels in check.

Gear related information for the sad trainspotters out there of which I'm one myself. Instruments and assorted noise boxes used by Krishve on Ritual V-VII:

  • Yamaha CS-10
  • Violin Zither
  • Screwdriver
  • E-Bow
  • Homemade contact microphones
  • No name signal generator
  • Obsolete equipment for performing hearing tests
  • Chimera Synthesis bC8
  • Jomox T-Resonator
  • Sherman Filterbank II
  • Gakken Theremin

Krishve gets diffused: Thursday February 4th

Krishve takes part in a diffusion concert this Thursday. That is tomorrow.
What's diffusion I hear you ask? That's pre-recorded music played back using a multi speaker system, in this case 23 speakers. This idea came about as an consequence of the emergence of musique concrete, and discussions about how to present this new kind of music in a live setting. The term acousmatic sound was created. In short it refers to the experience of hearing sounds without being able to see the origininal sound sources. Read Wikipedias article about acousmatic sound.

Listen to sounds whizzing about from loudspeaker to loudspeaker:
Place: The Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus, in the Synphonic Hall
Time: 8 pm
Price: FREE!

A few news bytes:

Ritual V-VII: The next part in the Ritual Series is almost ready for release.

This second installment includes Ritual V, played to a live audience at The Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus. The graphics are not quite finished yet, but expect Ritual V-VII to be available for download very soon. It will be available at the same online music shops as Ritual I-IV. That is iTunes, TDC Musik, shop2download (TP-Musik), all in all about 160 other online music shops internationally.

30 Seconds of Being Together (working title): A new project I'm working on at the moment.

Still a bit secret. Actually very secret! Otherwise it will not work. But I can divulge a few details... These elements are important parts of the puzzle: Strict time limits, the effect of several pairings of minds, random occurrences and one of the works of Sir Thomas Browne. Oh, what a give away! More on this later…

These are a few of the upcoming events in the world of Krishve in 2010. 2010 vs. 2001? I always preferred 2001…

Premiere of Caution, June 9th: Music by Kati Linek & Krishve

Caution - Archauz

Caution plays at Archauz (Århus, Denmark) on June the 9th and 10th. The production is shown again at Skanderborg Kulturhus in September.

The performance is divided into two parts. Kati Linek and Krishve collaborated on composing music for the part choreographed by Louise Friis. The music was created using a minimum of audio material.

I mainly used recordings of cello, toy piano and radio static as the basic building blocks, mutating these well known sounds into something that the listener might not be able to identify, at least not all of the time. The point of this being to create a kind of ambivalence about what exactly it is that the audience is listening to. This underlines the themes of Caution. What is “real" and what is “unreal"? Who appears to be sane and who does not and why?

About the performance
"Caution is the third performance by Archauz U-Kompagniet within just 1½ year.
A performance of tense energy, the young dancers desire of movement and a lot of physical challenge. Caution is a double-bill by dancer, choreographer and artistic director, Louise Friis (DK) and dancer and choreographer Lodie Kardouss (FR)." (From Archauz' website).

The show went really well. Ritual VI turned out to be a bit more action packed than the previous parts of the series. Unfortunately I didn't get to record the show because of a slight mishap with my recorder. I might decide to create an alternative Ritual VI event, so that I can maintain the chronology for a later release of the Rituals. Some people might call that cheating, but I don't care as long as it works... ;)

Berlin Biennial – Mort Aux Vaches Ekstra Extra

Well, it was quite an interesting time in Berlin. We did the Berlin Biennial thing, as you can see on this picture of the venerable Gaeoudjiparl Van Den Dobbelsteen presenting one of the new Mort Aux Vaches Ekstra Extra works to the astounded public. People were happy and much fun was had by all.

More on this later, as I'll be uploading the entire Krishve Mort Aux Vaches Ekstra Extra on this site only!
This is an exclusive and unique work – a collaboration between Krishve, Goodiepal and unnamed beings (some of them human) from around the world.
Only 1 (that is one/uno/une/eins/en) copy exists in the known Universe! I promise this is going to be interesting. Below you see Krishve at DIEM presenting the work to Goodiepal and the public, after returning from Berlin.

We also had time to meet up with the very nice and accomplished Lupo at Dubplates & Mastering, to oversee the mastering and cutting of a forthcoming 12" by Lights People. Check these people out.
The mix was done live on the spot by Goodiepal, a woman from the Faroe Islands (I can't remember her name) and Guido of Gamers in Exile. This was used as master.

We visited Geert-Jan Hobjin at his newly built house to have a talk about the history of Staaplaat. He showed us a lot of the extremely beautiful cover art he's produced over the years. You have probably seen some of it. He's also doing a lot of installation and sound work that's really fascinating. I looked forward to meeting him as I have a great deal of respect for his work.

Last but not least we met Timeblind to talk about his music and SuperCollider. He is a dedicated user of the software and part of the developer community.

I've got loads of audio and video from this trip but unfortunately not the time to go through it. Maybe later. Probably never.

DIEM, Goodiepal and Krishve at the 5th Berlin Biennial for contemporary art

On the 16th of April 2008 Goodiepal will relocate his students from the Danish Royal Academy of Music in Århus to Berlin for what appears to be the last lecture in a series of computer and electronic music composition teachings for DIEM, Dansk Institut for Elektronisk Musik. Goodiepal, who has been leading the course, recently announced that unless changes were made to the way the school organizes staff, he would have to quit his job after the summer.

A link to this event at the Berlin biennial website.

This international event will also mark the premiere of a Goodiepal educational book called Mort Aux Vaches Ekstra Extra, which allows everyone participating to become the co-composer of Goodiepal’s new magnum work Mort Aux Vaches Ekstra.

The first graphical scores are already completed and we would like to bring your attention to a script by young Danish talent Martha Hviid, who the Goodiepal is very pleased to have as a co-composer on Mort Aux Vaches Ekstra.
Take a look at Martha Hviid’s composition.

Recently I mastered a 5 song CD for the band honning & mudder.
Actually it's quite good and worth checking out. In short, it's piano dressed up as guitar meets bass but falls in love with drums, while singer is busy singing. Later they have a meeting with PC to find out what's what. And I'm not saying this just because it's the troubled brainchild of a friend of mine, Mikkel Almholt. You can listen to it at honning & mudder (myspace) or you can get one from the band. I suggest getting one because that way you avoid the horrible MySpace mp3 *cough* "quality".

Last week I attended a ... well, I don't quite know what it was, but a woman by the name of Roberta Settels came by DIEM to talk about a record she put out in 1985 called "Isolation". Actually it's the only record she has put out. Now it has been re-released by Jonas Olesens on his BIN label.
Roberta Settels was born in New York but lives in Sweden and France. According to one source she "is a composer and industrial designer, who composes electronic music for spiritual survival. She has been working with computer generated and processed music as well as concrete music at the EMS studio in Stockholm and IRCAM in Paris. Settels has also composed for TV-film, radio and concerts." She has worked with Xenakis and Boulez at IRCAM in Paris. Well, enough with the name-dropping. The bottomline - it's a great record. If you like minimal electroacoustic music buy this record. No. Buy two.

Every time I think about this it makes me angry ... Ultralyd, my favourite program on the radio, has been killed off. To me the only truly creative, and the most inspiring, program on the airwaves. Luckily the online archive of Ultralyd is stille available. Do yourself the favour of listening to a few of these broadcasts.
Ultralyd is, sorry, was ... a program on Danish Radios P1. Ultralyd used to be called Lydmuren and before that Lydpotten. Throughout it's existence it has been characterized by a playful attitude towards creating immersing soundscapes and thought-provoking radio. The subject matter was a kaleidoscope of human reality. And now, help me build a bomb we can place under the Danish Ministry of Culture. These days it's filed under “football”.

Tomorrow (April 25) Introvert Distortion release the second installment in the series of Nordic dark-ambient compilations "We Who With Music Beguile Your Pilgrimage To The Unknown". The first one was released in collaboration with TLHOTRA. Once again I'm happy to say that Krishve is in on the action with "Scala Vestibuli", the third track off of the "Cochlea EP". More details tomorrow if the release is out.

If you have the chance go and see the film Scott Walker: 30th Century Man, a documentary about – yes, you guessed it – Scott Walker. Anyone not familiar with the man and his strange and beautiful music ought to treat themselves to a fascinating look at one of the "weirdest men in pop", as one reviewer puts it. Come on, you know you want to.

I have uploaded the track "Scala Media (Letter From N. Megson)" from the Cochlea EP to the music section. Go and check it out. The track is made out of paper sounds. I recorded myself stroking, caressing, crumbling and tearing three pieces of paper. Afterwards the recordings were cut up, arranged and processed. I'm quite pleased with the result myself :)

Cochlea EP
Swedish netlabel FEED has released three new tracks by Krishve. The release is called Cochlea and is available from FEED for a short time only. You can download Cochlea during this period of time: March 1st -> March 8th 2007.
The download is free.

The three new tracks are:

  1. Scala Media (Letter From N. Megson)
  2. Scala Tympani
  3. Scala Vestibuli
Go to the release on FEED: Cochlea EP

FEED is worth watching as the label has an impressive ability to serve up beautiful and weird(!) music. The idea is to put up download only releases for a short time to create a feel similar to limited edition releases.

This is an interesting combination of psychoacoustics and extreme noise terror (no relation to the UK band, as far as I know): The Mosquito Kid Deterrent Device. I want one for Christmas ...

The computer game music is coming along nicely, thank you very much for asking. If possible I'll stick some of it in the music section later on. It depends on copyright/ownership/not announcing part of the product too early and all that lawyer speak.

New track Spermaceti Flop has been uploaded to the music section. I'm quite happy about the way it turned out. It took quite a lot of sitting up, lying down and flailing about.

What’s the matter with your face. Don’t look so sad.

Anyway, now you are here you might as well listen to some noisecoreelectrohardcorepopglamgrinddancehallnewagerock’n’rollsoulpunk. Make up your own absolutely brain dead genre to file it under in your local supermarket.
I guarantee you will regret it. So ... Why don’t you go and fry your brain with some TV instead?
