KK Null - Cryptozoon 1 [Nux Organization - 2011]

KK Null's Cryptozoon 1 is a playful, energized combination of beat driven sound textures, structural shifts of otherworldly, atmospheric scrabbling, and straight up joyful integration of electronics with field recordings of nature, inspired by time well spent collaborating with Chris Watson on the album Number One (TONE-24, Touch, UK) in 2005.

Captured at various locations in Australia, Canada, Europe and Japan between 2006 and 2010 and recorded by Null with a hand held wav recording device, Cryptozoon contains much of the adventurous, exploratory feel that Watson captures so successfully in work such as Weather Report¯ further building upon the cinematic grounding of place and surroundings that Watson's field recordings allow for¯ although in Cryptozoon, instead of sharpening or elucidating our recognition of specific environs, Null chooses to focus on movement through space. He also treats these recordings as raw sound material in their own right, peppering the more electronic abstractions with flurries of adrenaline- fueled manic rhythms that curl around atmospheric washes of running water, birds chirping, delicate chiming, and bells ringing.



Beginning with high speed propeller-like stirrings that pan, scrape, saw, shimmer, beat, and plunge; one’s perspective as listener is hurled through two movements of shifting spaces, warped landings, and clattering takeoffs that contain surprisingly gentle lulls of submersion into earthy, calming territories.



Another great record from Maestro Null!

This release is comes in the of a highly quality mp3 download & is available direct from KK Null’s website here
