KK Null - Kosmista Noisea [Important records - 2006]Kosmista Noisea is yet another exhilarating trip into electro buzzing, rhythmic and noise flecked future city scapes. It almost feel like you’ve plugged into some virtual reality consol for the ears. And if you shut your eyes you almost become one with the sleek, neo. And steel and glass city scapes.
Two tracks on offer here Kosmista Noisea parts one and two ,both recorded live though you wouldn’t think from the sound quality, it’s A1. Part one is recorded in France and is the shortest here at 25 mins, starting off with a watery metallic rhythmic mirage, like sleeping through odd electro waterfall. Slowly it starts to grow and form into a accelerating tone, before drive into beat lead machine talk, licked by wonderfully cold light synth work, like your sliding down a future citys damp alleyway, above your head crawl small robotic spider spinning steel webs. The sound gets more and more messed up, again the tone accelerated, you feel like your been pulled up a great slope, before splash down into strange cooling ambience chatring circuit board pulses . And all this is with in the first 7 minutes of the first track, elements never over stay there welcome, it’s always moving on towards the next, audio wire lined picture.
Part two was recorded live In Belgium and runs for 45 mins. It starts with like an intergalactic tribal vibe, synths swishing under neither the cool as ice beat work. Slowly the tone becomes more sinister, a nice dense boiling drone appears and then dips down into a phaser pulse. It brings to mind twitch movments of half machine and half organic surveillance cameras, bending and aching try to break lose from the groundings. Midway through the track we are throw into wonderful erratic and vicious static pulse, like snake like loose electric cable hissing on a steel floor. Really the second part has alot harsher and nosier feel all together, but it still keeps a very varied and exiting tone changes through out.
Music for you own internal sci-fi nightmares and dreams. Wonderfully denser and hype real soundscapes to loose one self in for a hour or two. Oh and a special mention must go to the hype cool Stephen O’Malley artwork, the odd electro plant in bloom on the front cover and the jewel box with a metallic print on vellum tray card. Roger Batty
