New EP Release ‘Sei Shin-Byoin’
On the Kahvi Collective
An interesting and slightly different release this time from guest artist Kinza.Some elements of oldskool 90s techno appear in this quirky but refreshingly interesting 6 track EP, even some kind of avante garde (reminiscent of some John Cage-type) nuances, but they all ‘add up’ into a nice, cohesive track… challenging to begin with, yet drawing you in as they progress.Track of choice is Here we go again, which starts off in a very oldskool melody kind of way, then moves into small breaks and then ends with a mix of c64 sounding arpeggios and a 4/4. Great stuff!
Derelict naval base swimming pool, apocalyptic industrial zone and putrid chemical factories-http://www.kinzamusic.co.uk/gallery/
Been beavering away on a new EP which is finally coming to fruition. In the meantime, my explorations of derelict stuff has had a real medical theme of late, in the form of a couple of asylums and a medical school.
These particular locations have been spectacular and include treats such as suicide prevention cages, sinister toys, human specimens, the best view in London and peeling paint scales the size of dinner plates.
You can see them in the in the usual place-
A Little Blue In The Grey Matter
Available to buy now, in Itunes, Bandcamp and a load of other places. All proceeds are going to a charity providing help to the homeless of Gaza.
I have uploaded 3 videos I produced to compliment the tracks
A big thank you to all those who came to the sebright arms last night . It was a great night. Sorry about my initial technical woes. Incredible what trouble and strife a 6.35mm jack lead can cause. (check out the videos above of ‘Triptych’ and ‘[H+] For Paul’, thats how they were meant to sound). Once I got over that, I hope you were able to take your fingers out of your ears and enjoy the rest of my button pressing. Brilliant work by all the other performers.
Also a big thanks to the wonderful and dedicated Ginny Terry of Beat Unique for putting in all the effort and skill to arrange this.
I hope to do more events soon.
It has been 3 years of fun, under my old name.
Its been a wonderful experience. I have released 3 albums, working with the lovely Ominim (who have sadly decided shut up shop and move on to doing more exciting things).
I have been played on lots of radio including BBC Radio 6, Roundhouse Radio, Flomotion Radio, Radio Valencia, Resonance FM, BRAP.FM. My tunes have been entertaining those poor souls, suffering up-right-in-a-row, on BA flights. I have pressed my buttons for the crowd in a former underground public toilet. I have nearly been beaten off stage with a piñata club by unsophisticated revelers at an unmentionable party. I have done several cringe-worthy interviews and enjoyed making several music videos.
It has been an amazing adventure but it is time to move on to a new project….bringing my old tastes and style to a fresh new home.
I am starting this with 3 items for you
1 Kinza-Sparks of Reminiscence – A free collection of old tracks from my previous work. Download it here. All my older work is available on bandcamp
2 My first album, ‘A little grey in the blue matter’, as Kinza is to be released on 27th November. All proceeds from this album will be going towards helping the orphans of gaza.
3 I am doing a gig at the Sebright Arms in Hackney on the 26th November which will be an audiovisual, button pressing, feast for the eyes and ears. I’ll be playing some of my new tracks there.
Details for these things will all be on my website
I’ve decided to leave my old website in e-stasis as a memory of my previous adventure.
As always, my side interest has been escapades into dereliction and I continue to build my gallery of pictures from decayed and abandoned old sites. This is now at http://www.kinzamusic.co.uk/
There have been plenty of new locations covered recently including
The magnificent Millenium Mills in East London
The asylum of corridors
The Illicit Gallery
There are lots more new places that I have added, go find them, and a backlog of additions to update in the near future.
I’ve also produced some new videos for the new album. Ill give you the link to the first as a reminder of the new album on the 27th.
So, welcome….and see you at my gig, and buy my new album as it’s all going to a good cause.
Been beavering away on the new album and also looking at options for release.
I think it’ll prob self released on bandcamp….let me make a final decision.
Also got to crack on and finish a couple of videos to compliment the tracks. Ill keep you posted.
Hope you have been enjoying the dereliction imagery.
