KNEALE, ANTONY MILTON and KIYOHARU KUWAYAMA 'CKAMKK'.
Previously unreleased recording of an epic drone recording
made in Nagoya, Japan during the Birchville Cat Motel
and A.M tour of 2006. Kiyoharu Kuwayama (Lethe) had
been kind enough to organise us a show and then suggested
that we hire a studio the next day to do some recording.
As I recall there was very little pre-amble, we arrived,
set up quickly and launched straight into it. Kuwayama
has done some minor editing but this record is pretty
much the improvisation as it happened. Kuwuyama played
bowed guitar and cello, Campbell played electronic bagpipes
and ebowed strings, I played violin, live-captured tape
loops and SK1. We all had contact mics and a selection
Lathe cut is almost the perfect format for this release,
the surface noise fits right in with the ghostly otherworldliness
of the hiss, crackle and droning hums of the actual
recording. Its a beautiful thing and effectively captures
where the 3 of us were at with our music in 2006. I'd
assumed these recordings long lost and was overjoyed
to discover that Kuwayama still had them and to be able
to share them with you now.
