kai beckman a creative assortment of soundforms by my friend kirk, better known as one of the members of the KILN trio. field recordings and acoustic melodies clash and form an auditory collage, reminiscent of brain synapses firing while experiencing something you've never experienced before.

can't wait to enjoy this with the warmth and fuzziness of a cassette. Favorite track: Rain.

about

One may be aware of Kirk Marrison’s work through Fibreforms and Kiln. During the mid-’90s, Marrison collaborated with NYC guitarist Charlie Nash (Arsenal/Rhys Chatham) on two releases slated for Alley Sweeper Records. The first, Waterwheel – Panchroma, was released, but due to the disintegration of the label, the second was not. Waterwheel • Windmill is that release, finally emerging in 2011 under the Windmill • Waterwheel moniker. Combining rhythmic explorations with some seriously alive processing and textures, these pieces still feel fresh today, 15 years after they were recorded.

Nash moved to the Midwest, but his influence on the late-‘70s No Wave New York scene has been noted. Here, he provides a variety of musical textures with objects, prepared and played guitar, and guitar as transmitter of beauty. Marrison sculpts these into teeming atmospherics, constantly dipping in and out of amorphous spaces; at times sounding like a forest and at times like clippings of forgotten landscapes, sewn together by threads of hot water.
