Fertile

A 8 track experimental album (51m 23s) — released April 23rd 2007 on Touch
Fertile is KK NULL's first album for Touch, following his collaboration with Chris Watson and z'ev [Number One - Tone 24, 2005], which boomkat called "moving and atmospheric", and The Wire wrote "a complex dramatic work from a strict economy of means". KK NULL (real name KAZUYUKI KISHINO) was born in Tokyo, Japan. Composer, guitarist, singer, mastermind of ZENI GEVA and electronic wizard. One of the top names in Japanese noise music and in a wider context, one of the great cult artists in experimental music since the early 80's. Comfortable with layering & mixing different sounds from different locations and times, digital and analogue sounds into one piece. Kazuyuki came up with the idea of mixing field recordings taken from a trip Kakadu National Park in Australia into some of the unfinished tracks in the middle of working on this album. Imagine a magnificent symphony orchestra of insects, frogs and birds in wetlands just before sunset, trapped in a cage of digitalism. His intense clashing wave of noise, structured electro-acoustic ambience, broken down rhythmics, scattered pitch sculptures, droning isolationist material could be described "cosmic noise maximal/minimalism".
