Joseph Kamaru a.k.a. KMRU (Editions Mego) is a sound artist and experimental ambient musician born in Nairobi, Kenya, and currently living in Berlin. His music is a colorful tapestry of field recordings, sonic textures and noise, with many uncanny edges. Pitchfork compares it to a Rothko painting, Resident Advisor to a womb-like space. KMRU played worldwide at festivals like Nyege Nyege, Mutek and Primavera, and soon joins Big Thief and Fennesz on tour.
Violinist and performer Elisabeth Klinck is a promising newcomer from the Belgian underground. As a classically trained musician and member of NEMØ ensemble, she bridges the gap between contemporary classical music and the world of experimental electronics. During her concerts she creates intimate sound worlds where drones, free improvisation, extended violin techniques, loops and composition come together with a strong performance style.
Not So Difficult is a Leuven-based music magazine. It distinguishes itself from others by in-depth interviews with carefully selected artists and a focus on print. "Offline music interviews for the internet age", in their own words. Their third magazine will be released in March 2022 and contains interviews with a.o. Bendik Giske, SKY H1 en Meetsysteem. NSD©3 will go on sale on March 11 in OPEK!
“(KMRU) has cultivated a rich, transportive sound; a living, breathing tapestry of electronic ambience and field recordings which, in a year of instability and uncertainty, attracted listeners in search of brief release and respite.”
“Imbuing supersaturated tone colors with the depth of a Rothko painting, Kamaru exerts a powerful pull; his tracks—some 13, 15, even 23 minutes long—are obsidian-colored lakes that beckon the listener to sink into their lightless depths.”
“Void of any dramatic gestures, Peel's tracks are unimposing and create a pillowy, womb-like space to relax in.”
For the upcoming performances and concerts, a part of the ticket revenue will go directly to Ukraine 12-12.
