The Spaceship RADIO KYOTO has launched a sattelite called MENTAL MACHINE MUSIC.
Why? How? Like in so many other occasions, things proved to have an energy of their own. Originally, the investment in new equipment was meant to improve the sound of the Mothership. But as always - motherships tend to be a bit heavy in operation, and so the intensive testing of the new equipment created a new sound, which does not match quite with the concept of RADIO KYOTO. It is pure electronics, more agressive, more radical and basic.
That doesn´t mean a split at all, but that way MENTAL MACHINE MUSIC was born. And all the testing provided enough material for a first CD - and the ability of live performances.
All that noise, frequencies, drones etc. are made with a frequency generator, an analogue synthesiser, a kaoss - pad, a fuzz probe and an equalizer. The fuzz probe is basically designed as a guitar effect, but most guitar players don´t like it because of its crossover distortion. That´s why I like it.
So, here we go.
Recordings, editing and cover artwork for the first CD "свобода" are completed. The title is NOT related to the ukrainian fascists. (See "Relaeses")
The "Sound and Visison" section is active now.
3 clips can be found on Youtube:
1. "Decay" - based on a fast loop with frequency generator and analogue synthesizer mainly, visualized by Dieter Riehl.
Not available on CD
2. "Fallout" - pure electronic noise and crossover distortion. Disturbing in optics amd sound.
Not available on CD.
3. "TU - 95 (Drone)" - excerpt from the mighty drone on CD "свобода".
Going Mental! MMM´s first Live - Performance is sceduled for the 1st of March 2017 at HÖRBAR, Brigittenstraße 5, St.Pauli, Hamburg.
