For the fourth part of their DECOMPOSITION series the duo kutin | kindlinger confirm the projects identity, but present a concept that is even more innovative and fascinating. They recorded solely waves which were transmitted through a bulletproof glass pane while it was exposed to major physical impacts. They arranged musical corpses that are strictly based on these samples: sonic fragments that document a process of vast physical destruction. What we hear on this album is still music, which has clear tangents with different genres (ranging from electroacoustic to broken beats or club aesthetics), but sets its own unique mood and intonation. The pieces develop only to fall apart again in quite an ear-thrilling manner … this is broken music – assembled in times of uncertainty, referring to the impossibility of safety.
