Released under the wings of Alrealon Musique, 'The New Seed' (ALRN041) marks a new beginning in the world of [ówt krì].
'The New Seed' begins where elements old and new clash and light a path towards the future, creating a brave new world. A world where ambiance, melody and noise are bound together in a polyamorist marriage of disharmony and ethereal atmospheres, walking hand in hand.
'The New Seed' features elements of [ówt krì]'s past, but entwines melody and atmosphere with noise and disturbance like never before. Melodies and layers are set free to flow over looped elements and in doing so, allows the music to breath in unison with its maker.
|"Experiment's from Frankie´s Lavatory - Trilogy (Soundwave On Duty)" 2012 - 2013|
The first part of the experiments are what I like to call a "metal" release, as I studied sounds and textures of distortion while still holding on to the metal aesthetics in the music.
The second part of the experiments are a group of studies in earpiercing and/or mindscrambling noise. Many of the tracks are from a relatively early stage in my career and thus utilizes weird and unconventional solutions, but also a glimpse of what was to come.
The third part of his experiments is a 'contemporary' or art music collection where he tried to create textures while utilizing ideas by different contemporary composers. Polyrythms, but also tape looping and samples play a big deal in the compositions and helped to give insight for his future ordeals.
All funds will be transferred to National Deaf Children's Society in UK to support their mission for deaf children.

coverart by J-C Forsman / LUUVALOA
"[ówt kri] is conjoining with extraordinary approach to creativity. Usually we could met more ambient/drone works of this Finnish artist but always with experimental touch. One of the newest works of Kenneth is dedicated to wide understood experiment with sound emited by triangle, bass, guitars, synth, percussion to mention a few. "Au-dessus De Ma Compréhension (improvisations and effects)" is fascinating journey through different moods, sound sources, harsh colours - sometimes in tribal way, sometimes a little bit cacophony but still organic, minimal and based on improvisation. The most twirled material on our net label up to date."
