AH! KOSMOS is the moniker of Istanbul-based producer and instrumentalist Başak Günak. Her last album is called “Bastards” and was released on Bochum based experimental label Denovali last april.
Albeit Bastards are not orphans, they are freed from models or possessions and reckon no top or bottom, no right or wrong. In these interstices, a band of un-mastered sounds and voices are composing a brotherhood of a new kind.
Spaced-out layers of beats and blissed-out sounds and textures create a sense of slow, echoic wonder that eventually builds to a multi-rhythmic universe of its own. Başak Günak has also composed and created sound design for contemporary dance and plays, short-flms and site-specifc performances / installations in several art spaces.
THE EYE OF TIME is the project of Marc Euvrie. Since 2012 the musician from Caen, France has released three albums via Denovali. His last one is called “ANTI” and is taking us to the most extreme and darkest recesses, influenced by the likes of Third Eye Foundation, Portishead, Neurosis, DJ Shadow, Björk, Sigur Ros, Edvard Grieg, Sergei Rachmaninov or Godspeed You! Black Emperor.
“ANTI” is confronting us with despair – pitch-black and constricting. A long cry in the darkest night, turning against the world, and baring all the frustration; seeing the end of everything, but being incapable of talking.
Yet his work never was supposed to be understood as resignation: “I try to drag the listeners into hell as deep as possible so that they don’t have any choice but to be beaten to the ground and to jump back into light,” says Marc.
