D/B Recommended: Orchestra Of Spheres & Kulku @ West Germany Berlin | Saturday, 13.10.2012

The Orchestra of Spheres takes you to higher dimensions through mathematical ratios of rhythm and the chaos patterns of sound.

Born out of the Frederick Street Sound and Light Exploration Society in 2009, the Spheres have developed a cult-like following in their brief existence.

Like celestial sponges, they draw on influences from far and wide: the hypnotic beats of Kuduro, repetitive minimalist Bornean sape music, free jazz and improvised music and the celestial chimes of gamelan.

Orchestra Of Spheres | Hypercube

The Spheres use homemade instruments such as the biscuit tin guitar, electric bass carillon and sexomouse marimba to create their cosmic dancing sound and the spaced out sound worlds.

Kulku has been founded by Wenzlovar and Johanna Riska and has performed in various constellations with other musicians from the underground music scene of Berlin.

The band is using mainly Wenzlovar´s collection of instruments to produce a surreal home of sounds accompanied by odd stories about dogs as spiritual advisers. Kulku plays minimalistic music that relates to primitive music – many of the instruments can produce only one single tone.

The musicians are (voluntarily) restricted to a limited sound but rising a complete universe out of it. Kulku play with acoustic, partly self-made instruments like xylophones, organ pipes, kettles and pots and create a magic mix of primitive music, drones and hoodoo blues.
