Blackhole

by K2 with .es

  • Compact Disc (CD)

    The unique collaboration of K2, the mad doctor Kimihide Kusafuka’s solo project with .es, the piano and sax improvisation duo that goes to and fro between contemporary and passion.
    Coalescence of mineral- like noise with the improvisation of which pulsation reaches out to skin is something like a space probe that organic and inorganic matter has fused, and has given a life to a harsh dystopia played by sudden strange creatures. The sound that gives uncanny reconciliation and panic to people, as chimera-like figure procuring semipermanent tranquility, has turned into a humane machinery and found itself at the event horizon, and soon will deviate from the visual light range and embrace fulfilled silence.

K2:
K2 is the solo noise project by Kimihide Kusafuka, who is a pathologist in cancer center hospital. In phase 1 (1981-1986), He started the musical activity. He mainly worked as home studio recording and was related to mail art and music. I stopped the musical activity in 1986 due to his medical research. In phase 2 (1993-2002), He re-started his musical activity and also did many live performances. In this era, he used many metal junks and recorded metal junk noises with cut-up method. Many many items were released in the domestic and oversea labels. In phase 3(2005~), he moved to Shizuoka. He is using junk electronics instead of metal junks, but he directs to mixing technique using MTR as instruments. K2 is the Japanese noise legend in oversea and is doing more active in noise & experimental music fields.
