Too Close To Being Far Away From Everything


In July of 2013, the musician David Sylvian staged two simultaneously held photographic exhibitions in Japan, one (“Abandon”) at the Spiral Garden in Tokyo, and the second (“Hope”), in an abandoned building located in the port town of Uno as part of the Setouchi International Art festival 2013. The exhibitions dealt with the theme of hope and its uncertainties, outcomes, and the beauty of the present.

The Kleefstra Bros are poet Jan Kleefstra and guitarist Romke Kleefstra, both members of Piiptsjilling, The Alvaret Ensemble, CMKK, Tsjinlûd, Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra and several collaborations. – kleefstrabros.bandcamp.com

Dize is the 8th album by Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra (K|B|K). It was recorded during the same sessions as the trio’s 6th album Dage (Low Point, 2016) and can be considered as its twin album. As always, the music was 100% improvised, with no negotiation beforehand. The result is, what one might call typical K|B|K, slowly moving, pitch dark soundscapes by the guitars and effects of Romke Kleefstra and Anne-Chris Bakker, with spare spoken word by Jan Kleefstra. – released February 17, 2017

Over the past few years, Aidan Baker (Nadja, Werl, Hypnodrone Ensemble, Caudal and many more) and [ B O L T ] have worked on a joint project – and the work has paid off. The result is a massive sound storm consisting of drone, feedback and an extravagant atmosphere. The three basses create a gloomy soundscape with the percussions contributing textural and atmospheric elements, rather than beatss or rhythms. The two songs on the collaboration album are like a maelstrom, a journey, a flight through a foggy night. – released December 10, 2021 – wearebolt.bandcamp.com
