Be sure to drop by the NAISA Gallery (601 Christie Street @ St. Clair, Toronto) and experience our multimedia experience, “The Sound Is Watching You!“.
“Transmissions” is a series of short, abstract pieces that delve into Akumu’s interest in messages hidden within messages, of sounds between sounds, of communications that are slightly beyond our perception… beyond our reach.
Built upon recordings of radio static, electrical interference and guitar-based ephemera, “Transmissions” creates a world of tones, clicks, squelches and pulses – a space that lies between calm drones and arrhythmical noise. Within that space, much like the world around us, perhaps there is something more? A place where lost transmissions reside.
“Transmissions” by Akumu is available for free download as a 62 Mb Zip file containing the full release in high quality 320kbps mp3 format along with artwork suitable for printing.
The Akumu side-project, “Kalte” has a new track on the “Quiet Drones 4″ compilation from the paper+sound label. “Quiet Drones 4″ is the latest installment in the continuing compilation series of experimental ambient drone music. This edition focuses on the theme of winter cold and features music from Atonement, Chromosphere, dreamSTATE and Heiki.

I’m thrilled to announce the release of Akumu’s 6th full-length entitled “Between Worlds” on CD, DVD and MP3!
Recorded and mixed in stereo and full surround-sound, the new disc is 8 tracks of haunting drones, nebulous beats and ethereal crackles. At times calming and at times unsettling, “Between Worlds” draws deeper into an ambient score of dirges, guitar-based atmospheres and unearthly landscapes.
“Between Worlds” is available in 5 editions: digital/mp3, cd, dvd, limited-edition combo-pack and an exclusive collector’s box.
