I’m very happy to announce Akumu’s latest release “Transmissions EP” on the PingThings net-label!

“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.

I’m extremely pleased to announce the release of new music from Akumu on the brilliant Panospria label.

Descent” is 4 long-form ambient pieces that are based on field recordings captured within train stations, banks and other large structures. After digitally ground down and reformed into miniscule parts, an imaginary “molecular soundtrack” emerges to get lost in.
