K.K. Null - Extasy Of Zero-G Sex



KK. Null (born Kazuyuki Kishino in Tokyo) is an experimental multi-instrumentalist. He began as a guitarist, but soon added composer, singer, electronic, drummer to his list of talents, and also studied Butoh dancing.

Null joined the noise/progressive rock band Ybo2 in 1984, issuing several albums and EPs throughout the remainder of the decade. Later he started to more bands, such as Absolute Null Punkt (aka ANP) and his most well known one, the self-described “progressive hardcore trio” Zeni Geva. From that point he also produced albums for other artists, created his own record label (Nux Organization), and played live and collaboration albums with many other musicians, including John Zorn, Yona-Kit, Steve Albini, Boredoms, Seiichi Yamamoto, Jim O’Rourke, Merzbow, Fred Frith, James Plotkin, Keiji Haino, Otomo Yoshihide, Jon Rose, Atau Tanaka, Zbigniew Karkowski, Z’EV, Alexei Borisov. Noisegate and Philip Samartzis, as well as supporting such artists as Sonic Youth and Mike Patton on tour. Altogether Null has released more than 100 albums. In 2004 he restarted ANP and in 2006 they released their first studio album in 20 years.

This album should not be experienced as a noise project but as a highly experimental work which is said was done without drum machine, keyboard or computers.

Locked loops, drone progressions, sonic intrinsic formations, various string instruments, and that japanese folkloric flavor somehow mixed into those sometimes glitched and bizarre sounds. I hope you get to enjoy K.K. Null for what it is.
