Aagoo now presents a quadraphonic mix on DVD and a stereophonic mix on CD.
“Let’s recall the sonic memory of earth the hidden history of space and time, listen to the sound buried deep in the ground and floating in the air, folded in invisible dimensions in various phases and scales. Inside my body and brain I still hear everlasting echoes and feel vibrations from the big bang. When thunder strikes I smell destruction and creation and beacon from radioactive substance synchronizes with my heartbeat, light speed blood streams run through my brain. Listen! Laughter of the joy of life, chorus of a vital force. This is all about the endless dance struggling against entropy!”
KAZUYUKI KISHINO was born in Tokyo, Japan. Composer, guitarist, singer, mastermind of ZENI GEVA and electronic wizard. One of the top names in Japanese noise music and in a improvised noise/rock trio ABSOLUT NULL PUNKT (with Seijiro Murayama, the original drummer of Keiji Haino’s FUSHITSUSHA), and also GEVA2 (GEVA GEVA) with Tatsuya Yoshida (RUINS) and Eye Yamatsuka (BOREDOMS).
In 1985 he established his own label NUX ORGANIZATION to produce & release his own works and subsequently the bands such as MELT-BANANA and SPACE STREAKINGS. He also produced the series of “Dead Tech” (compilation albums by Japanese bands) which heralded Japanese alternative music boom internationally from the early 90’s to date.
In the early 90’s he gained world-wide recognition as the mastermind, guitarist and singer of the progressive hardcore trio ZENI GEVA with their extremely heavy sound, releasing five albums produced by STEVE ALBINI (two on Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles label) and a few more on other labels such as NEUROSIS‘s Neurot Recordings.
Also ZENI GEVA recorded twice for JOHN PEEL SESSION on BBC, and immensely toured throughout Europe, USA, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, playing hundreds of concerts.
After playing the guitar as his main instrument for some twenty years, KK NULL has gradually moved towards a more electronic approach. In recent years he has concentrated his efforts on his solo & collaborative recordings, exploring the outer territories of electronica, creating intense clashing wave of noise, structured electro-acoustic ambience, broken down rhythmics, scatte- red pitch sculptures, droning isolationist material which could be described “cosmic noise maximal”
