New Podcast: MERZ0004 – zlknf – Bast Babylone (May 19, 2005)

Click here to subscribe.

I was searching for track to feature tonight in honor of the Music and Cats theme of the Bad Kitty Chaos Festival, and eventually settled on this selection from Bast Babylone by zlknf:

lknf: free noise from an autonomous organism.
territory of new sonic landscapes in permanent questioning and mutation, quasi-silence purity to gliding noisaural imensitudes.
Bast Babylon EP available through Merzbau.

In this case, I am interpreting the theme as more “inspirational” than literal, i.e., music inspired by cats rather than created from cat sounds. Certainly, the references to Bast suggest a feline connection, as do the following quotes from the credits:

bast babylone is dedicated to bosch and sybilla.
zlknf thanks the electric masters for their gates are open,
her cats for their love is unconditional, merzbau for the immediate
cooperation and sympathy, and the Friends – AGAPE

Musically, this track reminds me a lot of the piece I did for Dorian Grey's Box, as well as several works in 2 1/2. Disturbingly so. Most likely it is common elements inspired by listening to computer music (ala ICMC and SEAMUS), but perhaps there is also a common element of the cats…

  1. 🙂

    hello! I'm zlknf and read your review. thank you in the first place for selecting bast Babylon EP 🙂

    I haven't heard your piece, but I can guarantee you I didn't or wouldn't know even it existed, so mind this is all original material.

    I thank you, and the cats 🙂

  2. You're quite welcome. And now worries on the "originality" issues. Indeed, my piece came late. Just a coincidence :).
