kakofonikt - kaktuus (shop excerpts) by Experimedia published on 2014-03-27T23:17:27Z *Excerpts from the album. Now available at Experimedia.net.* kakofoNIKT is an audio-visual group from Poznań, Poland, exploring the borders of industrial music, noise, free improvisation, sound installations, and performance. The group uses such instruments as metal garbage, damaged electronic devices, toy instruments, electronically processed hurdy-gurdy, saxophone, field recordings and concrète sounds, objects of everyday use, and sine wave generators. The band aims to calibrate the listeners' perception into a channel of different consciousness -- experimenting with the time of concerts, as was witnessed with the Respondorium project that started at 5 am; or literally asking the audience to lay down in a series of concerts for dreaming: Dream Machine. Sound becomes the borderline point of experience. The album Kaktuus is an interpretation and translation of an experience with cactus into the language of sounds. The compositions are arranged as consecutive stages of the contact with the cactus, starting from the preparations, such as peeling off the skin and spines, and going through all the stages of the sensations up to the extreme effects.
