Surprise! Brand new Kyler concept album (aka: Henry Collins / Shitmat) 'Magiske RÝr' - Download Free now!
SURPRISE! In a week where we've already had a brand new video from Protest Crayon, we thought we'd hit you with something else rather fascinating and special.
The notorious Mr Henry Collins has only gone and made a bonkers but beautiful concept album and donated it to Bit-Phalanx. To many Henry is the artist formerly known as veteran Planet-Mu breakcore terrorist, Shitmat. But along the way he's also been known as Kyler, which is a guise he's dusted off for this new collection entitled 'Magiske Rør'.
Kyler is the name for Henry's calmer, more cerebral side, and here he found himself spinning a plastic 'Whirly' tube around his head one day and was seduced by the eerie harmonic sounds it produced. A field recording a a solid day of editing and producing later, 'Magiske Rør' emerged. A 23 track collection of experiments made from the one single field recording of Henry and his Whirly.
In Henry's own words...
""In December 2012 I made a recording of myself swinging a plastic tube around my head. I liked the sound. It was majestic. A few months later I decided to sample the recording and make a song from it. Magiske Rør is a project concerned with taking a singular recording of a sound and making a set of songs solely from that sound.
The album has a vague dream like mood to it and was made so that the sound I recorded can live on in many different musical forms. The programming and ideas are purposely basic and transient. They were generated over the course of seven hours on March 27th 2013."
'Magiske Rør' is available to download for FREE from our Releases page now. Help yourself, and enjoy.
Many epic thanks to Henry!
