    Release Date: March 25, 2016

    Mastered by Jack Allett

    Limited edition of 300 copies



    Kunlun is but one of the many aliases for French artist Max P. who’s known to the world as the man behind percussion driven psychedelia projects like High Wolf and Black Zone Myth Chant.

    Since 2009 he has released LP’s through Not Not Fun, Holy Mountain. Editions Gravats and Leaving Records.

    On his new record for audioMER. as Kunlun he serves up an dish of eccentric library / new age music gone wrong. The LP is based around improvisations recorded in the summer of 2011 making his first steps on analog synthesis with a very simple set up. 

    Some of those improvisations were also featured on a winged sun tape called Kunlun III released on 2012. 

    The A side offers 5 tracks where he explores a sort of heavily layered chamber acid, diving into low frequencies and ravelly bass synthesizer pieces with weirdly dissorienting fluctuating time signatures.

    Side B is one long trippy maelstrom of seismic submarine bass hypnotisms with deep eroding noise bursts blasting through halfway.

    As a whole it make for a dark and claustrophobic piece of psychedelia that will delight fans of Hieroglyphic

    Being
    , Bernard Fievre, Ron Morelli or Low Jack.





    REVIEWS



    The Attic

    Kunlun is one of the many assumed identities of Max P., also known for musical projects such as High Wolf and Black Zone Myth Chant.

    Time Remaining Unknown has a visual dimension attached to it and if I had to correlate it to an artistic approach, it would be Ruth Asawa’s wire sculptures or Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Nets. The LP feels like an unit, coagulated by an infinity of self-sustaining loops. 

    The simplicity of the compositions takes nothing away from the album; it just gives it a sense of clarity in discourse. The minimal economy of the sounds used augments a time and space continuum, enclosing it without blocking it out. It is meticulously and discreetly crafted, slowly conscientiously evolving and self-perpetuating like fractals, never becoming tedious.

    Although this album represents Max's first venture into analog synthesis using the means of a very simplistic setup, it feels richly intricate. One can be easily tricked by the humbleness elicited by the arrangements, but this is what secures an organic rhythmicity.

    The album is divided into two parts, almost equal in length. All the pieces feature the word time in their name, giving us an insight into what philosophical topic the album is trying to tackle. Indeed, if it’s one thing all these pieces are achieving, is a sense of disconcerted time. You do not know where all the sounds are leading up to or when a song is going to end, if it’s ever going to end. (The Attic, 2016)



    Tiny Mix Tapes

    Having listened to previous Kunlun releases, I’m ultra stoked on what Max (a.k.a. Kunlun, a.k.a. Black Zone Myth Chant, a.k.a. High Wolf) has cooked up on his newest LP Time Remaining Unknown dropping via audioMER March 25. Only providing us with a taste, “Time 4” drops in a synthetic array of non-visually colored elements that drip-dry a brain squeeze itching to be juiced. A beat composed within layers of blips and bloops, swirling a drain pipe that leads into an uroburos tightening like a slipknot, closing in on that pigeonhole, and then widening that gap to allow maximum imagination. So get pumped. “Time 4” is technically the tip. Kunlun has much more in store. (Tiny Mix Tapes, 2016)

    Addenda, Jasper Rigole

    Addenda is the joined title of a series of publications, which reflects on the practice that artist Jasper Rigole (°1980) developed in the past ten years. In that period, the artist manifested himself as collector, artist, archivist, researcher, founder and employee of the fictitious International Institute for the Conservation, Archiving and Dissemination of Other People’s Memories (IICADOM). These seven publications can be viewed as an addendum to the artist’s practice as well as to each publication as such. However, this statement could also be inverted, in which the work itself would function as an addendum to the publication. Central in Rigole’s book is the work “81 things which I thought I had forgotten”, in which Rigole researches the mnemonic quality of 81 objects stored in his studio and how these operate within the artist’s practice. In co-production with KASK, Jubilee, Z33 and Brakke Grond. The publication is bilingual, with a focus on Dutch.

    To a Stranger from a Stranger, Mekhitar Garabedian

    The main focus of To a Stranger From a Stranger by Mekhitar Garabedian is ‘return’: return as in artistic ‘modes of repetition’ and return as in hauntology, the return of the dead, or revenants.The text is deliberately constructed as ‘a tissue of quotations’ from cinema, literature, philosophy, theory, etc., a montage of carefully selected references – weaving writings, countering ‘ones with others’. Garabedian investigates in four chapters and an epilogue the following themes: citation and reference; the construction of a self and identity; diasporic subjectivity and diasporic haunting; and spaces of non-knowledge. In his text Garabedian examines how language and the other both fundamentally constitute and define us as human beings. Mekhitar Garabedian is Armenian by descent, spent his early childhood in Aleppo and Beirut and has lived in Gentbrugge, Belgium, since his youth.

    UPDATE_5, Technology as Context

    Ghent-based international art space Zebrastraat shelters several functions, next to a residence and a centre for the local economy. The building plays a pivotal role in the research and promotion of contemporary art, with a strong emphasis on the interaction between technological and artistic research. To exhibit this ongoing practice Zebrastraat established the Update biennial, paired with the New Technological Art Award (NTAA). The latter is in its fifth edition and offers artists the possibility to show their work in a valuable context. After a call for papers a selection of 21 works was made out of over 350 submissions, selected by an international jury under the supervision of curator Isolde De Buck. During the exhibition (from November 8th – 23rd 2014) these new works are displayed in dialogue with the work of settled artists and next to the presentation of recent technological discoveries.

    MOP Museum of Photography, Keren Cytter

    MOP (Museum Of Photography) aims to mirror and challenge the entire history of photography. It contains approx. 800 polaroids that document the artist’s daily life and travels around the globe in the course of a year. The collection tries to break the boundaries of the personal and the institutional, by placing all photographs under one roof in an original size and a seemingly arbitrary yet chronological order. The photographs are shifting from familiar, atmospheric to staged, portraits, found footage, experimental and kitsch. Each page in the book contains 4 colorful photographs.

    From Contratto Sociale to Colonna di Genk, Luciano Fabro

    Between 1990 and 2007, Italian artist Luciano Fabro (1936-2007) created sixteen publicly commissioned works. This book, along with an accompanying dvd, focuses on the life and works of this extraordinary artist, and brings homage to Fabro’s latest realization La Colonna di Genk. This intriguing work commissioned by the city of Genk (B) visibly illustrates Fabro’s way of thinking and creation process. The accompanying dvd reveals biographical elements as well as the making of and the festive inauguration of La Colonna during Labour Day on May the 1st 2008. The inauguration took place on the renewed Genk Stadsplein (B), just ten months prior to Fabro’s death.
