about

Travelling across the globe is the ultimate way to brighten your imagination and widen your knowledge about the shape of things. Even a travel diary provide the close sense to its reader; the adjoining experience could be really mind-transferring if the diary is written in universal language. Four years after ‘Temnoe Poznaetsya Chernim’, Klammklang presents another report of KP Transmission’s inner pilgrimage.

Karina Kazaryan has collected the sonic material for ‘Beatrice’ while exploring Armenia, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine, as well as some of Russia's non-obvious destinations. Every day of this wayfaring bore a special significance to the musician, not only through the evocation of memories and insights, but also in conjunction with edifying and effortful books read and films watched (hint: Walerian Borowczyk) during the passages between points. Akin to these inspirations, ‘Beatrice’ takes its stand: the attempt of purest and highest perception of mortals’ desires and sensations, connecting them to the ‘Outer World’.

Making her music spiritual yet up-to-date and challenging, KP Transmission manages to keep this sonic flux as carnal as never before. From erratic layers of ‘Spell’ and proto-amen breaks of 'Eerie V2' to neurotic pulse of ‘Wolf Eyelash’ the album forcloses the genre-conventional “dark night of the soul”-esque vibe with rhythm as its key element. Through the metal clashes, church choir samples and beat-making inclusions of Zeena LaVey’s voice (in ‘Kariades’), ‘Beatrice’ still occurs as voice of trust and ardour; even Dante’s quest for Heavens sometimes was ominous, but had reached its virtuous end.

about

KP Transmission Moscow, Russia

Karina works in experimental electronic styles and employs a unique unconventional aesthetic both in her tracks. Her hazy and grainy compositions sounds murky and chthonic, containing a vague feeling of uneasiness, blurry, obscure atmosphere.
