If you are a fan of noise, experimental, avant-garde, and twisted sounds that are meant to damage your ears and mind, you may want to check out the first release from Haute-Cimes of France. Khamer Krahom (Zugzwang Productions) is not to be played loudly at first, for some of the distorted sounds here will either damage your speakers, headphones, or your own ears. But once you get into it and have it at a comfortable level, prepare for an anything-goes approach. Not every track sounds the same, although there is a sense of continuity, whether it’s volume, sonics, or just a freak-out sensibility. Some of the found sounds might freak you out, especially when you hear it as is and you’re not sure whether to take it in the context you think it is, or to simply hear it as a piece of a twisted puzzle.
Khamer Krahom can be had via Bandcamp with a “name your price” option, or you are able to purchase the cassette version where all of the components are custom made. The description on Bandcamp states “No computer used in the making of the artworks for this insert, only found pictures, hand-lettered stamp, boxcutter and a photocopier!”. Only 30 cassettes will be made.
