More Info

"SPIRACLE is the original project of Japanese artist HITOSHI KOJO (currently residing in Switzerland), known to some for his label OCTPIA & some solo-releases (recently also part of JPPALA KPI).
On this, the first SPIRACLE vinyl release, two pieces of sublime Drone-Muzak are placed, mesmerizing and mind-expanding sonic clouds. The two tracks EVESTRUM and EXUSIAI are "focused on the physicality and the osmosis of the sound" as HITOSHI describes it. The acoustic basis-material comes from a glass harp, resonated trumpets, metal sheets & electronics. A kind of sonographical report of a process that a "subtle spiritual existence merges into a physical body and becomes tangible through the senses." The unbelievable cover-artwork as an object is paradoxically representing an invisible world.

THE FINAL STATEMENT OF DRONE RECORDS AND THE LAST RELEASE OF SPIRACLE!" [label info]



"The final one is by Hitoshi Kojo, also known as Spiracle. He's from Japan, but currently lives in Switzerland and who has had various releases before. For this 7" (his first vinyl actually) he uses a variety of acoustic objects, such as a glass harp, resonating trumpets and metal sheets, as well as electronics. The sound here reminded me of the very first Organum record, 'In Extremis'. Slowed down metal scraping, which occasionally folds into electronic overtones and makes a very beautiful vibrating and resonating sound. Like the Wyrm 7", this is not exactly the type of drone music that lulls the listener into a deep sleep, but has a great unsettling character. An excellent work, topped with a great handmade, cloth cover. And apparently this is also the final record by Spiracle. That's two very sad occasions, I should think." [FdW/Vital Weekly]
