Zavoloka / Agf

Zavoloka and AGF - Nature never produces the same beat twice

Zavoloka-AGF - Nature never produces the same beat twice
(click here for sound samples)

Unlike Michael Prime’s more direct use of nature – taking biological traces from actual plants to produce music - Ukrainian musician / producer / graphic designer Kateryna Zavoloka and German poet/vocalist/producer AGF have taken the more familiar root of 'inspired by nature'. It maybe an oft-trodden path, but their modern vision is thankfully didactically opposed to the rainforest drivel that overfills our garden centres …

They produce a binary flux that excites the senses in pattern / shape / texture, mirroring nature - which is in itself is filled with mathematical pattern, and a slightly unpredictable precision, whether you agree with their ultra cold vision is up to you...

The cd is up for grabs from Nexsound for as little as 8 Euros plus p+p (expect a full review when mine arrives)

Those unfamiliar with Zavoloka's work should check out her previous works – most of which dish up a semi-tuneless vocabulary that has all the longevity of the finest in abstract art. One release that's been knocking about for ages is the lovely Suspenzia and there's a recent live electronic collab with Kotra here , and not forgetting her first release from Zeromoon. Agf's site also hosts a fine collection of mp3's to get yer juices flowing.

Groovy - great value too - just thinking about the endless diversity of 50 one min(ish) trks makes me feel quite dizzy...


BTW - Fantastic vision you've got going on there at love and rage...
