GX JUPITTER-LARSEN + A WEEK OF KINDNESS + RICHARD RAMIREZ – Acognitive Culture CD (4iB Records)
Acognitive Culture consists of 5-Parts featuring the collaborative inputs (and outputs) of 3 prolific American harsh noise experimentalists GX Jupitter-Larsen (of The Haters), A Week of Kindness (also known as Sean E. Matzus of Black Leather Jesus, among many others) and Richard Ramirez (namely of Werewolf Jerusalem and Black Leather Jesus). These 5 different sounding tracks start off with the gentle buildup of low-range vacuum-like hums that form the basic textural sound ambience. The overall electro-acoustic landscape gradually gets engulfed by the incessant build up of raw rhythmic drones with occasional minimalistic feedback noise and snippets of film dialogue. The unsettling intertwining of sonic dischord and all the nuances that they encompass reflect the true essence of each individual artist involved, which make this joining of creative minds a unique experience deeply rooted in sonic aestheticism.
