Belorukov, Ilia / Jason Kahn: Studio Album [CASSETTE + DOWNLOAD] (Notice Recordings)

Recorded in two studios — Saint-Petersburg, Russia and Zurich, Switzerland — capturing 5 encounters between experimental improvisers Ilia Belorukov performing on modular synthesizer, and Jason Kahn, who steps away from his electronics and drums in favor of stark vocalizing, each providing perfectly caustic responses to the other's intense and determined tactics.

Artist Biographies:

" is a musician, artist and writer. He was born 1960 in New York and grew up in Los Angeles. He re-located to Europe in 1990 and is currently based in Zürich.

As an electronic musician, vocalist and drummer Kahn collaborates regularly with many musicians, both in improvised settings and in the context of graphical scores which he composes for specific groups.

Kahn has exhibited his installations in museums, galleries, art spaces and public sites internationally. These works focus on the idea of space: the conceptual and physical juncture points, its production and dissolution, and our relation to it as a political, social and environmental medium.

Kahn's other activities include sound pieces for radio, film, dance and theater. He has also designed numerous CD, LP and cassette covers. As a writer, his work has appeared in books, magazines and as liner notes to many audio publications.

Performing regularly around the world, Kahn has given concerts throughout Europe, North and South America, Australia, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Turkey and South Africa.

In 2011 Kahn started the Editions imprint to publish his own recordings and writings."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"This studio recording of Jason Kahn (voice) and Ilia Belorukov (modular synthesizer) is tense and taut, as dry, crumbling sonic swathes manifest both as machine and human, facilitating an almost ceremonial liberation. Kahn has historically been known for electronic sounds exhibiting stasis and abrasive, enduring minimalism; as of late his work has been primarily concerned with his own unaltered voice. Belorukov's work exists within the realm of improvised noise and electroacoustics, as he prioritizes a wide range of collaborations. Kahn's voice provides a stark contrast to Belorukov's jagged synthesis, like examining oneself close-up in a mirror. Here, these prolific musicians share a unique, intimate intensity through drastically different approaches."-Notice Recordings


"At times Studio Album is a real treat. Ilia Belorukov and Jason Kahn have released incredible music over the years but combined they have released something else. Both are known for their electronic releases but here Kahn is just contributing his vocals. The combination of Berlorukov's caustic electronics and Kahn's grunts and moans are memorable, to say the least. Kahn's vocal style is somewhere between Yoko Ono's shrill wails and David Thomas' guttural bellows. Kahn sounds like a wounded beast trying to avoid its hunter one frenzied lunge at a time. As it crashes its way through its once peaceful home it is being stalked, mercilessly, at a distance by its predator. This is how Studio Album feels. Berlorukov's stark electronics give Kahn's vocals enough room to breathe, but when they need to, BAM, they give him another swipe to know they still have the will to overpower him."-Fran de Waard, Vital Weekly
