The Berlin based duo of saxophonist Antoine Chessex and guitarist Ktho Zoid, dense alchemical transformations through dense layers of amplification and feedback.


Calcination (Utech Records)
Label: Utech Records    
Released in: USA    

"Calcination is the first stage in the process of alchemical transformation, the administration of heat until a given substance is reduced to ash. It is often symbolized by sulfuric acid, a powerful corrosive that eats away flesh and reacts with all metals except gold. In sociological terms, the fire of calcination represents turning to dust/life and death. Antoine Chessex (Monno) and Ktho Zoid approach their music similarly, burning through dense layers of sax and guitar. Amplification, feedback and reduction are applied until an impenetrable resin remains."-Utech Records

Limited edition of 500.
