Cascone, Kim: The Knotted Constellation (Monotype)
Label: Monotype    
Released in: Poland    


"The Knotted Constellation is a cinematic sound narrative that moves the listener through a series of auditory fields. Each field is separated with 'digital black' thereby framing or bracketing the 'rotted coordinates' - each one a point on a decayed map of a dystopian sound-scape.

This release is a mixture of field recordings from around the world, surreal collage techniques and synthetic sounds derived from digital audio tools 'The Knotted Constellation' allows the listener to lose themselves in the territory and not merely the map of their darkest imagination.

With contributions by C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core), Lithuanian sound artist Darius Čiuta and Berlin-based circuit bender Guido Henneböhl among others.



Kim Cascone has a long history involving electronic music: he received his formal training in electronic music at the Berklee College of Music in the early 1970's, and in 1976 continued his studies with Dana McCurdy at the New School in New York City.

In the 1980's, after moving to San Francisco and gaining experience as an audio technician, Cascone worked with David Lynch as Assistant Music Editor on both Twin Peaks and Wild at Heart.

Records, a label that he founded in 1986, transforming it into the U.S.'s premier electronic music label.

At the height of Silent's success, he sold the company in early 1996 to pursue a career as a sound designer and went to work for Thomas Dolby's company Headspace.

After a two year stint at Headspace he worked for Staccato Systems as the Director of Content where he oversaw sound design using algorithmic synthesis for video games.

Since 2001 Kim has been touring Europe performing, conducting workshops and lecturing on post-digital aesthetics in sound art...

Kim has released more than 30 albums of electronic music since 1984 and has recorded/performed with Merzbow, Keith Rowe, Tony Conrad, Scanner, John Tilbury, and Pauline Oliveros among others.

Cascone is the founder of the microsound list which focuses on issues concerning post-digital music and laptop performance (http://www.microsound.org) and his writing has been published in Computer Music Journal (MIT Press), Artbyte, Contemporary Music Review, Soundcultures, Parachute Journal, Junk Jet and Geometer.

In 2008 Kim attained Italian citizenship and is currently a citizen of both the USA and Italy. He lives on the coast of California, just south of San Francisco, with his wife Kathleen and son Cage."-Monotype
