Reviews:
(Vital Weekly)Behind the acronym KBD, we find Michael Kimaid (drums and percussion), Gabriel Beam (modular synthesiser and live sampling) and Ryan Dohm (trumpet, sampler, and tapes). This is their third cassette for Eh? Records and the first one I hear. They recorded both sides in concert, the first at The Noisy Attic, Toledo, Ohio, on 27 December 2023 and the second at The Lightbox: Kalamazoo, Michigan, on 5 October 2023. From the information I understand, they play long-form improvisational sound pieces and are interested in electro-acoustic music. Both pieces (32 and 26 minutes) are continuous streams of sounds rather than shorter broken-up pieces of music. Not a collage of very different sounds but a deeper exploration of a limited group of sounds, going about from all perspectives and sometimes slowing down or speeding up, with specific sounds coming to the foreground. Still, essentially percussive rattle, beeps, bloop and all sorts of more minor sounds are being used and abused. At times, the music is very much part of the free jazz/free improvisation world, but with all the electronics used, also more drone and noise-like, and it only goes a little to one or the other. The music is not your typical free improvisation, not a blast of mindless noise or a deep drone. Think of a wilder version of AMM on a crossroad with Voice Crack or Kapotte Muziek; sometimes one, something the other, but KBD knows how to pull it off, so it becomes more like their own sound. At times a wild ride, but with carefully placed moments of relative unrest. - Frans De Waard
