Koen Holtkamp recruits army of bees for mini-LP on Thrill Jockey

Do you remember how entrancing and appropriately multi-textured Field Rituals was? Or how purely amazing Mountain’s Choral was and is? These are the prior masterpieces that you need to bring to mind when I tell you that Koen Holtkamp has plans to release a new mini-LP for Thrill Jockey come November 2.

The work is titled Gravity/Bees and is comprised of two major works that both combine and build off field recordings, but are later enhanced and altered with studio techniques. Yeah, one involves a recording of a hive of bees and includes a lot of sound processing and modulation jargon that will most likely mean absolutely nothing to most folks. Don’t get me wrong though, this thing is gonna be killer without a doubt.

Gravity/Bees tracklist:

01. In the Absence of Gravity Please Note the Position of the Sun
02 Loosely Based on Bees
