about

[Released album early - BOOKLET FORTHCOMING - WILL SEND OUT NOTIFICATION WHEN DOWNLOADABLE. For now, you can hit 'Info' next to each track for details.]

"Gjentagelsen" is a Danish word [literally meaning "the taking back"] that Søren Kierkegaard uses to mean "repetition" -
"...for what is recollected has been, is repeated backward; whereas the real repetition is recollected forward" -Kierkegaard, "Gjentagelsen [Repetition]".

"As a conceptual introduction...we are invited to think 'repetition' and 'recollection' as the same movement - only in opposite directions. The same but opposite. And 'repetition' as a movement 'forward'." -Arne Melberg, "Repetition (In the Kierkegaardian Sense of the Term)", Diacritics Vol. 20, No. 3 (Autumn, 1990).
['Recollection' is often tinted with nostalgia. I attempted to suppress this urge as well since I ain't Proust and don't eat madeleines]

Each sound tediously hand-crafted by GⒶÖS, created almost entirely out of Windows ME & XP error sounds.
Everything recorded live cause fuck mastering. Yeah, I'm THAT anti-authority ;)
