KK Null - Peak of Nothingness
it takes a special person to conduct successfully two different musical careers at the same time and japanese kk null is truly one of the few. he has gained recognition for his work with terror punk rock project zeni geva as well as his self-titled solo works. 1987 witnessed the birth of zeni geva and in the years following an impressive history grew. they recorded a session for bbc’s famous john peel; worked intensively with steve albini; were produced on jello biaffra’s label (dead kennedy’s), alternative tentacles; and supported on tour influential bands such as neurosis and the melvins. all the while, kk worked on his solo career. there he experimented with guitars to creating striking and rich noise textures. due to the honesty and quality of his compositions, he has worked with other musical innovators which reads like a who’s who of experimentation: merzbow, james plotkin, zbigniew karkowski (sensorband), seiichi yamamoto (boredoms), keiji haino and david brown to name a few. the partnership between jim o’rourke and kk null has produced several collaborations including the very influential new kind of water released in 1992. kk null has also supported bands on tour like sonic youth and mike patton. due to his solo work and main project zeni geva, kk has performed and toured in many countries across the globe over the years, gaining the reputation of giving the audience a strong performance. having both short and long tracks on this album, it is an experiment in minimal noise and bleeps gauging the limits of structured noise and repetition. a blend of improvisation and compositions, we at hushush believe this latest offering of kk’s will continue his legacy and perhaps raise the bar to the next level. while only recently bleep core and laptop music gained visibility, kk proves with peak of nothingness you can continue doing difficult music through the years and still please an audience interested in extreme experiments.
