Introducing the second release in Chapter’s new music series, COMPOSITION_DISORDER with artist, The KVB. Based upon the blending of disciplines of similar mind and direction coming together as an inspiration of sorts, COMPOSITION_DISORDER, features the artist’s own uniquely conjured interpretations of dark, distorted but emotionally powerful ambient sound. By creating irregularity in compositional spaces the perspective of scale and the listener’s place is shifted.
The second of the music series, Poetics of Space, is provided by The KVB. The KVB is an audio/visual project of U.K. duo Nicholas Wood and Kat Day. This U.K. duo (whom currently reside in Berlin) blend reverb-soaked shoegaze with minimalist electronic production to create their delicate and ephemeral sound. Formed in 2010 by Nicholas Wood and Kat Day, The KVB got started with a number of limited cassette and vinyl releases before their first full-length, Always Then, arrived in 2012. Two more albums, Immaterial Visions and Minus One, arrived the following year, Minus One being a proper release of material that had surfaced before in the form of digital downloads and extremely limited cassettes.
Poetics of Space was influenced by the strong, minimalist aesthetic of Chapter. The work is an immersion into this concrete landscape via machine-like processing of the drums. “We tried to capture the phenomenological experience of the architecture with the textured synths and guitar to create a solitary narrative throughout this imagined space,” describes The KVB. “We’ve also recently moved to Berlin, so that may also play a part.”
