  Work Details  
  With K.K NUll, Chris Watson. Traditional Noh correspondences for their 5 part cycle of plays. Kazuyuki Kishino (K.K.Null): electronics and electro-percussion produced January 2004. Chris Watson: location sounds recorded in East Africa. Zev: 25 binary-acoustic files produced January 2004. Final mixes produced by Zev March 2004. Chris Watson sources: 1: Dawn in acacia woodland. Rapid light and temperature changes. 2: vultures down on an animal carcass in the short grass plains. The intense activity of a feeding battle resolving into the song of a single sooty chat - the fire of midday. 3: elephant herd led by a powerful matriarch, grazing on the edge of a marsh… Gazelles and zebra swish through the long grass… Contact rumbles from the herd females. 4: The on-coming storm; wind rush and the deep smell of change. Low infrasonic thrum. Disorientation and confusion. 5: The amphibian chorus, enveloping yet impossible to locate. Rhythmic dusk and rapid darkness.
