Kulku + Lukas Lonski & DJs: Donna Leake/ Ece Düzgit/ Esclé
acoustical sound sources and instruments, reaching from old wooden organ pipes, to xylophones, timpani, scrap metal and kids toys, creates an apocalyptical scenery that is strongly referencing within its construction to contemporary compositions of Avantgarde music like Steve Reich, György Ligeti or Carl Orff. The almost never ending, deep resonance of the tanks that served the band and the label’s producers as a frame for the recordings, created sounds from a extraterrestrial sphere which formed a modern kind of “Trance Music“ - “Primitive Music“ as the band named it themselves.
Founded in 2002 by Andreas Riska (a.k.a. Wenzlovar) and Johanna Riska, Kulku spans out to a maximum of ten musicians, including as well Gatis and Talis Silde from Ej Bejkot or Max Gassman from Brace/Choir. The bands’ sound is a weird mixture of Kraut, Noise, Soul and No-Age. truly a Berlin underground gem.
