Critikal Graphorrhea

[ ns60/kvitnu 4/zero008 / CD ]

The writing of long lists of meaningless words, as occurs in some manic disorders. Graphorrhea when utilized in artistic processes, is capable of producing ‘original’ results, especially if certain human-technical decisions help channel the process Critikal is an international dynamic project comprised of four
artists. Each new work is constructed by one member using sound material and structural concepts from the other members. This time the album was created by Dmytro Fedorenko, transforming pieces from Andrey Kiritchenko, Jeff Surak, and Tobias Åström.

Critikal was founded by Andrey Kiritchenko, Jeff Surak, and Jonas Lindgren, who left and was later replaced by Dmytro Fedorenko (Kotra) and Tobias Åström (Militant Fields).

The last Critikal festival appearances featured Dmytro Fedorenko and Andrey Kiritchenko with Jeff Surak live via video from his Washington DC studio.
