Some people will tell you only the freaks come out at night. But we know better the night is populated with butterfly’s, owls and other birds of paradise. We like to wake up when the sun goes down and party till the first sparks of sunlight. Just like Bob we are Nightbirds!

SMK121 | Project Intonarumori- Exhibit A12/04/2018
The new building site known as Corpus-Oegstgeest may be looking to make a C21st Ballardian interzone-out with references to high Egyptian burial ritual. However new sounds are unearthed from this new Valley of Tombs; from young Hep Cats too, dragging in some Leiden attitude too, where sipping coffee in soft shoes is the law. Project Intonarumori’s debut brings us recordings of flutes, pots, pans and what sounds like a lot of pedal and tape hiss, heepy style. A C21st algo-drop out may be happening all around us, but here we get the sort of racket unheard since T-Dream stopped sticking contact mics on cash registers. Imagine if Red Crayola worked in the bulbs.
