about

The Kosmisk Väg axis out of Malmo has many splintered sub-factions but label co-founder Andreas Malm’s solo “all synthetic” endeavor Body Awareness remains one of the more reclusive. The initial intention around the time of his self-titled 2010 cassette skewed towards purist drone and new age immersion but a fascination with old Roland drum machines revised the vision. The Awakening presents 30 minutes of music culled from six years of sporadic home recording, particularly inspired by a trip to “the forests and empty beaches” of Oregon and Washington state in 2014. Mantric synth sequences bob and weave like crude holographic ragas over minimalist metronomes, intercut with dream sequence dirges, bleached tone float, reverbed stasis, and wildlife. These are less songs than closed-circuit inductions of restrained psychedelia, utopian explorations of stationary movement. Awake or re-awake as need be. Recorded in Malmö, Sweden, 2010-2015. Field recordings from the Pacific Northwest, U.S.
