KMRU has released the new EP As It Still Is. KMRU wrote his EP this winter in Berlin and Rafael Anton Irisarri mastered the five-song release at Black Knoll Studio in New York. Below, hear how it is still.
In a statement, KMRU said that its EP “brings together fragments of recordings and narratives that were quite nostalgic”. He continued, “Using field recordings mostly from Nairobi, I tried to reconstruct some past experiences into present yearnings (at that time) and think of nostalgia as a refiguration of past experiences, whether lived or reminiscent.”
KMRU is the nickname of the Berlin-based Kenyan electronic musician and sound artist Joseph Kamaru. In May he published the full length of the Logue.
