The seventeenth entry in RVNG Intl.’s FRKWYS series, Hungry Shells, combines multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Ka Baird with the late avant-garde composer/performance artist Pekka Airaksinen.
The album was recorded six months before Pekka’s passing, embodying the collision of Baird’s voice and synthesiser rituals with Airaksinen’s lysergic sound explorations. The result is an incredible, surreal sonic landscape.
Shot by Andy Osterhoudt, Martijn Lenten, and Tom van Huisstede watch the performance visual for the lead track Syzygy (For Pekka) above.
