about

Five years on from the initial sighting, we are revisited by R. Karim's Object of Unknown Provenance. Remastered by Sam Annand, and with new artwork by Tommy Brentall.

OOUP is a selection of music from the archives of R. Karim, written for film, theatre and his own enjoyment. Karim's view is panoramic yet hyper-detailed - taking in elated cloudways and microscopically fractal terrain. Born digitally, but crackling with a weird sentience. Cold and warm. Tender vocals buried beneath painfully EQ'd, hiccupping breaks. VSTs self-chain, chatter and threaten to rip themselves apart like a centrifuge. OST to the Neuromancer film that never was.
