dw051 - Ka-baalim & Bunk Data - The Insomniati: Two 'when you forget you're dreaming and never wake up'

The Insomniati collaboration returns for further audio/visual and textual explorations into the realms of sleepless dreaming. The project uses means stylistically oblique and yet emotionally resonant. We do not delight in darkness nor do we imagine that all is light, we offer questions rather than answers. Those who try to “know” will never know but those who allow themselves to not know will find the fresh face of illumination was always there, just a mirror away. This is the difference between theory and experience.

We divide this exploration into three parts. The first part is connected to the included illustrated story. This is where we explore the dreams of the dying by the dying and the dreams of the dying by their friends. Loss and love are the primary themes here. The second part is a remixed reflection of the first Insomniati release. The two remixes of “1,000 Miles to the Door” feature the abundant talents of Phil Western (Download, Beehatch, Skinny Puppy, Kone, etc) and the mysterious LAP. The third and final part is a single 18 minute improvisational re-animation, a monument to the beautiful chaos alive in each and every moment.

This release is dedicated to the memory of Matt Zaun, the unofficial fifth member of Ka-baalim. You are dearly missed.
