Some time ago I posted this video here:
I don’t know how many saw it, and I can only imagine that few will have actually wondered what it was supposed to be.
Anyway the answer is quite simple: it was a teaser trailer for an album, by some guy whol likes to call himself kurodama, who incidentally is me, or at least one of my identities.
It’s now out! Spam is the New Dada, my latest musical endeavour, can be downloaded for free from Savant at the following address:
On the 30th of April 1993 the Cern officially announced that the world wide web would be free for anyone to use. The internet as we know it was born.
It is now a big part of our lives, information flows in a continuous stream, and we flow with it, always connected.
There is no growing without pains. The singnal that once used to be loud and clean, is getting harder and harder to find, drowned in a sea of gaggeling noise.
Noise is what Kurodama likes to deal with, and the decay of information sometimes, unintentionally produces constructs of surrealistic beauty.
“Spam is the New Dada” is about that, about signal and noise, interference, information decay, content to bullshit ratio and about spam mails that deconstruct language to a point where it almost seems to mimic the work of the artistic avantgarde.
The irony of it all is that spam is much older than the internet itself. The first unsolicited advertising mail was send on the 3rd of May 1978.
You have randomly been picked to recieve this message. It’s all part of our plan.
Check out their other releases if you like experimental, electronic stuff, that probes the borders between music and noise. I especiallty recommend Pop Album B by Sam Kaplan

2080 – Nerd to Geek
I like French electronic music. I like their way of being funky. 2080 takes that funky French electronic vibe to chipsounds. Though there are no real chips involved in the making of his music (he mainly works with analogue gear like an old Juno 60, and some MFB synths) the sound really reminds you of the gamesoundtracks of the past, so I guess it fits here anyway.
This one’s no free download, but if you’re into this kind of music, it’s really worth the expense!
buy the album on 7digital.com (but you can probably find it on other stores as well)
Multifaros – Dreams, Yozef’s Journey
Multifaros is the alias of Bård Ericson, a young man born in 1991 who creates electronical music of various styles and genres since 2006. His primary tools for making music are Reason 3, Little Sound DJ, guitars and other instruments, coupled with a MIDI-keyboard and his passion for music, sounds, life and the universe.
Here’s another great artist blending chiptunes with acoustic sounds with a lot of other stuff, creating an amazing sound, and really interesting music. I highly recomend both albums: Dreams and Yozef’s Journey. Thy are quite different, while the first one is brighter, happier and featuring vocals on most tracks, the second one is purely instrumental and sounds darker and more dramatic.
Nario – the most of me
While this album has one of the worst covers ever, it contains some unique chipmusic gems! This guy has some lurking talent…
