GRAVES AND ORCHESTRA PITS was, is and will always be Yoshihiro Kikuchi and Daniel Vujanic. Now and forever. The power of a dual autopoietic entity imposed upon accidental a(n)esthetic concepts like culture/subculture, form/freedom, organic/electronic in a world of total, indifferent and mindless consumption. The duo is simply not interested in dealing with tautological frameworks, labyrinths of nostalgia or self-indulgent repetition. Instead GAOP have their share in an ancient mantra called „destruction is creation is destruction is creation“. They have their own unmistakable pulse. No, it´s certainly not mechanical. This „doorganism“ is alive. And somehow it feeds on a higher state of perception.
Time is a flexible concept. In their four hands it´s a whip. Drums, guitars, electronics and synths are bleeding points, lines, edges, triangles and circles into crass and subtle engrams of emotionalized information. A moment is a moment revealing itself in another moment. Some might even call that music. Yes – MUSIC. Music like a fool´s hypnotic errand into hell and back. Sounding like the doom infested ambience of black electronic rock ´n ´sludge ADHD psychedelia. There it was. Grains of popular culture. Again. It almost unveiled itself.
But - words have no meaning,“they can only do harm“ someone famous sang. Words always refer to different contexts and amplify confusion. As a matter of fact the Book Of GAOP (BOG) starts with: „In the beginning there was a sound...“. And it continues:
“There is no such thing as genre. There is no need for style. There´s no audience, no fashionable band/project to be associated with like some kind of tragic echo of the sepia tinted past. There´s just a certain VISION. A vision is the consequence of a choice.“
Well, that´s certainly neither history nor the ephemeral content of the mind-numbing hipster machinery of distinction. Everything has already been sold. Period. You can move on now.
This duo is hailing from Japan/Germany and is going to release the albums „Deadalian“ and „Schattenhaus“ soon. Meanwhile you can listen to their astonishing debut album „GRAVES AND ORCHESTRA PITS“ (Utech Records).
