"What a trip!" (Don Campau)

"... disturbing collage of sound which makes the listener experience so many different things that it almost seems like a journey into insanity." (Chuck Vella, Outer Seventh Records)

"... kind of zapping amongst miked organic sounds, noise, treated patterns ... The whole thing is at times stressed by some traditional industrial (Gristle-like) intermissions." (Alexander E. Wheill)

Listen to Kernave




Kernave album mixed with Natural Born Killers

Once I felt my album Kernave could couple with Natural Born Killers
the same way Dark Side of the Moon couples with Wizard of Oz.
No other movie, just Natural Born Killers. So, here you have.
Kernave and Natural Born Killers.
Natural Born Killers belongs to company it belongs.

More opinions about this release:

"This is not music. This is the world." (Virginijus Mizaras)

"This may be one of the most indescribable and interesting CD's we have ever received. And times it is just plain spooky, which of course makes us love it even more. If you are looking for a really different experience, we guarantee you should look no further."

"Enjoyed Lithuanian samples." (Philip Page)

"Another offering from ENDICHE VIS.SAT, this time moving further into sound-collage areas. Disorienting and surreal, the two tracks on this cassette never move in directions you'd expect." (J. de Jong)

"It was pretty far out. I liked it a lot." (Matt Borghi)

"... this time focussing on traditionnal street foot stomping songs and voice collages! Intriguing and interesting noise manipulation! I've been listening to this just after their "Her Closed Eyes". It seemed as though I might know what to expect. Then a Lithuanian (I guess) folk song breaks in to smack me up by surprise. Actually, this Kernave sounds a bit different from their previous work; it tastes more concréte. Anyway, ENDICHE VIS.SAT hold fast to their style, chaotic and intense, which invades all their compositions. In a few words: interesting, alive." (Alexander E. Wheill)

"What a trip! Very interesting sound treatment. "... a bizarre sound and noise collage work from these Lithuania experimentalists." (Don Campau, No Pigeonholes)

"Voices and noises, streets." (Dangus prod.)

"... I like what I hear so far ..." (David Cotner)

"The Kernave tape is really strange & nice." (Stephan, Drone Troum)

ENDICHE VIS.SAT
Kernave

A.
Music. Everybody knows what the words "Out of there" means... But there comes a time, when Zalgiris becomes the most important thing in the world. Zalgiris with his wife Marceliute and a SM squirrel blowing a concertina, but in the end this is not important - let's go to the market!
Trolley bus.
Here we will find rolled-up consumers, whose teeth are similar to socks. To funeral wreaths. To twenty-five. Welcome! Well, come to the market!
Remember that skipping music coming from the receiver in the corner?
"Everybody will cut off however much he needs, no?" asked K.K., Lithuania's Castaneda, looking at the gathered people. He was leaning over a moved table with a huge knife he had brought from home...
"Those idiotic words", it seems the skipping receiver is singing.
It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. "Who?" A zipper is heard... "Get out everybody..." (this is performed live in the "Langas" club)
But good rhythm will cure dust and the clogged musical instruments in the basement. Nothing's more important than dipping.
10:53 sound the stairs - they're not there anymore, of course. They were standing on the Nemunas' dock in Kaunas. That's these stairs' last recording. I came the next day with a tape machine that didn't make noise, but I found nothing there. Wait a..., were those cement stairs already there, or not? Probably not. At first only one side was changed, then the other. Commercial. Would you like to eat some commercial?
It's not important... It's all not important. Like sleep in a tree.
Zalgiris.

B.
Meditational music for those who want to wake up not in their own bed... It's an excerpt from a session with the Spirit. Zalgiris. A recording from elsewhere. One way or another, the birds will carry us away one day. ...The only thing left is the rustling of the dried out water.
A dance with a doll of the Gnome Tukas in one's hands... In the middle of dark facilities. Not one eye looks at it... A picture in a river... A mouth for screaming and eating simultaneously. (Someone cried 'Wolf!')...
I just remembered the stairs from side 'A'. Not far from them was the store called "Mariakai". Damn, the Naujalis School they moved to children's boarding house! "The Cry."
A hidden crazyness is rising outside.
Here is a quotation from P.Horn's "Taj Mahal".
The end with a long sound of blue leaves.
