about

This album was initially published on the defunct label Ad Noiseam.
I still deeply thank Nicolas Chevreux for having released it.
The original cover was different ; this time I wanted to use a new design that would reflect the state of play of the world 16 years later. Not all positive but still a bit of brightness. The sharpness of our societies' violence, the absurdity of the capitalist society and the quite blurry future we might never see.

Črno klank (or Crno klank) was the first project I started in 1989, back then a duo that quickly became a solo project and for a very short period of time a collective too, several tapes have been published during the 1990s, and few tracks on various compilations and one CD.

If you wish to order a CD copy of this album, I still have some copies of the original Ad Noiseam version.

Tracks translation :

01. State of play
02. Dreamers
03. The hundred colds factory (This one is a wordplay that can't be correctly translated, when spoken it also sounds like The factory without cold or The factory catching a cold)
04. Small business
05. Servility
06. The decline of the weakening
07. Amazing feat
08. Voyage of discovery
09. Sharp-edged snow
10. Numbness
11. Poetry
