about

5730±40 was recorded in 2012 in Berlin, and released on a five track tape by Land of Decay (link at right or below). Here you can purchase the digital versions of four of the tracks. Taphos a 30 min composition is only available on the tape.

OKO is a musical and visual collaboration between two artists, both with an interest in improvised aggressive noise - performed live. Neither the sound nor the spectacle take center stage, but constantly wrestle for the spectator's attention. The performers are Robert Heim on electronics and Aleks Slota on voice and visuals. Heim has a long history of musical innovation, starting his musical career as a bassist in a variety of bands, moving on to creating live electronic dance music, ambient soundscapes and now live noise, in some ways coming full circle. Slota has been creating visual art for well over a decade, with a strong emphasis on performance art. He also provided vocals for the math metal band, Hexacron. OKO is an attempt to create a total environment, enveloping the audience in its presence and communicating through multi-sensory, abstract impulses that are intended to provoke a deep individual experience.
