Kalte on Spotify

Thanks very much for all of your support for our new album “Phages“, we’re really excited that you’re enjoying it so much!

We’re also very excited to announce that the Kalte catalog is now available for streaming on Spotify. All six of our albums including “Phages” are available for your streaming enjoyment, and to celebrate we’ve made an introductory playlist for you to check out featuring tracks from across the Kalte collection, along with a couple of tracks from our individual musical projects Akumu and mara’s torment.

In addition to being a great introduction to our work, Kalte Playlist.1 is perfect for all of your Hallowe’en soundtrack needs!

Phages

We are very pleased to announce the release of our latest album, “Phages“, a collection of new music to usher in the second decade of Kalte’s work creating abstract ambience.

Alternative biology, improbable terrain, and unfathomable climates are all present in this latest work, combined with the classic sounds of glacial movement and xenomorphic disturbances that have defined the Kalte sound since it’s inception.

“Phages” is our sixth release since forming in 2008. Heavily influenced by chemistry, cryogenics, and alien geography, we continue to expand on our theories and explore the sounds of science…

“Phages” is available now for streaming or PWYC download on Bandcamp.

Audio Bleed Oct 25We’re very pleased to announce that Kalte will be performing at the Roland Inspiration Centre in Toronto along with our good friends dreamSTATE and Hozerz as part of the latest installment of Audio Bleed on Thursday, October 25th.

We’re particularly excited about this performance as October marks the Tenth Anniversary of our first release “The Lanthanide Series“, so we’ll be diving deep into the Kalte songbook to mark the occasion.

We hope that you’ll be able to join us as we celebrate a decade of making mysterious abstract music.

RSVP to the Facebook event to keep updated about the show…

 

Covalencies

Kalte_Covalencies_cover-1000x1000Covalencies is the latest release by Kalte, new music inspired by Kubrickian geometry, abstract forces, and cold fusion. It’s a voyage through unfamiliar terrain, a trip through new spaces and environments defined by ghostly chemistry and dark physics.

Available now from Bandcamp.

NBTOSZA17

Our visual arts project, SubZeroArts, will be presenting our new multi-point sound/art installation Transmissions at 401 Richmond as part of Nuit Blanche Toronto on Saturday, September 30th!

Transmissions creates an aural environment defined by white noise as broadcast by 16 mounted antennae-like metal spires positioned within a contained location. The sounds of cosmic radiation, sun spots, encryption anomalies, and more are all interwoven by the spires to create a unique environment defined by audio frequency radio waves such as tweaks, crackles, and swishes, bringing previously unheard sounds to the forefront of consciousness, inviting participants to acknowledge and experience their aesthetic nature without subconscious filters. Through the creation of this new environment within a previously existing location, participants will be encouraged to recognize the reality of the myriad spaces around them, and the many possible futures that those spaces offer.

We’re very excited about presenting Transmissions as part of Nuit Blanche Toronto, and we’ll be sharing more information with you over the next few weeks leading up to the event. In the meantime, be sure to like SubZeroArts on Facebook or add us on Twitter or Instagram to keep up to date with all the details!

We’re thrilled to be working with NAISA again, and we hope that you’ll come out and see Transmissions if you’re in the area!
