10 Years of Kalte

LanthanideCoverOctober 1st 2018 marks the tenth anniversary of the release of the first Kalte album, “The Lanthanide Series“, so we thought that we’d mark the occasion by sharing some of our experiences as Kalte (and SubZeroArts) by looking back at some of the work that we’ve done over the last decade. We want to tell you a little bit about how we do the things we do, and we also want to thank the awesome people that we’ve been able to work with over the last ten years. Every day in October we’ll be posting something new to celebrate #10yearsofKalte, and we hope that you’ll join us as we walk down memory lane.

Come back tomorrow to find out more about the early days of our collaboration leading up to the recording of The Lanthanide Series…

Waitasec, what do you mean you’ve never heard “The Lanthanide Series”? No problem! For all of October you can stream it or pay what you can download on Bandcamp, and if you like what you hear you can send your email to info@kaltemusic.com and we’ll send you a copy of our latest release “Covalencies” free!

Transmissions at Nuit Blanche Toronto!

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!

naisa2017-webgraphics-blogpost1Our visual art project SubZeroArts is very pleased to announce that our latest installation Transmissions will be presented by New Adventures in Sound Art at NAISA North Gallery in South River.
