New review of Fissures from Hypnagogue Music Reviews

We are very pleased to have received a review of “Fissures’ from the always excellent Hypnagogue Music Reviews site. Describing it as “a stunning density of isolationist ambient sound, chillingly cold and marginally disturbing”, reviewer John Shanahan writes an insightful and thoughtful piece that nicely captures the essence of “Fissures“. Thanks John!

In addition to the Hypnagogue review site, be sure to check out John’s excellent Podcast as well…

Update to Steven Severin Show

We’ve received word that the Steven Severin show at the Drake Underground on August 28th (and the rest of his North American tour) has been canceled for personal reasons.

The Sound is Watching You

Dearest kaltenfriends,

We’ve spent most of the summer hard at work in our studio space in Antarctica and now we are very pleased to announce a new project which we will be presenting as SubZeroArts.

“The Sound is Watching You” is a multimedia soundart installation that will be part of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2011 on October 1st in Toronto, Ontario. We’re very excited about this opportunity and we encourage you to visit the SubZeroArts site to learn more about the installation and to find out how you can help make “The Sound is Watching You” happen.

Needless to say, you’ll be hearing more from us over the next few weeks as things begin to take shape…

Kalte live at the Supermarket on March 8th

We are very pleased to announce that we will be performing live at the Ambient Ping in Toronto on Tuesday March 8th to celebrate the release of our upcoming album “Fissures”. We will be performing a set drawn from the mysteries of the Hadopelagic Zone, cold music heard in inhospitable spaces, ominous and dark tones inspired by massive pressures and arctic depths. Our good friend URM and guests will also be performing that night along side a premiere screening of “Luminations”. There may also be cookies.

We hope that you’ll be able to join us.
