A 8 track electronic album (30m 11s) — released October 29th 2021 on OOH-sounds

By fusing fourth world, multi-instrumentalism and contemporary electronica into an archaeofuturistic experience, WESQK COAST experiments with practices of resistance on new album Clava.

Created through large interactions between heavily processed acoustic gear and electronic devices, Clava (Italian for club, mallet) delivers a range of emotions simultaneously tender and villainous. Fragmented vocals, pointillist hints, abstract strumming, cascading percussion and pop mutations unfold within this eight tracker conceived as a personal take on alienation and vulnerability.

Wesqk´s isolationist studio sessions escalated into a fiercely primal approach, leading the producer to the concept of an archaeofuturistic resistance in which subversion, provocation and irony function as tools for pricking small but palpable pinholes into the bias of rules, signs and symbols of musical genre so as to set up a possible—inclusive; yet un-named—sonic space.

Based on mental techniques, such as lucid dreams, semiotic squares, zen practices, sound manipulation, and a surgical use of language, the process of creation was freestyle, led by meditation and music therapy.

"...from a position of powerlessness, it is through the enforcement of mind as a clava that archaeofuture resistance is supposed to function as a practice against convenction and domestication… a low intensity exorcism for millenary hauntings"

After the output of S.T.A.S.H. (2019, OOH-Sounds), eIATROGENIC (2020, Rest Now!) and Paese Fertile—as a duo with Munchies On Flowers—(Opal Tapes, 2020), the Italian producer returns to OOH-sounds with Clava, set for release on (29/10/2021).

Mastered by Roland Nagy. Pro-dubbed limited edition (50) pink cassette housed in yellow recycled plastic case with art-work printed on transparent acetate O-card. (....) Includes instant album download code.
