Stream Dark Morph – “BEKA YALO”
1st May 2019: Dark Morph delivers a sensational new track “BEKA YALO” ahead of their forthcoming self-titled album which is scheduled to drop on the 10th of these month (May 2019), via Krunk/The Vinyl Factory.
Dark Morph is a new group which comprises of Sigur Rós’ Jónsi and Swedish composer Carl Michael von Hausswolff, the two began collaborating last summer aboard a research ship called Dardanella, and the album features their hydrophone and field recordings of humpback whales, bats, shrimp, and, naturally, dark morph herons. Von Hausswolff elaborated on their process in a statement:
“While we were on the boat I started to take the recordings, manipulate them and mutate them into drones or other types of musical functions — so we could use the sounds as instruments for building compositions. We decided, “Let’s try not to have them sounding too much like real sounds, let’s turn them into something else.” When I had done some drones, some long tones out of a bird or something, I gave it to Jónsi and he started to peel off certain types of melodious things, and then play it to me. And then we started to just throw the ball back and forth.”
