Haarlem Okkult 1b i

Alternative HRLM Okkult coverart.

HRLM Okkult: volt. 2 is in the making,…

As the gang furthers themselfs in their seperate skills of; Science, logistics, photography, illustration and design.  Dat HRLM Okkult krew, remains active in their increasingly effective sonic lair’s.

Recording even more unique sonic encounters and exotic audio machinery for this release,. this release has no set release date so far.

to be continued.

So but, when we made HRLM Okkult : volt. 1,  we tried a few different versions of the cover-art.  I thought it would be fun to show some early versions and alternative colour-setting of the eventual released version.

Here are some of them. :)  Click ‘m for a quite large view.

Phuqtek EP released

Hey everybody ^_^

It’s been a while since i released some music.  And that’s mostly because it’s also almost been a year since i started working a factory day job to pay for debt and new synths.

But also, dues to a shift in the ‘kind’ of music i make.   Whereas i made trance under the alias ‘Whrikk’  before, this release is by ‘WHRK’  – Same guy, different technique.

labels beer bottles.

While there, i tried to stay inspired despite the repetitive, physical work.   So i recorded sounds and worked out a way to make tracks in a shorter time. At nights after work,  or very early mornings.

IMG_3507Part of my messy but efficient setup.

Recording more live synth jams and sampling life around.
Opposed to lots of editing and automating plugins.

For instance, my colleague and friend Koen, helped me record the beautiful sound of servo’s and clicks from a machine that measures spectral data.  Some of these ended up in ‘Majestic12 Factory EBE-2 pt3′.   Cutting them up and making rhythms.   Another featured colleague is the whistling in the same song.

By now, it’s become quite a bundle.  Enough for an album i’d say!
I titled this album ‘Phuqtek’,.. after a machine i got to work with allot in the beginning.

So here is the first solidified result.    This cd with three tracks and the acetate plates [coming soon] with an extra track.

…the rest to follow later.

New shirt! [ "TOI" ]

Had a long day yesterday, screenprinting twenty GLOW-IN-THE-DARK” T-shirts. They don’t glow very long but light up very nicely in UV light.  Printed them on a ‘Loose crew’ fit, American Apparal t-shirts.   Very comfy.

I’ll be putting in stickers and a little mini illustration with every purchase :)

Here’s some progress shots.
