MATERIALS IN THE FLOW OF TIME - Among the recurring elements in Timo Kube’s art are minerals like chalk and clay as well as a variety of synthetic materials, which he often finds in public settings or in nature. What can we say about their origins? How do the changes they undergo affect the stories they tell us? How do they exist in time, and how does time inhabit them? Kube thinks his materials in their multifaceted quality and in relation to human perceptions and life—conditions change, new connections and compositions emerge. Kube’s objects and wall pieces investigate the aesthetic characteristics of selected substances, an applied materials science he intertwines with a distinctive ethic of sustainability: rather than discarding raw materials, he feeds them back into the cycle of his creative process.

This practice extends into the physicality and design of the book. Made using a number of different papers, it offers a range of visual and tactile experiences. Sensibilities is the first monograph on Timo Kube’s oeuvre.

With essays by Christian Berger, Rebecca Lewin and Robert Luzar

Unworldly Potential forges a unique testimony to an artist not belonging to any genre in the newly released full-length digital edition on memoirs by Data Morgana.

Continuing the labels interest in open-ended collaboration and releasing sonic memoirs in various audio formats, Data Morgana, without question, in the realm of electronic music is one of the finest you might encounter.

The album is a meditation on the producers ever-challenging approach in blending electronic music and natural sounds. Some recordings were taken live in single sessions allowing creative mistakes, hums and noises, natural phenomena to take centrefold.  Other compositions were carefully arranged with few collaborators on saxophone and guitar harvesting aetherial melodies and repetitive motifs to dub delays and ecstatic bursts of earthy and metallic textures rich in timbre.

LP SOLD OUT + PURCHASE DIGITAL >>>>



The album is a collective of improvised piano takes and field recordings devised by the composer's own 'habit' of processing and editing raw phases to explore electroacoustic and textural sounds to blend in harmony. Habit is a memoir of what the composer describes as sound depicting the scenery of himself mirrored on the surface of water, or perhaps lying beneath. Searching for the serene. 

Marihiko Hara is a composer residing in Kyoto, Japan. Graduated from the Department of Education, Kyoto University. His main interest is to compose serene silence in music and to pursue his own texture of sounds through electric/acoustic variations and field recordings. Hara's recent album Landscape in Portrait (Beat Records UK/JP) produced an immersive blend of melodic piano and electric abstract sounds.

In 2013 Hara received an invitation to join Ryoichi Sakamoto for an improvised session on NHK-FM RADIO, Tokyo. Since 2012, he has participated in Dumb Type, Shiro Takatani's project CHROMA, ST/LL and other installations. Hara also produces music for theatre performances and other collaborations in various creative fields, such as Vessel by Damien Jalet and Kohei Nawa, ASHIATO-HIME by Hideki Noda, Paris Fashion Week and Kabuki, a traditional Japanese form of theatre.

Hara has released music through Home Normal (UK), audiobulb (UK), leerraum (CH), night cruising (JP), Drone Sweet Drone Records (FR), Beat Records (JP/UK) and mu-nest, a label based in Malaysia. Habit is Marihiko Hara's first LP 12" collectors edition and his first release for memoirs.
