KUNTARI – “LARYNX”
KUNTARI – “LARYNX” CD
Larynx is an instance following up the previous album Last Boy Picked (2021). Tesla Manaf continue his experimentation in creating unorthodox embouchure technique for cornet/trumpet. The goal is to imitate animal mating calls sound and gigantic fiction creature. Combining such primal sounds with the rhythm of Banyuwangi’s Hadrah Kuntulan, and the Balinese-chinese Sar Ping/Barongsai (lion dance). This new sounds created by a duo of drum-percussion and cornet-guitar, with tons of variation of heavy rhythms. Intentionally neglected the notes, the music produced percussive sound along with dark ambients. The concept has been developed for almost 2 years involved research in various places. This is the CD version has a brand new bonus track which turned out to be the most engaging piece on the album. With a liner notes from Rully Shabara (Senyawa), comes with an A2 poster on every CD.
