about

The Kok EP was recorded around the same time of Bjørn Torske's previous album Kokning. Through series of studio sessions of experimenting with different sounds; instruments, objects of different textures, whose sounds were played within different spaces of various acoustics. The results were then edited into basic rhythm tracks which then were overdubbed with new series of recordings in similar manner. The tracks from these sessions involves more organic/acoustic sound basics and less programmed patterns than Torske's previous albums.

This EP is also the last release in his Kok trilogy (kok means to boil) which started with the beautiful and acclaimed Kokning album, followed by the 12” EP Oppkok (where Torske was remixed by DJ Harvey and Todd Terje) and it ends here with this 5 track EP (vinyl and digital). On this EP we find Torske in a more experimental mood where his love for The Residents, Count Ossie, Moondog and This Heat is visible. The result is a darker and more psychedelic sound, still with the unmistakable Torske signature sound.
