GREEN is a continuation of sonic explorations navigated by Kösmonaut and is an allusion to a previous release (Kösmonaut I or unofficially the BLUE LP). This series is influenced by the sun swallowing days of proto-electronica and intense vintage synthesizer ecstasies of yesteryear. GREEN is an untamed beast, vastly different from previous Kösmonaut releases; with plenty of subtle touches of archaic and primitive electro-house synthesis and slowly-evolving drone germs.
Released in a limited-edition of 50 on cassette by Avant Archive, April 2012.
"Kösmonaut is Patrick R. Pärk. Touching on styles from the late 1970s through the early 1990s, Pärk crafts what almost might substitute for a posthumous ransacking of one or several of these famed forefathers of electronic music. Of course, what holds my interest is not the fact that Kösmonaut is playing in a well-established and loved style, but that he also (fortunately for us) lends an exponent of experimental nature to the pieces. Of course we can identify the acid, the kraut, minimalism, and so on, when we are confronted with them. But we certainly can't say when we'll be confronted with these elements, and that's what makes me smile, and of course, listen." - Avant Archive, 2012.
