“Holding on to the subtle ephemera of soundscapes, noises, voices and touch.”

There’s an infinite past, an infinite future and no way of detecting what’s present. In the same moment you’re focusing on it, it’s gone. It’s already a different present. And while the world is constantly trying to distract us from ourselves, we become absent, constantly forgetting about our own presence. There are practices, though, that aim to catch that present moment and stretch it, in order to make us stay into it, as if it was a small jump into a tiny hole that we later discover it’s a whole new universe. One of those practices is listening. Kmru started his musical journey with a step back: before he decided to put something of his own into the world, he just stopped and listened for a while. His field-recording approach to sound made him go deeper and deeper into a sort of meditation that later translated into his music. It’s all about presence, it’s all about that moment that’s almost impossible to catch, but sometimes if you stare into it, you can look into the eyes of eternity.
