Agonist Moon EP was recorded by Spivkurl on the 14th and 15th of November 2016. The entire thing was recorded and mixed live, direct to cassette tape. The full moon was a very present influence during this session. This is the digital re-master of the original recording.

My concept was highly related to the process of performance on this record. The songs are on the album in the order which they were recorded. For each one, I chose a small group of instruments from my main studio, and then interfaced them in ways which would allow spontaneous composition of a song. Each song was created with a different group of instruments. No attention was given to a song until the previous one had been lain to tape.

Many of the instruments used in the recording were designed or modified personally, including a modular synthesizer, DIY and modified tabletop synthesizers, circuit bent vintage toys, and enhanced organs. Only real instruments were used, as opposed to software.

The entire listening experience is akin to an unexpected psychedelic experience, which takes you places which you may not want to visit. I however do want this, and if you are like me, then perhaps you will find a home there as well!

This is of course a free album, yet if you have the heart to donate with your download, then it will be used to assist in my legal battles stemming from local activism against chemical and biotechnology corporation's control of our regional government.

Spivkurl technically began around 2001, but has been heading this way for a long time. Numerous head injuries, radioactive playgrounds, addiction, shamanism, and Love have all played their part. I build, modify, and re-purpose. I make music with what I create, as opposed to just creating music. Genres are not important in what I do, only experience, feeling, and spontaniety. Spiv makes Spiv music. ... more
