Hidden Places Suite

As the Halloween season looms again, purveyor of retro faux horror synth scores, Kish Kollektiv returns with a new music video. This is an audiovisual journey through a selection of macabre lo-fi images and clips set to an epic-length musical backdrop that could have escaped from a low budget horror flick from the early 1980s.

From KK: “Last summer I took the compositions from our 2019 release “Dwellers in the Earth” and merged them into a single continuous “suite” that would provide an aural journey through all of the main themes. In some cases I employed unused alternate takes and arrangements and even whole elements I couldn’t find a place for in the original pieces. There was nothing new recorded, it was all stuff from the original sessions re-fashioned into something slightly different. Then I spent several weeks assembling the visual accompaniment from a wide variety of sources, using both still and moving images to hint at a broad narrative progression of sorts, interspersed with more impressionistic  and abstract passages.”

“Dwellers in the Earth” was Kish Kollektiv’s second full-length release, an imagined soundtrack born out of a simple “what if”; if the late Karl Edward Wagner’s infamous short story “Sticks” (1974) had been loosely adapted into a UK horror film (in the style of late period Hammer and Amicus) in 1982, what might its low budget synth score have sounded like?
