about

The forthcoming release of his new album ‘AKTUAL’ is out via REALMS.

Now singing on his tracks, Koosha describes AKTUAL as a sonic shift towards a new era for his compositions, simulating live instruments and creating an even more ‘Human’ kind of approach to his electronic music.
AKTUAL is the first chapter of the ZUUM trilogy expressing visions of the future life. Each chapter discovering and revealing a single theme from his ideologies of the future. AKTUAL tends to explore actuality or the potential of actualisation by merging different realities. It explores our existence in fact and our effort of encompassing the ‘yet to be known’. At its core is the space between the known and unknown and seamless travel between the two. This continuous space, aims to make its inhabitants the most vulnerable to the extent that even language can’t save them. They are stripped to the core, to an uncertainty of the world that lets them experience the ambiguity of
language by turning a song into sound/melody with no words, no bias and no judgement in between. Such ambiguity is reflected not only in language but in love and it reflects our own subjectivity: Something we are so certain about? Or are we? He puts actuality in the core of this discovery. Actuality becomes the core question that will affect our answers to the question about love, language and our own existence or perception of the world.

On the first single AROHA (Love in Maori language) he explores this ambiguity further. The video to this single is a lyrics video, the sounds spelled out with an alphabet that we are so familiar with but they don’t mean anything. He wants the listener to ask themselves, what is the meaning of sound? AROHA tries to divert the attention from semantic values and makes one understand about their grasp of words and melodies without meaning but an essence of common sense.
