Leif Elggren - Live in London - 20:11
Live concert as a part of the xxxxx23, Limehouse Town Hall, London, March 23rd, 2006.
"This basic sound material was recorded in my biological mother's uterus with my not-yet developed teeth used as a fundamental and simple recording device a few days before my birth. This sound material was kept recorded and hidden until recently inside one of my wisdom teeth, but has now been brought to daylight and exposure."

Digipac design and photography by Jon Wozencroft
51:00 with 8 Tracks, all untitled
Fertile is KK NULL's first album for Touch, following his collaboration with Chris Watson and z'ev [Number One - Tone 24, 2005], which boomkat called "moving and atmospheric", and The Wire wrote "a complex dramatic work from a strict economy of means".
KK NULL (real name KAZUYUKI KISHINO) was born in Tokyo, Japan. Composer, guitarist, singer, mastermind of ZENI GEVA and electronic wizard. One of the top names in Japanese noise music and in a wider context, one of the great cult artists in experimental music since the early 80's.
