KMRU | ISM Frequencies

With KMRU, and Institute for Sound & Music

ISM Frequencies is a quarterly radio show exploring the world of sound for Refuge Worldwide from the Institute for Sound & Music. Each episode the ISM invites artists to create an audio piece that dives into sound and the cultural impact it can have on us and the world around us. Expect found sound, ambient, experimental, field recordings, far reaching electronic music and more, all interwoven into a hour long mix.

The latest contributor is Berlin based sound artist and producer KMRU. His meditative hour of immersive sounds includes the likes of Laraaji, Bendik Giske, Seefeel and some of his own work.

When asked about his mix he said the following: This mix posits an attention to textural elements of sound, featuring drone compositions and tracks that explore varied timbres and textures - reflecting upon the deeper states of perception and awareness that sound portrays; guiding the listener into a freedom for immersion.
