jmdkm – Start Here

RB063 - jmdkm - Start Here

Since 1994 jmdkm has been active in the arts, particularly in painting, photography and sound.
He has been in a self-centered experimenting mode which has possibly gone into a naive approach.

“Start Here” contains 9 tracks on a scale from playful to noisy and it is all about trying to find out where it aches or not, trying to feel where it hurts so good. Taking an electro-acoustic path, with nothing but a dorky drum kit, 2 cheesy toy keyboards and some stomp boxes.

In a way the sounds are a bit “harsh” but the notion throughout “Start Here” has always been melancholic and somewhat poetic…

Release Date

“Start Here” is a collection of arrangements written in 2007/2008 by jmdkm.
The actual recordings came together in collaboration with Chris Groeneveld (additional guitar, piano, feedback & FX on track 6 & 8).

The recording sessions mostly took place between August 2008 in Seget Gornji, Croatia and January 2009 in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
