Cummi Flu is the latest persona from ever-changing multi-media illusionist Oliver Doerell. The Brussels-based analog electronics pioneer was the driving force behind previous incarnations Dictaphone and SWOD, and embodies Raz Ohara's Odd Orchestra. With Cummi Flu, Doerell explores his acid-influenced visions of psychedelic forms and frequencies, well versed in downbeat electronics.
The first recordings present a collection of sound collages based on homemade instruments, with self-tuned rubber bands and a bass kalimba as the centerpiece. The resulting tracks are an exploration of otherworldly rhythms with the ebb and flow of a swollen tide.
Cummi Flu creates a sound that is hard to categorize, while also tapping into old feelings of alienation, refuge, and self-exploration.
