Killick Hinds & Álvaro Domene

Hocket Pulsar

Iluso Records is proud to present Hocket Pulsar, the first long-form aural collaboration between Domene and Hinds, on which clouds of pitches, harmonies, and metallic strata quake like veering tectonic plates, and guitar strings gleam with overtones and hypnotic pulsations

Avant-guitar pioneer Henry Kaiser was the common link between Athens (Georgia) based Killick Hinds and Kingston (New York) based Álvaro Domene

Having worked with both artists in different contexts, Kaiser suggested the two connect for potential collaboration based on similar interests and aesthetic sensibilities. The simpatico was immediate as manifested in their first piece together, the audiovisual composition titled "Uplift" (link ) at the end of October 2020. 

After finishing that first joint effort, the two decided to pursue the documentation of a duo album that would take inspiration from natural phenomena such as precipitation events, fauna and flora sonorities, and also meditation and shamanistic rituals, on which sound can turn into an overwhelming but healing physical experience where it's no longer music as entertainment but the entrance to another dimension of perception and state of consciousness. 

Grab a good set of headphones and enjoy the experience.
