I’ve ought to ask, Mr. Jansen, what direction were you geared towards with ‘Kinoapparatom’? Were you aiming for a certain target with the album? Laying myself to sleep with it was rather adventurous of me, to say the least.

The music was composed as a soundtrack to a silent Russian art movie by Vertov. If you’ve seen it you might understand the way in which it connects with these visuals. Although they are quite innocent (in a propagandist way) we attempted to suggest a more sinister, subversive quality, to create a sort of subtext that certainly wouldn’t have been present in the original content. This was our way of reinterpreting the visuals, transforming them into something more ethereal and ‘Kafkaesque’ at times. It’s certainly not easy listening and I hope it didn’t induce any nightmares.
