Boban Ristevski & Zumaia - 00:52:22
Artwork by ZUMAIA
Few of the music projects of Boban Ristevski are concentrated and based on exploring mostly the ambient / drone and industrial / noise related kinds of music. With elements of minimalism / improvisation / abstraction…
The music is balanced between the more structured forms and the improvised approach to the music.
He’s also writing some kind of essays, and translating from english to macedonian.
So far – he has fully translated one book : in search of P.D Ouspensky ( the genius in the shadow of Gurdjieff ) from the contemporary american esoteric author Gary Lachman.
It’s waiting to be published.
ZUMAIA is a french solo project, a mix of dark ambient, experimental and electro-industrial music inspired by declining western industrial society, Asian spirituality and animist rituals.
After leaving his first band in 1988 ( new wave / gothic ) he joined an industrial rock band in the early 90’s and disappeared for over 20 years.
The first tracks composed by ZUMAIA were recorded in 1989.
Initially, Kalamine was a side project of Zumaia, but it did not turn out quite as expected and became Kalamine Records in February 2019.
