pandemonium drone | Czechia

ČRNÁ ZEM (formely BLACK HIGHWAY) is a bicephalous live project that joined the idea of creation of the labyrinthine soundwave emission element which melting down both conceptual and impromptu procedures that are objectified into one solid synergetic organ. ČRNÁ ZEM sound is assisted by many instrumentations (trumpet, guitar, bass guitar, violin, voice) whose role is alternatively metabolised, collapsed or even vaporised. The sound also employs many non-instrumental sources, industrial stages & rough field recordings. ČRNÁ ZEM grows out of the garden of drone, dark ambient, industrial and noise, releaving from the gravity of formal bondages and ties into outspoken vitality.

ČRNÁ ZEM stands also behind the PHUTURE UNKNOWN project, a little independent collective dedicated to experimentation with mind resorts representing yeastiness of aural, visual and other possible sensual processings that are manufactured and transmitted via our joint public ventures. PHUTURE UNKNOWN is also an anchor for many other activities by its members, focusing and managing sound, design, photography, videoart and writing.

Both ČRNÁ ZEM and PHUTURE UNKNOWN initiatives run on independency and self-maintained principles sharing several autonomous backgrounds. The attitude of self-sustainability is omnipresent, consolidating item which represent our real life basis.
