Listening Diary

François Couture, Monsieur Délire, June 5, 2009

Finally, the collaboration between D Kimm and Alexis O’Hara has found its way on record. I saw this duo at FIMAV back in… 2007? 2006? Kimm and O’Hara are two multitalented poets/performer artists/sound artists. O’Hara tends toward derision and psycho-sexual sarcasm over a noise background; Kimm’s work is more nuanced, combining humour and tenderness, depth and pulsion. Together, they brew quite a sonic stew! Intriguing poems, coldish (hence the title) and occasionally trashy sound textures. Very well done.

Very well done.
