'Ivory' is the third solo-record by Vienna-based 'soundworker' Peter Kutin. The guitar is the
instrument that creates / triggers most of the sound we can hear on this record, real-time
transformed by Peter's laptop. Only for three tracks other instruments were used additionally: a
viola, a korg synth and a double bass, the latter being played by Matija Schellander on the
sparkling 'after the plague' (#4).
'Ivory' developed while Kutin was writing music for old silent movies for the Austrian film-
archive. Somehow one can still hear the filmscore, the cinematographic idea within the music. The
album offers sounds that will thrill our ears, allows journeys through different sonic spaces, creates
pictures inside the listeners head; 'world without end' might be the only track that almost reaches
the format of a 'pop-track', while most of the other tracks want and need you to listen closer. The
minimal final anthem 'lonesome monster' seems to move only in its spectrum, not in metrum. The
partial-tunes sing the song. A piece of music that stretches time, positioning itself somewhere
besides Stars of the Lid's orchestral style.
Peter Kutin's works range from modern compositions / installations presented in neat gallery
places to live-noise performances in dirty clubspaces. At solo live performances as 'Kutin', he
creates impressive, sparkling sonic glooms, dense soundscapes and walls of sound mainly using
guitar and laptop.
Besides his activities as solo musician, he founded the band 'dirac' that released acclaimed records
on labels such as Spekk (Japan), U-Cover (Belgium) and Valeot. His solo works were released on
U-Cover and Karate-Joe (Austria) so far. He further works on the projects 'Mimu', Kutin-Roisz
(with Billy Roisz) and composed music for theater-companies such as 'God's Entertainment' or for
the Austrian film-archive as well as for various film-directors.
Kutin worked and collaborated with artists like Billy Roisz, Dieb13, Heribert Friedl, Taku Unami,
Kazuhisha Uchihashi, Manuel Knapp, Martin Siewert, Glim (Andreas Berger) and many more.
