Senyawa Vinyl, CD & tapes by Senyawa at Norman Records

Show page list »


Who wouldn’t love Senyawa, the duo from Indonesia who combine traditional Indonesian folklore and music with black metal vocals, noise textures, and all manner besides. Sujud is their new record, and features a specially home-built guitar as well as Rully Shabara’s incredible vocals. On Sublime Frequencies.

Calling The New Gods

Vincent Moon is not, in fact, the mutant spawn of The Mighty Boosh’s two protagonists. He’s a filmmaker, and in 2012 he chronicled a journey made by the Indonesian duo Senyawa’s around the Javan city Yogyakarta. This became the short film Calling The New Gods, and its soundtrack is set to wax here by Brussels imprint Okraina Records. Wukir Suyandi proves himself a whizz on several instruments, while singer Rully Shabara has a beautiful voice and a great range.

Indonesian spirits flow from vinyl grooves that run deeper than time itself. Menjadi is an hypnotic piece of tribal rhythms and magical drones, accompanied by near-transcendental vocals. Senyawa’s attempt at a recording to equal their normally energetic live performances will be an experience to say the very least.

Senyawa / Charles Cohen
Charles Cohen / Robert Turman

When I first heard those mind-boggling rediscovered Charles Cohen Buchla Music Easel records put out by Morphosis, I don’t think I could of guessed that the next new material I heard from the reclusive synth improvisor would be a reinterpretation of an Indonesian hardcore band. But it is and it’s amazing. Robert Turman ‘recrafting’ Cohen on the B-side doesn’t do any harm either.
