Songs For Healing by Kosmonaut aka Patrick Park was inspired by and dedicated to his daughter who was diagnosed with Leukaemia last year. The synth soundscape is undeniably intense but also at times dusted with beautiful flourishes. Park has added tribal elements and noise to his usual brand of Berlin School synth music and progressive electronics. Cassette tape on These Are Not Records.

8/10 Laurie Staff review, 08 December 2016

Songs for Healing is a certain Mr Kosmonaut Man asking the stars for some help in healing his daughter, who recently got leukemia and is being saved by the best dad in the world, making the most difficult music in the world (possibly) to do so. This is the second thing I’ve seen in her benefit from Kosmo, so I think he knows what he’s doing.

Every time I see the name Kosmonaut I always think deep kosmische kraut psych synth music. Lots of fizzy held synth chords, lots of echo, lots of stupid noodling. But it’s always surprising when a brilliant fuzzy wall of textured sampling madness enters my ear cans, making the majority of ‘cosmic’ music look completely earthly in comparison. It’s out there, but doesn’t fall into most of the cliches of out-there electronic music, featuring fragile crumbly textures, dense fuzzed-out melodies, and even some quietly rhythmic elements. Oh, and some totally overwhelming dissonance too, but at least that’s reserved for a few choice moments. Very good tape.

If you’re interested, his daughter has a blog where she just chats and stuff, eventually confronting the meaning of life in this little excerpt I’ll leave you with: “Then’s there’s my big life question hmm … that’s a toughie I’ve got to say it’s What’s the meaning of life? So that’s it Bye for now!” - Amazing.
