Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.

This Bjork (that is, Kristin Bjork Kristiansdottir), too, comes from Iceland. After experiences in the Kitchen Motors collective and in Big and Brútal, she’s now going solo with the Kira Kira moniker. Her
electronica is very delicate, diluted, cut over sensitive clicks and glitches and equally fragile vocal parts. Abstract sounds, gentle yet disquieting, which evoke digital and oblique toy-melodies and ingenuous finely built elaborations. This is definitely an interesting debut, full of vivid abstractions that reverberate abstrusely in a way reminiscent of pop tensions.
