Back in 2007-2009, way before KLMBRNG was even a real thing, there was arthaus*. Basically my first foray into electronic music. There was a bunch of other songs before this 3-song EP, but alas it was lost in the great collapse of Multiply.com
, which just goes to show how old this is.
The homies in QED Records, where this was first released back in '09, had this to say about it:
"Both arthaus* and K▼L▲M†††B▲R▲NG are musical projects of Tomi Uysingco, who is first and foremost an artist. Music is visual art is expression is propaganda.
As a member of the PKi! Collective of independent Philippine musicians, he is all over the web in various guises and shapes, and as members of around 50 other bands and home-brewed music and art projects. We suggest you find and collect all variants to understand the complete picture.
Sometimes all that’s needed to get to places you’ve never seen is a soundtrack consisting of abstract melodic ambient music by the likes of an artist such as arthaus*. Going Places is a 3-song EP of somber ambient that uses patterns to draw you into robotic lands of mystery and angst.
File under: ambient, abstract, motifs, downtempo"
QED Records, one of the first electronic music collectives in the Philippines, also released a KLMBRNG primer called Albularyo Prime - consisting of 2 songs that came from the Demo/EP and another 3 from the album K▲B▲B▲L▲GH▲N: qedrecords.wordpress.com/2012/02/12/qd-4268-kulambarang-albularyo-prime/
