Kenneth Kirschner is a composer and sound artist from Brooklyn, New York. His oeuvre, which he describes as 'being about recording', uses classically-tinged acoustic sources, electronically processed sounds and silence.
MM/DD/YY is the biggest overview of his work so far and part of the Imperfect Forms multimedia project. Spreading across three volumes, it traces his footprints as an artist from 1999-2014, featuring drone/ambient pieces next to rhythmically-agitated tracks, neoclassical compositions and the quiet, slow-paced grand scale works he has become known for.
Whereas the second and third installment were personally selected by the composer, volume 1 contains a selection by tokafi's Tobias Fischer focusing on shorter, more accessible pieces offering a new perspective on Kirschner's approach.

Let's put it this way- this is simply one of our favourite works ever!...A collection of variations on a theme that drift by, perfuming the air, or that stop a moment to whisper you a story. Evocative in its sparse beauty, We are sure this will been the permanent playlist always, right alongside Arvo Part's "Alina" and offthesky's "Silent went the Sea" ....ss/tm/am editions vaché
