Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever)'s avatar View Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever)'s profile Favoriting

A live, improvised sound collage experiment, going back 28 years, weaving mesmerizing new soundscapes from found and collected materials right in the present moment.
Pop music, speeches, live phone calls and spontaneous monologues become ambient loopy layered threads riding the liminal spaces between waking and dreaming. [On hiatus.] (Visit homepage.)

i literally fell asleep listening to this episode again a couple nights ago. i know there's a huge archive of episodes that i'll inevitably get through, but for now this one is very important to me. i've listened to it all the way through at least three times now. <3 thank you, ken.

Thank you! It makes me nervously eager to find out what will come out in a new episode. "Surely, it couldn't be that good again." But so often, new inspiration/channeling seems to arise again. Will it be so next week??

gloomsday (Michelle):

i know it will be so. :) i've found beautiful gems in every single episode i've listened to thus far.
