AHRKH is the solo project of A.P Macarte (current member of Salford noise collective GNOD, and former member of heavyweights Manatees), using modular synthesiser, field recordings and voice paired with video, live visual manipulations and collaborations, to explore the relationship between sound and vision and their ability to create altered states of consciousness in an attempt to touch the intangible within the human soul.
Informed by the artists' own Mediation practice, Eastern philosophies, Drone, Minimalism, ambient sounds, and Sufi and sound healing teachings, AHRKH creates what Boomkat describe as “Slow Burning Vocal Loops and Drone manipulations, scoping internal panoramas of brooding rain cloud tones, coruscating half-lit amplifier worship and midnight devotionals.”
