Gong Splash Midi Midi
Super Heavy Metal
Kim Åge Furuhaug makes music by banging bits of metal. As Super Heavy Metal, he takes the humble cymbal and reproduces the sounds it makes until he creates a virtual orchestra. On ‘Gong Splash Midi Midi’ – Super Heavy Metal’s second album, following the startling debut ‘Music for Cymbals’ from 2016 – this treatment has been taken several stages further. Working with producer/engineer Emil Nikolaisen and sound-processor Ådne Meisfjord. The album is mixed by Anders Bjelland-who has collaborated with Furuhaug from the beginning of the Super Heavy Metal project. The cymbals have been linked to various synths and effects units to form a kind of electronic variant to John Cage’s invention of the prepared piano.
