RAMZi – For Haku – COMMEND See

CS Front NB

RAMZi’s world exists just outside the corner of your eye. It is a land of look behind; possible to reach, impossible to return. Phoebe Guillemot is the guardian of this world. The fearless, intuitive heroine whose arsenal of melted rhythms and mutant song lines exude from her armour.

Guillemot’s past releases mapped this world, RAMZi guiding the endlessly interpretable landscape with her warped, dubbed-out tribal dance music. The effect was ecstatic, combative, and tactical. For Haku, the next installment in the ongoing RAMZi adventure game, delves more into the mythology surrounding this mossy culture.

Step through her world’s portal with “OO” below:

For Haku is the first entry in the Commend See series, released in conjunction with Strange Fires, an installation by artist Jessica Hans. An artist edition of six unique LPs will be available at the opening, alongside a cassette edition of For Haku also available online to those that can’t attend. Strange Fires opens at Commend on April 21 and is on view through May 12, 2016.
