Supernova Remnants

Supernova Remnants Cover

Welcome to Other Matter's first free kraut noise interstellar joourney on Mahorka! The band consists of:

Michel Kristof: electric guitar, electric esraj, sitar. Born 1966. Solo work on guitars and electrified indian instruments as MKF's Approach. Since 2010 in free jazz godfather Sonny Simmons' Moksha Samnyasin with Thomas Bellier (Blaak Heat Shujaa) and Sébastien Bismuth (Abrahma). Guest appearances with Ehécatl.

Julien Palomo: synthesizers, organ, piano, tape manipulations. Born 1978. Producer for Improvising Beings (Sonny Simmons, Francois Tusques, Alan Silva, Sabu Toyozumi, Itaru Oki, Giuseppi Logan...). Also performing in post-pop group Babooszchka.

Together as Other Matter since 2011, they are wandering the dreary toxic spaces above, witnessing to the weakness of the human mind confronted with, and ultimately defeated by, the darkness, all darkness.

A supernova remnant (SNR) is the structure resulting from the explosion of a star in a supernova. The supernova remnant is bounded by an expanding shock wave, and consists of ejected material expanding from the explosion, and the interstellar material it sweeps up and shocks along the way.

There are two common routes to a supernova: either a massive star may run out of fuel, ceasing to generate fusion energy in its core, and collapsing inward under the force of its own gravity to form a neutron star or a black hole; or a white dwarf star may accumulate (accrete) material from a companion star until it reaches a critical mass and undergoes a thermonuclear explosion.
