    Martin became aware of KMRU “watching the short 2020 documentary Under the Bridge,” according to a press release. “Which, aside from immediately finding Joseph’s approach to sound and music so instantly impressive, I also found his spoken voice possessed a captivating, lilting, tonal quality, with his soft-spoken accent.”

    “The album originated from an exploration of a text I wrote during my sound art studies, delving into the complexities of Otherness,” Kamaru explained. “The project served as a response to Audre Lorde’s idea that differences should be embraced as a dynamic force within humanity, rather than a perceived threat.”
