NKT presents Patterns Of Instability, a work of freeform experimental electronic music that moves through dense noise textures, visceral sound design, and time-stopping ambient suites. Unfolding over 45 minutes, the new Nokuit album is an absorbing soundtrack probing the pervasive bewilderment of society. It's a relentless journey where blurred melodies and abrasive soundscapes unsettle any human's most buried dissatisfactions and inner rebellions. Swirling drones become a sonic lens which drifts and roams through the currents and threads within the contemporary landscape. Mingling amongst the town square demonstration, flipped upside-down through the cameras into the news media rooms and editing suites, dragged up into helicopters looking down into streets and homes, then bounced across the globe by satellites floating in the atmosphere. Spam bots and malware, encryption data, analysis of YouTube uploads and text messages. Rather than focusing in on any specific geographical event, Patterns Of Instability takes a wide-screen approach to the contemporary age of discontent and digs deep into timeless feelings of frustration. Expanding the peculiar set of expressive tools built over precursor works Analysis Paralysis (2016) and Reality Disappears After Waking (2016), here Nokuit's music reaches its most defined and highly evolved form yet. This is an observation on how humans deal with and perceive reality -- whether or not we are in control of it -- and the level of acceptance for the constant brainwashing that affects every life. Each time Nokuit's music faces the struggles from different angles and in Patterns Of Instability it zooms in on collective, political, and individual battlefields.
