    Never content to remain static, electronic duo HYENAZ are creatures with their skin peeled
    off; their music is the juice that flows from their excoriated body. HYENAZ (Mad Kate & XIL)
    are passionate about electronic music and performance as a tool of political and personal
    transformation. Now bursting forth with their second album, the mystical and
    fierce CRITICAL MAGIC 비평적 마술, Hyenaz engage postmodern spirituality and Korean
    cut/ups to create a work which is sonically new: the electronic dance album as a
    singular cohesive spell.

about

On the mystifying and fierce CRITICAL MAGIC 비평적 마술, HYENAZ followed a pattern set in their earlier works of beginning not with an eye for genre or some other music industry straightjacket, but with a set of personal, political and artistic commitments that they desired to enact and live up to.

“Our goal,” they explain “was to concoct a singular cohesive spell to disrupt the authoritarian power networks that deeply structure our lives and our sense of our selves.”

Ranging widely across electronc musical genre, CRITICAL MAGIC 비평적 마술 commands a torrent of incantations, builds to a height of gnosis, and ends in a reality transformed. The sonic elements of the album are comprised of dedicated experiments in synthesis and intensive field recordings, arranged into diverse sonic atmospheres.
