about

Thomas Edison believed “to invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk” a notion many creative minds can relate to. Mesak embraces these ideas by writing music in a very live fashion, putting aside the need for meticulous compositional structures and over-editing to focus on exploring the raw ideas consistent in improvisational theory. The album howto readme illustrates the dynamic assortment of highly textured synthetics in relation to unfamiliar sequences and aggressive tonal variations. Providing a somewhat eerie and supernatural experience riddled with subjective intent.

Since his last full length LP (school of mesak, harmönia 2010) Mesak has worked on several project ranging from electro funk trio BMMB to the caucasian rap battle fusion of Ya Tosiba. Perhaps most of all Mesak has been spending most of his time performing live over the past few years: solo and group performances at festivals and clubs around europe, all culminating in a 2 weeks tour in China at the end of 2013. Right after returning from Asia, he moved his studio to a new location and started working on new material. The album howto readme is his first album to feature vocal tracks, working with Finnish rapper Claws Casteau and Turkish mc Ethnique Punch. Half a year later the album was ready.
