Five years on from the initial sighting, we are revisited by R. Karim's Object of Unknown Provenance. Remastered by Sam Annand, and with new artwork by Tommy Brentall.

OOUP is a selection of music from the archives of R. Karim, written for film, theatre and his own enjoyment. Karim's view is panoramic yet hyper-detailed - taking in elated cloudways and microscopically fractal terrain. Born digitally, but crackling with a weird sentience. Cold and warm. Tender vocals buried beneath painfully EQ'd, hiccupping breaks. VSTs self-chain, chatter and threaten to rip themselves apart like a centrifuge. OST to the Neuromancer film that never was.
