Kevin Gan Yuen • “Uncloaked Infinite”
Utech Records • Ambient • USA • Jun 2017
“Uncloaked Infinite is the debut solo album from Oakland, California-based multi-disciplinarian Kevin Gan Yuen, better known as the founding member of blackened noise metal luminaries Sutekh Hexen and the design studio viraloptic.com.
This focused body of work examines the concept of the transitory in nature. Throughout the work, the cycles of life/death/rebirth shapeshift, arcing into alternative frameworks and branching toward both rift and sky. A document of the losses and victories of a personal era, the album faces the passage of life and seeks to distill it to blistering radiance. It contemplates and reimagines mortality. To wonder, to wander, and to renew is fundamental to the Uncloaked Infinite.”
