"I humbly adore the acts of the Most High, Who has given to the synthesizer what is better than a soul, so that, when it plays, the men are silent. And their hands cover their veils to hide their emotions. The troubles of life were pushing me into the tomb, but thanks to the synthesizer, God has given me back my life."

EL-P ON MEOW THE JEWELS

Under The Radar: How are you preparing for the possibility of having to remake the album using cat noises?

EL-P: I’m going to various shelters, talking and having conversations with different cats. I’m trying to understand what sort of caliber of talent is out there. Ultimately I hope to sit down with a couple of notable cats in my neighbourhood and pick their brain musically. I think this is going to be a real collaboration between myself and a couple of really talented cats. I’m excited about the possibilities. If everything goes well, I’ll be taking about thirty cats on the road with us. A “catestra” if you will?

SPACEAPE ON THE BLACK SUN ALBUM [WITH KODE9]

"We imagined a place were people, places, objects looked familiar but were clearly not as we know it. A terrain scorched by the sun, half built buildings on water, neon streets everywhere, really incalculable stuff. A place that breathed a different atmosphere; had different rules; politics; desires; religions; a different light to our own. A place were continuous treatments are needed to survive, all the while changing you into something other. All this played out under a black sun."

R.I.P Spaceape.
