DJ Ka Fu plays his live set in the wilderness

Electronic producer Ka Fu has added to his creative portfolio once again, this time in the form of a live video, set in the extraordinary art park of Nikola-Lenivets in Russia. The video shows Ka Fu set up on a wooden walkway in the wilderness, suspended over a lake. Surrounded by a lush natural landscape, his electronic music beautifully contrasts the environment, in a perfect blend of the organic and digital. Raised in the previously closed Russian military city of Severodvinsk, Ka Fu is a self-confessed global nomad. Addicted to perpetual change, his one constant is music – a place of retreat where he is able to use the endless possibilities of sound to communicate his message to the universe. Always on the move, his music reflects the desire to avoid stagnation at all costs. Deeply inspired by the moody, introspective sound of Depeche Mode, Ka Fu’s ability to convey a message without words draws parallels to the rich ambient atmospheres of Orbital, Autechre, Brian Eno, and Boards of Canada, as well as the textured soundscapes of Com Truise, Plaid, and Øfdream.

He gives some insight into the live video experience:

I played at  5 am, it was a bit cold, dark and foggy, but a beautifully unique atmosphere. I was pleasantly surprised by the amazing acoustics of the place. The locals in the village a few kilometres away could hear the music. Overall it was a perfect experience. Alone with nature. Alone with the music.”
