Originally released in 2015. Steeped in improvisational practice and known for their visceral live performances, the pair's sound combines Javanese folk and ritual music with metal and psychedelic influences. Rully Shabara's extended vocal techniques arc from guttural droning to frenetic chants and upper-register ululations, while Wukir Suryadi supplies dynamic instrumenta-tion using the bambuwukir, an amplified bamboo zither of his own invention. Menjadi (meaning 'to become') follows from the redose-3 containing "Di Kala Sudah" (reworked by Buchla synth master Charles Cohen) and is the first in a series of new Morphine releases produced by Rabih Beaini and set to arrive over the next year, with artwork by Nathalie Du Pasquier, curated and designed by Tankboys.
