COSMICALLY CHARGED DIVINE MISSION
PHOTO ROMAN / EPUB / PDF
First booklet of the photo-roman series, Cosmically Charged Divine Mission, is a novel composed on a series of photographs.
It starts with the introduction of Nublu – legendary music club in the East Village. The place where I started making the multidimensional spectacle OPERA FOR MUTES.
THE PHANTOM BLOKE
EPIC POETRY / OPERA FOR MUTES
OPERA FOR MUTES is the superstructure that contains all of KiNo’s music, imposing an artistic timeline on his life, dividing him into three distinct personas as the creator of the music: the child, the teenager, and the adult.
Phantom Bloke is the second tier, the teenage form of KiNo, succeeding Laser Kid, the child, and preceding the adult Madamless Sir.
Phantom Bloke is the one who embarked on an intellectual journey to become a poet . He understood the world, and particularly the history as multiple films overlapping. He was destined for solitude and destitute. OPERA FOR MUTES is his creation that started as a wormhole into the future. His work remains unpublished, unreleased until now.
This is a live operation. Phantom Bloke will be updated regularly.
POETRY ALBUM / DIGITAL EDITION
Madamless Sir and his glorious intermittent lunacy distilled in a bottle. These poems originate from the period when I was making my debut album MAP OF THE UNIVERSE; the intense learning camp I went under the supervision of my producer Jeff Blenkinsopp who taught me everything about music production and how to exact my message in every fragment, everything I touch. It is in the form of an audiobook which I recited in a cabin lit by a flashlight in the middle of nowhere in Northern California.
POETRY / PAPERBACK / NYC
“Composed on a theme of romantic despair (what better subject for a poet) Automated Roman: Barb Concerto in Unspoken Major Mouth is an automatic journey through a landscape of anguish – the ache brought from rejection by the object of the poet’s desire. It is an epic journey of the reconstruction of the poet’s psyche that along the way composes him to the dismembered Osiris.” — John Farris
The transitional period from Phantom Bloke to Madamless Sir corresponds to the time when I left London and arrived in NY at the turn of the millennium. 911 was going to happen and I was going to fall in love within a couple of weeks. Barb Concerto is a collection of poems that would come into being as my first published book because of the rupture of that romance. The foreword is written by the one and only John Farris, the great American poet and cultural hero. I was privileged by the guidance he showed me in my formative years in the East Village.
