KiNo biography
Born in 1980 Ankara, Turkey at the same hospital as Joe Strummer to English and Turk parents. Grew up in North London and late teens in Ankara.
Educated in film studies.

Started composing songs as early as 6 years old on electric organ.
He started making short films, he calls cinepoems, editing on 2 vcrs at the age of 14. His poetry predates any other creative expression.

Moved to New York from London in 2001.

Founder of the production company for image, sound and words
MAN EATING SEAS with two subsidiaries: Kinetic Twin films and Man Eating Press for publications.

Founder of the charity organisation Revolution of the Mind connected to the concept MAP OF THE UNIVERSE which aims to construct a super-language for the basis of education with emotional intelligence.

Met Jeff Blenkinsopp at the recording session of Norah Jones for Nublu Records.
And spent the next 2 years in development with the sound wizard in his laboratory making the Map of the Universe.

Multi-instrumentalist, plays all the instruments on the album except drums and horns. Drums played by a friend Brazilian Girl's Aaron Johnston and some percussion by the celebrated New York downtown musician Kenny Wollesen and a good friend Darren Berry who played on Vainglorious (Let's Make Love in London) came specially from London for the occasion.

Horn section formed by Jonathan Haffner, Kirk Knuffke and Mike Williams and English Horn and Oboe by Katie Scheele. The additional voices include the mezzo soprano Nannette Bevelander and the voice from Kudu on Nublu Records Sylvia Gordon (Vainglorious) and Mark Ephrahim (Testimonies).

KiNo engineered, mixed and mastered the record. Every sound is painstakingly created on custom analogue. This project is fully realised by no financial backing except other than the time and love invested by Jeff Blenkinsopp. The record is anticipated to give momentum to KiNo's creative factory Man Eating Seas that engines the international charity organisation REVOLUTION OF THE MIND.

Review by Easy Livin

3 stars Sophisto-pop

I have to confess that I committed the cardinal sin of mistakenly assuming this album to be by a different band. This is not in fact the follow up to the fine 2005 album "Picture" by the UK prog supergroup Kino. This is actually the sole release by Turkish born, USA resident KiNo (note the alternating case).

KiNo plays all the instruments on the album himself with the exception of the rhythm section and guest horns. The music is light in nature, KiNo's high vocals having a deceptively 60's pop flavour. It is though the eclectic nature of the melodies which distinguish the album. Those melodies can at times seem rather infectious, but their constant metamorphosis means that they are difficult to pin down.

The tracks are all short, the longest running to just over 5 minutes. Often, such as on "Won't do" there are overtones of the new wave sounds which would have been developing during the artist's formative years. Another possible influence is the sophisto-pop of bands such as 10cc.

While the styles and sounds are diverse, the album is largely single paced, largely devoid of full on rock songs or softer ballads. This can tend to result in a one dimensional feel, despite the aforementioned diversity. Overall though, a fine first album which shows considerable promise.

Review by clarke2001
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars Interesting album...if there ever was a balance between THE CLASH style punk rock music and progressive rock, well here it is. I actually used this line of comparison half a dozen times, this one is really taking the cake. Why? It indeed sounds like 'London Calling' at the moments, there are more or less direct quotations in bass lines, chords, even lyrics. If you notice that our brainchild KiNo is actually born in the same hospital where Joe Strummer was born, then it couldn't really be a coincidence.

As far as the prog aspect of the music goes, it's omnipresent - if not too impressive - and handcrafted into the new wave-y rolling machine on the surface. Synth bleeps, progressive textures (I like that phrase and I'm using it a lot at present), vocal choirs...and overall flow of a concept album, or at lest a thematic one, and nicely wrapped at the edges at that. Some passages, as well as lyrical passages are repeating themselves through the album. Overall, very nice.

My complaint is actually not uncommon: the album is overbearing a bit, perhaps a bit too long for a more or less linear music, so it kind of drags towards the end. There's not a single breathtaking moment, but on the other hand there's not a single BAD moment neither. Which makes this unit pretty decent. And highly recommended to people who like both THE CLASH and progressive rock!
