Jacques Kustod is project created by Andrej Kabal in 2010, strongly influenced by cosmic sound of kraut, techno, industrial electroacoustic experimentation and science fiction topics. Through its 7 year long existence, project released EP’s on labels such as Chernobyl Musick or Exitab. I am Deranged is collection of tracks made in surroundings of Petržalka,Andrej’s current residence. Its desolated, concrete themed mood strongly influenced creation of tracks for this album. Despite these on the first look unpleasing factors, album is hommage to very specific aspects of this area which can be found after deep observation, and have their unique genius loci that can be really enjoyable. Creating entire album in tiny room located in middle of this area had strong impact on everything
Temporary escape from everyday routine, liberation through hearing
combined with message of Scanner Darkly. I am Deranged represents personal developement that was marked by both of these aspect, trying to use them to create relief through psychedelic sound compositions with raw, yet sometimes fragile and pleasing edge.

thanks to everyone who supported me in this. you know who you are.
This live album in a great way can create curious, immersive and intriguing dreams in the minds of listeners. Through a combination of degraded tape loops, drones, noise and field recordings The House in the Woods leads us into situations and places recognisable and familiar but also alien and more like mind images. Great live album :) SILENO
Great Plunderphonics / Glitch action from Dane Law on 8 tracks that deconstruct, manipulate and rearrange music samples into new atmospheric clouds and structures of often melodic sound and intense grooves that hit hard and have an immersive sound which also has lo-fi elements in it :) SILENO
