Below is a commentary by the label. 

 "Arab-American producer Peter Kirn is an avid electronic musician with interdisciplinary artistic interests, working in themes of modern dance, fashion, clubbing, space exploration, instruments and vocals. Academically trained, he also researches and writes about new tools for music and filmmaking at CDM.link.

Peter Kirn on the album 4Q246 showcases his creative flair for mixing different textures.Added to the Industrial Complexx catalog.Looking back on his releases so far, he's never rested on a set sound, each one being the result of an exploration, and without prior listening it's impossible to predict the style and technique of his albums. turns out to be almost impossible.

Perhaps it's somewhat easier to guess the sonic signature of 4Q246 just because it's been released on a label like Industrial Complexx and has a fairly defined style, but it's the kind of sound he uses on each of his seven tracks. Equally astonishing are the harmonious combinations. Peter Kirn mixes a wide variety of sources, from metallic textures to other organic elements, distorted, abysmal or elaborate rhythmic structures.

4Q246 is an elegy for a prophetic vision, an archaic dance, an opposing duality told in a series of apocalyptic or revelatory musical snippets.

The title, 4Q246, was taken from a fragment of the Apocalypse in Aramaic in the Dead Sea Scrolls found by the Bedouins in the caves of Qumran.Despite attempts to see the work through a primitive Christian filter, what attracted me most was the vivid portrayal of trauma from another era, and the Aramaic word for it, ziqaya. (probably "meteor" or "comet").It is a half-erased prophecy of the future, in its encoding, both cosmological and geopolitical, of our own attempts to divulge the world around us and make meaning out of violence. some are included.

"Arab-American producer Peter Kirn is an avid electronic musician with interests in different artistic disciplines, who has worked in subjects such as modern dance, fashion, clubbing, space exploration, instruments and vocals, trained in composition and musicology, and also researched and written about new tools for music and visual creation on CDM.link.

Peter Kirn joins the Industrial Complexx catalog with 4Q246, an album that showcases his creative prowess in mixing different textures. A review of his previous releases shows that he is not comfortable with a predetermined sound, but that each work is the fruit of exploration, and that it is almost impossible to predict the style and technique of his albums without prior listening.

Perhaps, it is determined somewhat easier to guess the sonic character of 4Q246 simply because it is released on a label like Industrial Complexx, with a quite style, but it is equally surprising with the harmonic combinations he uses in each of its seven tracks, as he bases the sound on multiple frequency alloys, which turns the album into a powerful sonic story. Peter Kirn mixes diverse sources, from metallic textures to other organic elements, distorted, unfathomable or rhythm elaborate structures.

4Q246 is an elegy and an archaic dance for prophetic visions, in all their conflicting dualities, told as a series of apocalyptic or revelatory musical fragments.

The title 4Q246 is taken from the Aramaic Apocalypse fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls, found by a Bedouin in a cave at Qumran. Despite all the attempts to see this through a proto-Christian filter, I was drawn most by its vivid description of the trauma of another age, and against it the Aramaic word "ziqaya" (possibly "meteors" or "comets.") There is some beauty in the unknowability of this fragment. It's a half-erased foretelling of the future, and in its coding some of our own attempts to divine the world around us in both cosmology and geopolitics, to attempt to make sense out of the violence."
