When Haare was incepted in 1999, Ilkka Vekka had a very specific vision of what kind of “ultra” harsh noise he wanted to produce. This involved the idea of sitting still and focused while being immersed inside the turbulent eye of a metallic storm; a whirlwind of feedback and junk metal. The seed for Karesansui was planted. But it did not materialize as the exact sounds he wanted was not up to his expectations. The idea of fulfilling the release was subsequently dropped.
After a period of almost 20 years, Karesansui was finally resurrected and reworked again in 2018. The entire album consists of material combining several recordings made between 2018 and 2019. The main sound sources comprise metal junk, microphone feedback and electronics/fx. Be absorbed in a vortex of harsh screeching feedback, hollow resonating echoes and heavy stereo shifting of organic drones.
