Senyawa's chemical compound

Indonesian experimental metal at this year's OBEY



“A literal translation of the word senyawa would be 'chemical compound'. It's used to describe when two or more different elements combine and create something new. In this case it is my partner Wukir Suryadi and I who are the two different chemical elements. He stands for nature—which is represented by his bamboo instrument—and I represent the human. Senyawa is all about the relationship between man and nature.” Rully Shabara Herman, “A Volcanic Talent: Senyawa Interviewed” by John Doran, The Quietus.
