Sacramento, CA-based act Genre Peak, the brainchild of musician Martin Birke, has announced the release of its 6th album titled “Gnosis”. Scheduled for release on January 30th, 2024 will offer a journey through dark, cinematic soundscapes. The album is the follow-up to “Psychopathy” (2022).
Birke has crafted eight tracks that explore the expansive theme of knowledge and its acquisition. “Gnosis” features a collaboration with guest composers such as Richard Barbieri of Japan and Porcupine Tree fame, Stephen Sullivan from Nus, and Daniel Panasenko from Sandbox Trio.
Produced by Christopher Scott Cooper for In Code Music, “Gnosis” will be available both as a CD and in digital formats. The release should be available soon from the Genre Peak Bandcamp page.
Martin Birke’s project Genre Peak has been a platform for numerous guest musicians, including Mick Karn, Jon Hassell, Steve Jansen, Richard Barbieri, Matt Malley, Dean Garcia, and others. The project debuted in 2006 with the album “Ends Of The Earth”. And you will probably also know him from Casualty Park whose debut “Clutch” EP opened many doors.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
