iamamiwhoami: "kin"

Just when I thought the iamamiwhoami /Jonna Lee project had faded away, they relase a new, tantalizingly short clip. Just today, February 1, 2012, "kin" was posted to their YouTube channel.

The subtitle of the thirty seven second piece is "20120611"--June 11th, 2012. Many are supposing this is the next live iamamiwhoami concert but I don't find anything on-line to support or refute this.

Yesterday, announced the February 15th release of a new iamamiwhoami single called "sever." A thirty-second sample plays a ballad-type song, bearing no resemblance to "kin."

This new clip seems like it comes from the enigmatic "number series" when iamamiwhoami first started posting to YouTube. It is maddeningly short but already full of symbolism and clues. A cork bulletin board in an outdoor glass case. Sea birds are reflected in the glass which is also covered with guano. On the bulletin board is tacked a single white piece of paper, echoing the white paper we have seen so much of in the series.

We'll just have to wait and see where this new journey takes us.
