Intro & Info

An Experimental / Avant-Garde side project for two prolific musicians;-

Norwegian soundtrack composer Kaada and Faith No More frontman Mike Patton.

Their band draws on a joint love of film music, with Patton building on his experiences with his band Fantômas, who paid an inimitable tribute to horror film scores with their album The Director's Cut, but Kaada/Patton is a sedate affair compared to Patton's noisier excursions.
