“One of the latest in the Mort Aux Vaches series of discs recorded at the VPRO studios. Roger Rotor has been involved in various projects of electronic music since the 80s (Bloodstar, Myiase and Rotor Syndrom among others), from grind/noise to industrial techno, characterised by their hypnotic rhythms
and improvised manipulations. Without the use of sampling or digital sequencing, Rotor (synths, rhythm, tapes, effects) is joined on this recording by Rolf Brunner (car, synths, tapes). The first piece starts things off in a more experimental vein. Bizarre sounds, like a heavily processed guitar moving about restlessly, mingle with strange manipulations that buzz around like flies, first chaotically then finally locking into a slow, complex rhythm. A dark drone underscores the surface, indicating the dark mood which dominates the music on this disc. The second piece unfolds slowly, and in the thick of a dense atmosphere comes a developing and infectious minimal techno rhythm that builds in intensity. The third and final track (these are all long pieces, with a total run time of just over 45 minutes) is the most energetic on the disc. A strong, hypnotic, industrial techno rhythm takes you right through to the end, scarred by various tape manipulations, dark atmospheres and all manner of strange cut-up sounds. In all, Rotor achieves an intriguing balance of atmosphere and rhythm in these live recordings, and I've enjoyed this record more and more with repeated listening.
Another milestone in the post-industrial landscape. Nicely done.” [Richard di Santo/ incursion]
