Ramirez, Richard – “Slowly Fading Into Perversions” – [Sick Art Products]

Muad'Dib   12/18/2013   A Library, CD

Pioneering, Houston-based noise artist Richard Ramirez is known for his harsh, wall-of-sound, noise sounds. This album is unapologetic in its purism in holding to that aesthetic.

Three tracks of static modulated and filtered from a rumble to a screech. This isn’t mindless or simple, though, far from it. Careful listening reveals thoughtful modulations in tone, dynamics, and textural parameters of the sound showing Ramirez’s masterful control of his instrument.
