R.O.T. – “L’ecurie” – [(K-RAA-K)3]

Max Level   2/28/2011   12-inch, A Library

Four sound constructions, ranging from four to nineteen minutes in length, from this semi-mysterious Belgian collective. What you’re going to get here are drones, rattles, hums, pulses, jingly noises, sliding notes, and various rumbling layered things. I have no idea how many people were involved –I did try to find out, but the R.O.T. gang seems to thrive on secrecy– or how they made about 90% of the sounds heard here, but I get the feeling that we’re hearing mostly acoustic instruments treated/processed in various ways. And I think these are all improvisations played live. Quietly intense.
