More Info

Die zweite in der Beta-Lactam 10-Serie kommt von dem uns unbekannten Komposer RICK REED, der sich hier von einem Mark Rothko Gemlde hat insprieren lassen... herausgekommen sind dabei extrem schleichend-hochfrequente Drones, deren Textur sich langsam verndert, Musik wie gemalt (?) ... eindringlich und etwas unheimlich...
Nr. 2 in the Lactamase-series of 12 records. RICK REEDS compositions are high-pitched, eerie drones that crawl into the room...inspired by a large Rothko-painting located in a chapel in Houston, TX. Highly recommended! The music like the paintings, is almost totally monochromatic. Starting with a single bit of guitar feedback, recorded, then played back into the room with additional bits of feedback added each time, recorded layer by layer until "all the brush strokes were rendered nearly invisible". The end result is not at all like feedback, but more like a huge dark cloud of electronic sound, like a totally bent orchestra with a way out string and flute section hell bent on exploring the nether regions.
