Boomkat product review for:

jim o’rourke - Disengage

Originally released back in 1992, Korm Plastics have seen fit to neuter the eBay extortionists and re-release Jim O'Rourke's 'Disengage' in all its original glory. Recorded with a firm eye on the experimental end of the spectrum, this 2CD set will delight anyone with even a solitary Hafler Trio/Tod Dockstader/Luc Ferrari/Morton Feldman etc. release embedded in their collection, unfurling as it does with the grace of a stretching cat, whilst examining themes which could readily have become overly claustrophobic. An ebbing crucible of electro-acoustic fragments (all obscured through skilful treatments), AM radio, field recordings and anonymous entities, pieces like 'Mere' and 'A Young Person's Guide To Drowning' take an age to develop; but are all the better for it. Overtly influenced by Tzadik's 'Terminal Pharmacy', O'Rourke was there a decade before anyone else. Engage!
