Boomkat Product Review:
One of Hospital Productions’ key players commits a staggering corpus of new, unreleased work to the label’s 20th anniversary festivities with Standstill, adding to his illustrious string of label highlights from the last five years such as American Babylon  and Industriale Illuminato . By some distance the quietest, most contemplative character on the label, Lussuria’s exquisite atmospheric sensitivity and ritualistic patience is in full effect across this breathtaking boxset.
Where other, more orthodox noise makers on Hospital Productions are all about exothermic reaction and violence, Lussuria applies a sort of endothermic induction with the poised, relative stasis of Standstill working like a series of seductive glances caught in a well cut jewel, rather than any sort of staring match or outright violenze.
If pushed to pick any from this stunning run of new Hospital Productions, the 8-tape Standstill collection is definitely one that we’ll be devoting time to in the sanctity of our personal listening space for a long time to come.
