Boomkat Product Review:
Rrose reprises his working relationship with august sound artist Bob Ostertag on a powerful maiden release for his Eaux label. A-side features Ostertag's 1977 recording of Buchla 200, tape delay, flute and violin at Oberlin Conservatory: an ethereal missive assembled from quivering microtonal drones, desolate ship's whistle notes and fog horn blasts peppered with alien modular twitches. B-side, from behind his mask of anonymity Rrose offers two revisions: 'The Surgeon General (No Child Left Behind)' dissolves original elements into a dense, roiling Techno rhythm primed for the depths of the night, while 'The Surgeon General (Her Insides Laid Bare)' boils it down to the molecular level, homing in on slithering tones, clanking electro-acoustic sonorities and expansive bass drones.
