Album Review

Reviewed 2011-01-18 
Modern, minimalist, academic experimental electronic by Mr. Rothkamm. Limiting the release to 333 copies, clocking in at 33’33,” citing Immanual Kant, and introducing his Tetralogy, Rothkamm is back to his abstract concepts. This one is about a spectral study of a Manhattan spirit. Erratic, wandering attacks of analog synths, bleeping frequencies, and creepy reverberations alongside plenty of negative space. This should be the soundtrack to one of those stupid ghost hunter tv shows . Maybe this is more direct than some of his other works, because it is less atonal, but it is still difficult. For fans of synesthesia, Steve Reich, Oneohtrix Point Never, and the Historical CD of Digital Sound Synthesis.

1. Spluttering rapid-fire electrobuzz, swirling synth sprawl, uneven bursts of white noise. (7:04)
2. Warbly, bent electro tones and noise. (9:21)
3. Grumbly underlayers, screechy, jilting sheets of noise, more intense, percussive electro finish. (7:34)
4. Squiggly Space Mountain modulating pitch, off-kilter laser beams through Sagittarius. (5:20)
5. Curvy deeper tones, darker, creepy, hollow feel, lose remnants of a tune come in late and ends on an eerie drone. (4:13)
