Rrose - Hymn to Moisture

Recommended Posts

https://eaux.ro/album/hymn-to-moisture

“Hymn to Moisture” explores embodiment in natural phenomena by playing with microtonal and unstable tunings, shifting overtones, and integrated modulations that make it difficult to separate tone from noise. Evoking wind, water, rock, and flesh, the album occupies multiple spaces simultaneously: abrasive and tranquil, propulsive and meditative, familiar and alien. It shows an equal reverence for techno pioneers such as Jeff Mills, Pan Sonic, and Plastikman as it does for composers such as Eliane Radigue, Laurie Spiegel, and Phill Niblock. “Hymn to Moisture” is Rrose’s first solo album, and it unfolds with the scrupulous care and patience that defines all of Rrose’s auditory experiments. The album marks the artist’s most refined work to date. 

Since its inception in 2011, the Rrose project has spawned over a dozen vinyl EPs on Sandwell District, Stroboscopic Artefacts, Infrastructure, and their own Eaux label as well as three collaborative albums with Bob Ostertag (on Buchla 200E modular synthesizer), Charlemagne Palestine (for two pianos), and Lucy (as Lotus Eater) respectively. A fourth album-length project on Seattle’s Further Records saw Rrose reinterpreting and extending James Tenney’s monolithic 1971 piece “Having Never Written a Note for Percussion” for solo gong. “Hymn to Moisture” is Rrose's first solo album of original material.

 

Instabuy.

Damn yes.

Was listening back to the Rrose EPs last week and wondered when the next new one would be out.


An album is even better news

This. Huge, huge, huge fan of the EPs (and of the pré-Rrose era as well).

And it’s out. I’ve had a promo copy for a few weeks and have listened to it on repeat since then : proper grower and strong AOTY contender.

Instanay. Sounds kinda 2011, and I'm just so over this type of sound.

Microtonal madness! Rrose is one of the few living legends in this world where the dancefloor meets true avantgardism.

Yes, have listened to this multiple times now. I really like how effortlessly it alternates between techno dub and drone and how there is no cheese at all. In fact I have binged almost all Rrose records since I found out about her two days ago

All the cheese went into the liner notes. :emotawesomepm9:

A few times ago, I picked all the cuts which for me are the best, and made a compilation. Here's the result:

Anyway, this not includes any track from the album yet.
