Comment: undoubtedly this 4-notch issue provides a peculiar listening experience because of being linearly built up and also consisting of minimal changes throughout the course of 4 tracks, three of them are up to 14 minutes each on their own. And one of the tracks clocks in at a nearby 2 minute in contrast. However, I could not recognise it to be up to more than 40 minutes in total. I perceived it to be remarkably shorter though having no idea of how lengthy it used to be in fact. Furthermore, I have checked out to convince myself to have listened to an album consisting of more than one track. It is an intriguing listening experience because of enjoying primitive and complex progressions at the same time. More profoundly, the progressions which may seem primitive at the first glance are enough complex and astute at the second one. You do meet tricky electronic effects, repetitive enchantment, profound ambient layers and watery chord meltdowns. I guess the artist is influenced by such visual artists as Salvador Dali. Most of the course seems to have been transforming while doing violently away with its previous shape. With regard to a tongue-in-cheek attitude it at times turns into a slight dadaist flicker. However, ultimately the release is a surreal appearance. rr.gross is a composer and improviser from the Big Apple who has released it on his own imprint Suspicious Sound.
