Strom Varx ‘A Cogent Heavy High-Technology Works Since Strom Varx’ (11)


With A Cogent Heavy High-Technology Works Paris-based artist Strom Varx continues his research into seismic noise dynamics and delicate stillness, unleashing over 60 minutes of digital craftsmanship. In his own words “the result is a kind of electronic music that is perennial, futuristic, sensible, provocative and profoundly romantic; music that does not fit to any particular groupings”. Fragments of Karkowskian aggression encounter sections that bring to mind Kevin Drumm’s latest efforts in quietness.

1st edition of 100 copies (June 2014): black cd-r in black envelope, housed in custom made carton sleeves.
