Martin Rev ‎– Demolition 9 - New Vinyl 2017 Atlas Realisations Pressing - Electronic / Experimental

$24.99

Street Date: 7/28/17

Demolition 9 is New York electronic music pioneer Martin Rev's ninth solo album, and first new material since 2009. Comprised of 34 wildly divergent vignettes -- only one of which reaches three minutes in length -- he describes it as autobiographical ''yearning for joy and the unattainable perfection of the artistic ideal.'' The record spans a lifetime's worth of moods and musings, encompassing fragments of Rev's varied passions accrued across his nearly half-century long career. From violent percussion experiments to neo-classical reveries to noir-sleaze abstractions and beyond, Demolition 9 offers a radically non-linear spelunk through the dreams and distractions of one of the 20th century's most influential sonic iconoclasts. In the words of legendary producer and musician Craig Leon, whose revived imprint Atlas Réalisations will release the album, ''The recording provides us with a unique glimpse into the artistic mindset of this unique musician.''
