Stefan Römer - ReCoder Sound [Corvo Records 022]

Released via Berlin's Corvo Records label on October 1st, 2k22 is "Recorder Sound", the latest album outing by sound researcher and conceptualist Stefan Römer, a soundtrack for one of his experimental films as well as a new addition to his meta project 'Deconceptualize'. Spread out over twelve tracks and a total of 30 minutes with contributions by famed figures such as Daniel Door, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and others Römer constructs his compositions from both samples taken from the original experimental short film and its main protagonist Reco, her supposed thoughts and thought processes, minimalist electronic additions as well as from precisely chosen and evaluated #irl Field Recordings, for the most part arranged in a dry, cut-up and almost documentary fashion from what seems to be an outsider perspective with the exception of the highly seductive lo-fi SynthPop bang0r "Reco Song", the Clicks'n'Cuts-infused mechanical Post-Industrial Electronica abstractions of "Noise ReCoder" as well as the Fraktus-inspired ElectroPop cut "Sex Practice Is Text Practice" which might move some proper ass on lo-fi friendly underground dancefloors. Probably more accessible for a wider audience in its original visual context, yet an interesting release nontheless.
