RORALAXIS, the ninth commissioned work for Cold Fiction Music, this time for their Futur[e]cho 2016 compilation album, appears here as an expanded work with two additional pieces from the original session. PRELURAL is a modest opening piece, establishing the speed of the pulses, the tint of the colors and the temperature of the waters that are to follow. Built entirely from a single FM-synthesized kick drum and 9 different recordings of appliance and electrical humming, PRELURAL casts a tonal shade over three minutes before moving onward, into the title track. RORALAXIS itself is a 9-minute piece consisting of some of PRELURAL's appliance interference, along with Korg KPR-77 and ER-1 drum machines tethering the atmospheric sound to the rhythm. Extensive tape processing, spring reverb and analog delay boxes dowse the chords (themselves a set of two tape loops harvested from the RURALS session tapes) and give the piece a considerable amount of grit and detritus to find its way out of. In closing, LAXIS creeps in and hangs just above the waterline for 66 minutes. LAXIS combines elements from both previous tracks, processed further via FFT and an Alesis Quadraverb. In this, the rhythms are melted down to an intermittent buoy of ring modulation and bass, while a grandiose wall is erected from the fumes of the appliance loops. Mixed very far away in the stereo distance is a buzzing Nand Drone synth, buried in miles of storm cloud reverb and flange. In some respects, LAXIS is the closest CH has ever come to making "space music" in the traditional (new age) sense, although it could also fit into the more experimental CH canon such as NARCOTIC MONTHS or DEEP EARTH. Headphone music for nightly repetitions.
