Black Rose Recordings are proud to present the stunning new solo release by Ralf Wehowsky.
He is currently one of the most respected electronic composers of our day.
With this release his starting point is the comparison of the black plague and covid-19 as there are some astonishing similarities of how people dealt with the diseases.
Denial of reality, conspiracy theories, searching for scapegoats, etc: Surely satanic inventions are the source of all calamities? Extracts from documentary recordings and a few fragments of ars nova/subtilior compositions have been transformed, extended, fragmented and re-contextualised, from which the 15 pieces of this release are built.
Ralf Wehowsky was one of the founder members of the seminal German group P16.D4 and the label Selektion whose ground-breaking releases influenced many working in today’s experimental music scene.
Previous releases have seen him collaborate with such well known and diverse artists such as Merzbow, Bernhard Guenter, Jim O’Rourke, Achim Wollscheid and Lionel Marchetti.
His music is impossible to pigeonhole into one simple bracket.
RLW's work moves on the edge of musique concrete, but never looses it's touch with industrial music on the one hand and with microsound on the other.
