february 2017 release. Since his emergence in the experimental music scene, about 20 years ago now, Kevin Drumm has perpetually shaken up conventions of various sub-genres with his major albums, for example, shifting from the tabletop/prepared guitar with his first self-titled album (1997), to noise with Sheer Hell Miasma, to ambient/drone with Imperial Distortion. He has been notably prolific recently, with numerous self-released CDR and digital releases. Elapsed Time is a collection of some of these recent works, dating from 2012 to 2016: desolate ambient drone (Middle Of Nothing (2016), February (2016)), "cassette tape music" or raw musique concrete, (Earrach (2013), The Whole House (2012)), computer assisted live electronics and rough spectral music (Crooked Abode (2015), Bolero Muter (2015)), with additional tracks from Tannenbaum (2013) and Shut-In (2014). Elapsed Time documents one of the key figures in American avant-garde at his peak of creativity. Remastered by Giuseppe Ielasi; Hi-fi system recommended.
