R.O.T. - L'ÉCURIE (LP)


"R.O.T. has gained a quality reputation in the underground scene during their six years of existence. This led to a splendid cdr- and tape discography. "L'écurie" is their first long player. Each side contains two jams that sound like calm and fluently movements through sound at one time, then like a somewhat more brutal treatment at another point. The album shows nicely how R.O.T. works as a (live) band. It's not about well-thought sound poetry here, but about spontaneous improvisation where random incidents are considered as an extra band member. A slow bass that wanders gently through the acoustic droning, when suddenly an alarm clock starts to ring, followed by new almost-quietness and laidback noise. R.O.T. stands for an original approach of sound sources and a continuously seeking for the "moment". Side A was recorded in an abandoned administration building in Jette, a small town near Brussels. The space was run by young students for six months and renamed the place "l'écurie", the French for stable. R.O.T. improvised in the dusty kitchen during three long days, mostly during the nights as well. The tracks on the B side are takes from improvisations in an horse stable. There again the album's title refers to L'écurie. This time at an old farm which is called Ferme du Biereau (Louvain La Neuve). The farm is also known as a nice venue and spot for artists en musicians." (label info)
