The third album from Causa Sui drummer Jakob Skøtt expands his one-man-band experiments into vast new territories. Taurus Rising is built from motorik synthesizer arpeggios and heavy-duty live drumming. But rather than simply worshipping endless repetition, Skøtt reaches an impressive array of expressions on each of these five mini epics -- each song is ALIVE -- frequently whirling off track like the wind's direction in a sand storm, leading to some mind-altering melodies and rhythms that'll keep you on your toes. Washed currents of pulsating analog synthesizer scores, pre-fusion jazz sensibility and fuzzed-out electronics all tied together by fevered rhythms. Jakob Skøtt is the drummer in revered Danish experimental psych act Causa Sui and has previously collaborated with artists from Tortoise and Sunburned Hand Of The Man. In a number of different outfits he has also released thru esteemed labels such as Morr Music, Ghostly International, and Darla Records. Furthermore, Jakob has done exclusive live visuals and artwork for Amon Düül II, Earthless, Manual, cult actress Asia Argento as well as The Roadburn Festival. Taurus Rising is released as a single LP as well as a 2CD package, also containing his previous album Amor Fati. All drums for each album were improvised in a single afternoon.
