Lumisokea continue their exploration of rhythm technology and electroacoustic experiments while paying tribute to the pioneering spirit of the visionary inventors and composers from the early 20th century in the former Soviet Union. Transmissions from Revarsavr presents a meticulously balanced aural web of polyrhythmic constructions, clashing and chiming copper plates, sub-zero bass shudders, and glowing synths. Combining their fondness for electroacoustic experimentalism with traditional rhythm science from Southern India and Korea, Lumisokea create a music in which the pulsating rhythms wind and coil unto themselves like a snake biting its own tail while metallic clangs and howling drones float in and out of focus. The point of departure for Transmissions from Revarsavr was a recording Lumisokea made in early 2014 of Vladimir Popov's "Noise Instruments," remarkable mechanical contraptions designed in the 1920s to imitate the sounds of the coming industrial era. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M. Artwork by Darren Brian Adcock.
