"Massively regarded since his days as guitar assassin in the legendary Mission of Burma, Roger has since been making intensely sophisticated music, largely driven by his eclectic approach to prepared piano. He's released several critically acclaimed solo guitar and piano albums on Forced Exposure, Ace of Hearts, RRR and SST, which to a significant extent have led him to the pinnacle so readily apparent on From the Epicenter. Percussionist Larry Dersch joins Roger to form Binary System, likely the heaviest avant-classical duo on the planet. Binary's music is typically dark, complex, cinematic and loud. Its compelling nature is derived from a blueprint of heady neoclassicism, impressionistic avant-jazz leanings, and the relentless desire to rock (if such a term may be applied). In the final analysis, their unique aesthetic undoubtedly makes Binary System the spiritual kindred of Sir Glenn Branca."
