Master of deconstruction and reappropriation, Walter Gross takes a no-rules approach to freak-noise experimentation. His relentless output led to an inevitable collision with Small But Hard Recordings, and prompted his most epic work to date, Rotorcraft. The record refracts the grit of Baltimore's psych scene through the grotty underbelly of L.A., where Gross works isolated in a claustrophobic sound lab tucked under the freeway. The record sets hip-hop destruction against demented grunge vocals in a furious and affronting mosaic of work that is systematically re-constructed, broken down and reassembled. Rotorcraft should not make sense, but somehow Gross has tapped into the vein of some other realm. With no need for ceremony, he peels back a pair of grotty curtains to reveal glimpses of the divine and the unholy. Live, Walter Gross is as raw and uncompromising as his records. Armed with a pair of MPCs and a microphone, he envelops his audiences in a tripped-out journey through the bleak and the barren. Gross has appeared across Europe and the U.S., with collaborators including K-the-I???, Skrapez (Tenshun & Psychopop), Pedestrian (Anticon) and Sole (Anticon co-founder, Fake Four Inc).
