Out With the Old was originally recorded in the same sessions in 1990, then tampered with over the years until released by Avanto in 2006.
thanks to everyone involved with the original releases.
With the entanglement and interaction of noise and musical tone, we seem to have traveled through the jungle infested by ghosts, and witnessed a new universe being reborn in this strange chaos and harmony. Through this recording, Jim O’Rourke reconstructed the order of sound in a sense. alain.proust
To me, this album sounds like a dying planet that was once full of life, but is now mostly desert with a few pockets of water. This music creates such specific pictures like that, and that's why I enjoy it so much. ggrimes65
