Slew

Slew pools more than a decade of studio works spanning compilations issued by RRRecords, Tzadik, Alku, Realization, Digital Narcis, Self Abuse, Cuneiform and other groundbreaking labels. More than a compilation of compilation tracks, Slew documents the evolution of an artist dedicated to an immersive world of sound and aural vision. Bringing together many out of print and hard to find gems, Slew blurs the bounds of electro-acoustic, digital musique concrete, drone, noise, dark ambient and industrial. Dimuzio’s sonic reworkings range from an Elvis impersonator (on parade), junkyard ambiance, electric guitar, piano, voice, clarinet, feedback and shortwave sounds to cellist Tom Cora and the music of Dr. Nerve. Also featured is a new bonus track constructed from Dimuzio’s locked-groove submissions for the releases RRR-500 (RRRecords) and LockERS (E.R.S.). Slew charts the path of a prolific sound artist and composer and is an essential addition to any collection.
