“Rohrer is one of those rare alchemical explorers to have truly created a hybrid which is all his own, one that does not just exist to melt distinctions for its own sake, but is a natural result of years of experimentation with both the determination of electronic music and the ludic spirit of ‘free improvisation.’ On his newest offering, Continual Decentering, this vision is applied to a set of mostly in real time (live) performed explorations…” words by Thomas Bey William Bailey
“The noticeable lyric from the tranquil “White Rose” is “music is harder in the future”, and I can’t help but ponder over that thought. This quartet feels as though it has taken it upon itself to take music entirely out of what we would recognise as the Western tradition, to strip it down to emotion and feeling, relying on their intuition as to what works best and pursuing that unfailingly. It is a thing of great vision and also great beauty. You would be wise to snap it up quick.” – Freq.org
