Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"15 8 SLUM is Rudi Fischerlehner's first drum solo album. A note about a rhythm in 15/8 lying side by side with Rene Pollesch's book "www-slums" next to his drumkit by accident lead to the slightly dadaistic title, which seems appropriate to describe the extremes in Fischerlehner's music: polyrhythmic construction on one hand - 15 8 - improvised rhythm-housings leaning against each other and unconscious soundscapes on the other hand - SLUM. It's complex and abstract - and goes to the core instantly."-Nit Applicable
