Rrill Bell’s new mix shares some of his work in progress and a preview of his upcoming solo LP on Elevator Bath (among other things).

Using a custom-made kit composed of cast-off relics of the Tape Age (foremost among them his trusty modified Fostex analogue multi-tracker) and surrounded by piles of cassettes, Rrill Bell assembles complex abstract emotive tone poems on the fly, one re-contextualized fragment at a time, drawing from the formative inspirations of radical scratch culture, Cagean thought, early tape music, musique concrete and various strains of free music practice.
