Tom Rimshot returns to the Bedroom Compost series with his Korg Volca Sample! Employing a unique strategy of playing nine memory bank patterns already present and programmed in the machine (after it was purchased used from another producer) but with a completely replaced file structure/sample library. This means that where the Volca may have triggered a clap before, it could be triggering a hi-hat or a bass kick now. Patterns are legible but do not necessarily make rhythmic "sense", providing the perfect setup for a session that goes everywhere from granular drone synthesis to minimal techno workouts, and enough off-kilter electro to recall classix like Gescom's This/That and Skull Snap 12"s, as well as the early Pentax recordings by Reinhard Voigt at Profan. For the heads, the limited edition CD-R contains two additional trax, TR208 (which goes completely off the rails into so much granular motion sequencing madness that you might think you're listening to Richard Chartier) and TR209, which lands the bird gracefully with a funky hip-hop bounce built with samples from Bob Ross on The Joy Of Painting.

Tom Rimshot will return...with the Blue Beat!
