[CD version] Through his output both as a sound artist and through his eclectic Dekorder record label, Back to Comm (Marc Richter) has established himself as a singular voice of new music. His Thrill Jockey debut, Seven Horses For Seven Kings is Richter’s most direct and visceral work to date. It is unashamedly dark and undeniably angry. But rather than be consumed by such emotions, Richter employs them here as ecstatic release.

A relentless sonic explorer, he approaches the studio as his instrument, using sampling, analogue production and digital manipulation to sculpt audio fragments into surprising new shapes. Samples from Richter’s contemporaries like German composer Nils Frahm are bent and compounded with elements of early recorded music and medieval song, creating pieces that transcend time and genre. Richter blurs the lines between organic instrumentation and digital production to the extent that the two become inseparable.
