Bernocchi, Quail, FM Einheit

Experimental Italian guitarist, electro-producer and sound designer  Eraldo Bernocchi joins forces with percussionist FM Einheit (a founder of the influential German industrial group Einstürzende Neubauten) and London-based cellist Jo Quail on Rosebud, a compelling mix of tranquil ambient sounds and pummeling industrial onslaughts.

From the opening Bloom, an 11-minute suite that travels from evocative ambiance to caustic crescendo, to the closing theme The Inquirer, which emerges gradually over a haunting drone and builds to a distortion-laced guitar climax, Rosebud carries a dark, foreboding undercurrent while showcasing the trio’s uncanny group-think in the throes of organised chaos.
