B L U R B S:

"This music exists in a high state of deconstruction, and for some this will push the boundaries of what they accept as music. For me, this kind of boundary pushing music is absolutely necessary. This is the fulfillment of the vision of Charles Ives, American music passed through a psychedelic kaleidoscope of possibilities."-Paul Paradis, allmusicblog

"Upon first listen, I got maybe three - probably two - tracks into it and then skipped ahead a couple tracks and skipped ahead a couple tracks and then took it out and threw it underneath a chair... and then I picked it back up about a week and a half later and I listened to it and I thought, "This is one of the most amazing pieces of work that I have ever heard." It gets its hands dirty and greasy with all of the steampunk aesthetic. It's very rare that you find a piece of music that just floors you. I think it's pretty brilliant what he's done."-The Clockwork Cabaret

"With its new CD, 'afterglow', RPM Orchestra engages us to listen more closely and think more deeply about all that hits our ears. The album is filled with compelling aural collages forged from decaying found recordings, various incidental noises, and purposeful dronings. The pieces are spliced from a disparate range of sources – a single composition might feature bursts of Sousa from the turn of the 20th century, electronic pulses, and snippets of vintage vocal ramblings. Instead of a collection of sprawling and jumbled experimentations, 'afterglow' is an awakening to the latent vibrancy all around us."-Phoenix New Times
