4 stars Much more challenging than the other electronic music of this era (except anything by Stockhausen or Nono), Rot is meditation music for the mentally deranged. The music on this album consists entirely of abstract experimental electronic manipulations that have been recorded in the form of 2 long tracks, each hypnotizing and confusing abstract. Cosmic beeping, percussive sequencing, and variating frequencies make up the electro-tribal landscape that can only be described as primitive other-worldly ritual music. "Meditation" is a soundscape of buzzing that induces both tenseness and relaxation somehow - a calm before the storm. "Krautrock" seems to me like a pre-battle ritual song for angry extra-terrestrials from the core of the red(rot)-planet.

This, like Blau, I would recommend to any fan of space music of progressive electronic, but this is much more abstract and experimental.
