rkss aka Robin Buckley has released Brostep In The Style Of Florian Hecker, his ode to Florian Hecker’s 2009 release Acid In The Style Of David Tudor. The release “investigates the similarities of brostep with Hecker’s work such as Sun Pandämonium (2003)”, explains Buckley, who goes on to describe it as “an eight channel electroacoustic composition that challenges ideas of economic and cultural values within sound art and contemporary computer music”.

It will be available digitally as a stereo mixdown of each individual channel, plus four different stereo pairs. There are also some limited edition lanyards to bag and a free video game made for Mac, Linux and Windows, through which the player can experience the piece in a VR university dorm room where the piece was apparently constructed.

rkss’s Brostep In The Style Of Florian Hecker is released by Conditional.
