* Edition of 300. Gorgeous double-CD packaged inside a full-color, eight-panel, heavyweight digipak. Multifold full-color insert with photos and liner notes included. * Quoting Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly "The music is intense on every level, and there is a great underlying tension in these pieces, a mysterious force if you will." Recorded on the hottest days in the longest year, Bob Bellerue's "Radioactive Desire" is a work for free chamber music in feedback environments. Simple improvisational structures gave focus to the exquisite playing of the musicians, and the performers were physically located within speakers of varying sizes to create multidimensional feedback systems.

It is a project borne of feedback between speakers and instruments, but the context in which it came to fruition demonstrated the deep interconnections between people and systems of collaboration. The project was a way to activate musical signals with the push and pull of chthonic energy, yet we felt and lived that in the improvisation of our lives to a more visceral extent than we may have ever thought possible. Working with these sounds, processes, and ideas provided substance and process for me to work through these difficult times.

I am indebted with gratitude to the relaxed and precise skills of the musicians who took on this project, a group of deep shredders in the avant-garde improvised extended cosmic free music worlds. They were able to roll with the handwritten notes that provided the scant written music, and create new forms of music in real time.



Bob Bellerue is a sound artist, experimental musician, sound/video curator, and creative technician based in Ridgewood NY. Over the last 30+ years he has been involved in creating and presenting a wide range of sonic activities – experimental music, sound art, noise, junk metal percussion ensembles, soundtracks for dance/ theater/ video/ performance art, and sound / video installations. Bob’s electronic sound work is focused on resonant feedback systems, using amplified instruments, objects, recordings, and spaces, in combination with electronics and software written in the Supercollider audio synthesis programming language.
Bob works as an audio engineer and technical director, working presently for Issue Project Room, and a handful of clients in the NYC area once the coast is clear.

"Radioactive Desire" is made possible, in part, with funds from MAAF, a regrant partnership of NYSCA Electronic Media/Film and Wave Farm, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
