Reviews:
(Vital Weekly) It was more than thirty years ago that I was first in contact with Jeff Surak. He had a solo musical project, 1348, a label (Watergate Tapes; he is from Washington DC after all), and a group New Carrolton. Surak was one of those active players in the worldwide cassette scene. Beyond that, I stayed in contact with Jeff on and off, though, fair enough, more off. At one point, he was the organiser of the Sonic Circuits Festival in his home town and still runs a label, Zeromoon. Many of the releases are digital-only but occasionally in a physical form. I heard only a fraction from his massive body of work, certainly when it comes to his more recent output. Likewise, I am also a bit in the dark about the sort of technology used by him. From my recollection, I would say Surak uses electronics, be it stompboxes or laptops, in combination with acoustic instruments. I remember a zither was one of them and judging by the music here. I can still see him using one. Surak's music is a fine combination of both ends. The zither (and other acoustica at his disposal) sometimes played rather loosely, almost as if in an improvised manner. Picked up the laptop, Surak alters the scenery, and it all becomes coherent and together. He serves loops, rhythms, drones, usually in an intricate pattern. Although we no longer recognise them, I'm sure field recordings found their way into the music. Throughout, the mood of his music is on the dark side, but not exclusively; it isn't all too bright either. Surak's music is profound and sturdy. He doesn't care too much for things being quiet and spaced out, even when '16 Hours on Neptune' suggests he likes that. 'Parasite Lost' covers the whole first side and is Surak's at his most droniest and, at times, loud with piercing sounds. On the other side, there are four pieces, all quite different from each other. All of this makes up the perfect showcase for Surak's many interests. - Frans de Waard
