From the label:

Radere is the nom du plume of Carl Ritger, a Philadelphia-based writer and sound artist. Inspired by the notions of stasis and chance, he has been exploring the fusion of acoustic sound sources and digital production techniques since 2003. Largely shunning synthesis in favor of heavily processed organic loops, Ritger’s aesthetic aims to strike a delicate balance between densely textured washes of sound and subtle rhythmic structures. His full-length debut – 'A Process In The Weather Of The Heart' – was recently issued via Full Spectrum Records.

'Maple Drip' marks his sophomore effort, showcasing a composition that has popped up in his live performances in one form or another for nearly two years. Intended as an ode to the transition from winter to spring, this EP stands as a more minimalist effort than the decidedly denser sound world found on his Full Spectrum release. Stripping away much of the digital processing techniques that defined that album, Ritger reveals an interlocking mosaic of guitar loops, field recordings and burbling electronics that gradually accumulates to a shimmering wall of sound, all textural thrums and immersive resonances.

Radere is the alias of Carl Ritger. His work primarily explores the shadowy gulf that exists between drone and noise, blurring electronics and location recordings into densely textured sonic monoliths.
