Lucy and Rrose, now coming together as Lotus Eater (Lucy and Rrose), have established themselves separately as
techno artists who are just as comfortable operating in the uncharted area of experimental music. Running
their own labels (Stroboscopic Artefacts and Eaux, respectively), they have gained a cult following, both
influencing and challenging the direction of techno.
Their first collaboration took the form of mutual remixes. Lucy remixed Rrose, taking on his modern classic
“Waterfall” while Rrose remixed Dadub for Stroboscopic Artefacts, and shortly thereafter contributed an
extended EP as part of SA’s Monad series.
Eventually, the idea of working together became inevitable. Several intense sessions in Lucy’s Berlin studio
followed, using mainly analog hardware. These sessions gave birth to a new project, starting with two EPs
signed Lucy and Rrose, called ” Lotus Eater (Lucy and Rrose)” (SA) and “Lotus Eater II” (Eaux). With the
“Desatura” album, the first release signed under the project name Lotus Eater, their common work is
refined further, also becoming a live act which will debut at ADE (Amsterdam) 2018.
With “Desatura,” Lucy and Rrose explore themes of physical density, emptiness, and space, creating sonic
objects which can be rotated and viewed from multiple perspectives. Eschewing the typical instrumentation
of techno, the duo use synthesized sound and feedback as fundamental sources to generate both textural
and percussive elements. A sense of tension and weight emerge from sources that cannot be easily
pinpointed. The resulting album forms a complex narrative from a paradoxically simple and restrained set of
sound sources. A mysterious and profound accomplishment.
