Multi-instrumentalist Robert Burger is the brainchild behind THE GAK OMEK, an experimental instrumental progressive project combining symphonic elements of Larry Fastís SYNERGY and FUTURE SOUNDS OF LONDON with the bone crunching bombastics of the Larks Tongue In Aspic thru Red era KING CRIMSON.
Nonrenormalizability is an impressive follow-up to Burgerís previous albums Alien Eye and Return Of The All-Powerful Light Beings. Each new release displays a remarkable level of compositional maturity and sophistication.
The music is an insane hyper-kinetic soundscape of psychedelic space rock, rhythmic tribal fusion, concrete sounds, manic guitar and keyboard interplay, and snippets of sampled dialog blended together into a giant acoustic Cuisinart, creating an exotic taste treat for the adventurous listener.
Very highly recommended.
(And his track listing sure can play hell with Spell Check.)
