Following the successful 2014 tape debut, Administration of Fear, Samuel Savenberg presents the first vinyl release from his highly acclaimed industrial/electronic project S S S S. It immediately becomes clear to the listener that this is no light fare; a distorted beat mercilessly shatters layered vocal samples at tenacious intervals. The term Autopoiesis is not to be understood in the vein of Luhmann's systems theory, but refers instead to it's biological meaning - the sheer self-preservation of life. Found-footage vocal samples of despaired souls and manically impelling beats bear witness to several forms of the struggle to preserve life. Passages of claustrophobic ambience are too urgent and erratic to give the listener any respite, though the epilogue, Identitat III, seems almost conciliatory in it's far-reaching expanse. S S S S performs his unique form of industrial music in clubs from Milan to Berlin and Moscow. Fans of Throbbing Gristle, SPK, or Haus Arafna can put their minds at ease; another generation of uncompromising artist is here. Recorded December 2014 and January 2015. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl.
