This project came into being when Raul Starcz of Bosses Hang (based in Romania) connected with GX Jupitter-Larsen and Richard Ramirez, veterans of the American noise scene, in the hopes of putting together a remote collaboration. Created during the isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic, "Movement Under Construction" combines Ramirez's trademark walls, Jupitter-Larsen's immediate and visceral noise style and Starcz's destroyed and weeping synthesizers. But a vein of tonality runs throughout these two pieces as well, contributed by GX and simultaneously retrospective and foreboding. Full of melancholy and nostalgia, this project seems to transport the listener to a vague yet alluring past. Or perhaps an ominous and ever-approaching future is being beckoned. Either way the effect seems to be the same: a hazy feeling of being out-of-time, reaching forward and backward out of the present, grasping for solidity.

I cannot praise this album enough. This album is absolutely terrifying! The many starts and stops creates this very h settling tension. Each start expands on the stopper idea previously. It’s like the music equivalent of walking through thick fog while passing out multiple times throughout trying to find a place to orientate yourself. There may or may not be something sinister in that fog, but you don’t want to stick around to find out. Bought the vinyl so I summon the fog demons through spe showhornwithteeth
