Eric Hardiman’s long-running Rambutan project has been blowing minds for nearly a decade with over three dozen(!) releases on labels like Stunned, Digitalis, Hooker Vision, No Kings, Avant Archive, Fabrica and his own excellent Tape Drift label. I was first turned on to Rambutan via Broken Infinity, and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Coming in on the abstract side of Rambutan’s disparate sound, Universal Impulses brings to mind (at least this mind) a diverse roster of sounds and influences. Minóy, Asmus Tietchens, Robert Turman, Das Freie Orchester and acousmatic practitioners like Bernard Parmegiani and Pauline Oliveros. All open to individual interpretation of course. Like most Rambutan recordings, this is a collection of music that rewards the patient listener with each repeated visit. New discoveries are waiting to be found on this tape of unconventional sonic journeys.

Universal Impulses comes in an edition of 75 pro-dubbed, chrome cassettes with download card.
