Rrose is the alias of Seth Horvitz, an interdisciplinary artist from California whose 20+ year history weaves in and out of academic circles and electronic music culture. Their work is informed by ongoing interests in microtonality, the limits of perception, and the idiosyncrasies of machines. This past June they released their latest album Please Touch, a captivating record that splits its time between immersive techno rhythms and cerebral weightless ambient passages.
"Full of orderly chaos and beautiful decay," Rrose's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a mix of music they've been listening to at home recently and properly displays their affinity for heady, experimental, provocative sounds.
