025 – Jeff Witscher (Rene Hell)

Saturday, April 21, 2012: A Large House Full Of Beautiful Furniture, With A Library & Many Other Rooms — with guest Jeff Witscher (Rene Hell)

• music to read morning paper to & finding narrative in more abstract sound containing excerpts & mixed accordingly

Cease to Exist invites special guest, Jeff Witscher alias Rene Hell, and mind behind the labels Agents of Chaos + the latest Salon Ltd. Over the last handful of years Witscher has made a name for himself under a plethora of different pseudonyms exploring various disparate styles. He's known for Impregnable, Secret Abuse, Marble Sky and as part of Roman Torment and Deep Jew, among others. As Rene Hell, we find him focused on synthesized kosmiche sounds – but unlike many of his contemporaries, instead of delving into nostalgia there is something decidedly modern about Witscher’s compositions.

Rene Hell will perform this Saturday, in part of the Work Related Series with White Dog, Hubble, and Paradise
