For the third installment in RVNG Intl.'s archival series, the tape is wound back to 1970s Seattle, home place of ambient music savant K. Leimer. A Period of Review (Original Recordings: 1975-1983) unearths unreleased portions of Leimer's vast archives and highlights the work of a self-taught visionary whose use of generative compositions ferried his music to infinite resonance.Kerry Leimer was born in Winnipeg, Canada. He was raised in Chicago before his family permanently settled in Seattle in 1967. Kerry's teenage interests and artistic experiments blossomed from the seductively strange tendrils of Dadaism and Surrealism. In the early 70s, Leimer found musical parallels to these visual movements by studying import copies of NME and Melody Maker and inquiring with local record store clerks about the exotic descriptions he read of Can, Neu! and Faust - innovators who were bringing the wild dictates of 60s art discourse into music. 2xLP - Black ReRVNG03lp RVNG INTL.
