Jim O'Rourke to release new 4XCD box set

Hope you got some time off coming up for the holidays, because you’re gonna need it.

Chicago-born, internationally-infamous experimental composer/performer Jim “Everywhere You Wanna Be” O’Rourke has just announced the November release of a new, epic, four-hour work entitled To magnetize money and catch a roving eye.

The piece was recorded over the course of two years at O’Rourke’s Steamroom studio and, reportedly, is composed of “detailed and delicate electronic layers, processed instruments, and ambiguous field recordings” which “come together in a slow-moving, fascinating kaleidoscope with multiple reflections and wrong turns, always in constant state of flux.”

And yes, naturally, it will take FOUR COMPACT DISCS to contain this “hypnotic, multi-faceted, labyrinthine piece which flows as slowly as a river while speeding back through memory, and shows all the talent of Jim O’Rourke.”

Get your roving hands on these shiny, money-magnetizing discs — which are due out November…SOMETHING-ISH? — right here.

As for where you’re gonna get your roving hands on a working CD player? You’re all on your own for that one.

To magnetize money and catch a roving eye:

Part I – 49:53
Part II – 60:53
Part III – 65:31
Part IV – 76:20
