"To decay is also to transform. Rusting metal is the visible traces of passing time, as the oxidation process accumulates dampness in our atmosphere and imprints it as unpredictable patterns onto hard iron and steel. Working in construction for a year now, Kensho Nakamura sees rust all the time, clambering up aging chunks of material. Normally discarded as waste, Nakamura began discerning beauty in the phenomenon, organically spiraling around and consuming some of the very hardest of manufacturing stuffs into unique new forms.

'Electric Rust' continues the conceptual electronic composition mode of Nakamura's previous works with a series of fractured musical dioramas. These scurrying notes, sparse hums, and quivering bleeps explore the topics of rust and the accumulation of time. drips like a tap, and manifests unknowable inorganic shapes. Recognisable musical snippets of bells, pianos, or murmured voices are buried inside counterintuitive synthetic rhythms and tension.

On 'wet air' piano notes tinkle and pipes gargle, digital detritus tap dances and arpeggios stumble. On 'unique faces', idle marimbas and malfunctioning animalistic squeaks flounder. This is music from the promethean space between being forgotten and being conceived. Rust' is a topography of a world of rust, where corroding structures evolve into new — and beautiful — patterns of life.
