about

In 1998 Rent Romus began the Vortex PKD Project first in a series of musical adventures merging the concepts of visionary science fiction with exploratory music. In this early incarnation of the Lords of Outland, Romus' concept of freely improvised "vortex" music draws inspiration from a vast array of science fiction authors such as Phillip K. Dick. Within pop culture reference Mr. Dick's work made movies such as Blade Runner, Total Recall, and Screamers possible. In fact most science fiction from the last sixty years must give credit to this dark master of pulp fiction. The compositions presented reflect the feelings and visuals created by the author translated by Romus and the ensemble into the music set on this early Edgetone release.
vortex music (noun) 1. Free improvisation music reflecting the exploratory nature of science fiction
