Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Radere is the alias of Carl Ritger, a sound artist currently living and working in Denver, Colorado. Inspired by the notions of stasis and chance, he has explored the fusion of traditional instrumentation and experimental processes for the better part of the last decade, blurring guitars, location recordings and electronics into a densely textured wash of sound.
Since 2003, Radere has released work for labels around the world, including Full Spectrum, Moodgadget, basic_sounds and Futuresequence. In addition to his solo efforts, he also maintains several ongoing collaborations with a wide range of artists, such as Offthesky, Sun Hammer, Ten And Tracer and Coppice Hallifax, as well as Anduin, with whom he conducts the Andere project.
This space largely collects works in progress and off-the-cuff improvisations, along with the occasional finished piece. Please visit the Radere Bandcamp - linked below - for a full selection of releases.
