Damon Carruesco left his decade as bassist for Chicago minimalist rockers Disappears in 2015, deciding that experimental music was more his thing and opting to pursue the bold sound of TüTH. With the aim of exploring his own boundaries, potential, and skills as an artist, the atmospheric sounds of "Transgression" are Carruesco's attempt to create atmospheric electronic music that exists outside of "the grid". "Transgression" draws from field recordings and handmade sounds, taking key inspiration from brutalist architecture, the acousmatic music of Romanian composer Iancu Dumitrescu, and the loss of someone very close to the artist. Throughout "Transgression," pulsating tones evolve into cavernous and otherworldly atmospheres, while bass demons clash with much colder synthesizers emitting gloomy melodic patterns. The references for this deeply abstract music are varied, but Carruesco has managed to create a unique and challenging sonic landscape.

All music by Damon Carruesco. Artwork by Daniel Castrejón.
