Including the unheard 1988 album Light Metabolism Number Prague.

RVNG sub-label Freedom To Spend is reissuing all four albums by leftfield, minimal artist Rimarimba, the musical alias of Felixstowe native Robert Cox.

The Rimarimba Collection is a four-LP set of recordings previously only available on cassette and rare vinyl, including 1983’s Below The Horizon, 1984’s On Dry Land, 1985’s In The Woods, and the previously unheard 1988 album Light Metabolism Number Prague.

The career retrospective will be released alongside a short film based on Robert’s life, as well as an “audiovisual postcard” from Felixstowe, UK.

With shades of Brian Eno’s ambient work and Steve Reich’s procedural composition, as well as suggestions of the esoteric charm of Moondog’s contrapuntal constructions, Rimarimba’s DIY experimentations vary wildly, from sunny synth patterns to dissonant drone pieces.

The Rimarimba Collection will be released via Freedom To Spend on 4xLP on 21st September, in a limited edition, screen-printed canvas carrier. It will be the only opportunity to purchase the unheard 1988 album Light Metabolism Number Prague.

Following its release, Freedom To Spend will release the additional three albums individually, with Below The Horizon arriving on 5th October, On Dry Land on 8th January 2019 and In The Woods on 22nd February.
