Originally released in 1977, the late Juan Hidalgo’s Rrose Sélavy gets the reissue treatment from Discos Transgénero. The work is a queer examination of the role of language in socially constructing and maintaining gender roles. As a composition, it expresses this with the analogy of a musical language and then gets to work disrupting compositional norms. A lullabyish, disorientatingly unpredictable sequence on the celesta is gradually accompanied by more and more layers of instruments and textures.
