Jim O'Rourke (born January 18, 1969) is an American musician and record producer. He was long associated with the Chicago experimental and improv scene. Around 2000, he relocated to New York before moving on to Tokyo, Japan, where he currently resides. O’Rourke is best known for his numerous solo and collaborative projects, many of which are entirely instrumental, and for his tenure as a member of Sonic Youth from 1999 to 2005.
Early work by Jim O'Rourke in which he attempts to bring together diffrent elements and styes of avante-garde music into a piece whose effect is completly overwhelming. 1 track only timing in at about 40 minutes it begins with Fahey/Bull minimalist lines carefully sugesting a melody with slow drone barly audible in the background. Who cares? How about a double album next time Jim? You might waste a couple of hours but, goddam, it would be worth it. News just in: To be fair to Jim, "eureka" and "Insignificance" are tuneful, well arranged and memorable.
Insignificance (Jim O'Rourke album). Insignificance is a 2001 studio album by Jim O'Rourke, originally released on Drag City. It is named after the Nicolas Roeg film of the same name. It peaked at number 35 on the UK Independent Albums Chart.
