burn is the second coming of a continuing project. The first
phase began in 1998-99 with projekt // 23 scoring well on
mp3.com with his rythmic noise and industrial experiments.
burn has decided to mature his sound, and focus more on
certain aspects of previous experimentation. Influences come from being a club
DJ, and his focus is the dance floor.
Machine rhythms are fused with hip hop breakbeats, arranged to receive
maximum stomp-a-bility. This song is previously unreleased.
C/A/T is one of the many outputs of Ben Arp.
C/A/T has evolved through many stages, ranging from
experimental ambience to the more "noise-rhythm" based style found here.
"Dying Morality" was recorded during a time when C/A/T
was run using the smallest amount of equipment possible... without using a
computer. Look for more from C/A/T soon... coming on Crunch
Centyl is the sour-noise side-project of Zach Forbes, better
known as longtime underground techno act Dr Polymer. The
motivation behind Centyl is to produce ear-throbbing, beat
pounding electronics made entirely with analog and home made equipment, tapes,
and amplifiers. Centyl has performed live numerous times in
the East Coast USA, and in the future will begin work with a plethora of
collaborators. A full length is complete, and hungry for release. Labels, this
means you. Midi-free music for the advil addict.
consume=J.Wood and a bunch of cheap software. From Edmonton,
Alberta, Canada, he's been making this awful racket and enraging live audiences
since 1998. The track on this compilation is an outtake from his latest CDR,
Shallow End of the Scene Pool. Future releases will edge cautiously away
from the previous crunch-bang, toolbox-thrown-down-concrete-stairs type
material and into the realm of neo-ambient adjectivecore death-polka. Yeah.
d.b.s. is a project from Scott Sturgis
(Converter/Pain Station). The premise of d.b.s. is that all
the sounds used in creating d.b.s. tracks are made only with
Scott's mouth and/or voice, sampled using a microphone running through various
effects. Spread Your Wings is a bit of a departure from the standard
d.b.s. sound, utilizing more traditional-sounding
"instruments" interwoven with various melodic elements.
Form/Alkaline is Phil Caldwell & Steve Watkins, who previously
released three CDs and toured the US as Scar Tissue in the

Monitor is a project by Aaron Tobias & Steve Watkins, of
5000 Fingers & Form/Alkaline, respectively.
Steve creates the effect-box feedback sources and Tobias provides sequencing,
noises, & percussion. Two Monitor songs have been completed
and can be found at the link below.
The Intent: To work towards a form that is constantly mutating. To disfigure
the face of music with evolution or to evolve the face of music into
The Content: Throbbing beats merge with a sea of noise. Melodies are masked
by such intense dissonance that they become a near wash of rhythmic texture.
The Component: Ezra S. started manipulating an aardvark machine and a
five-string feedback generator in late 1998, using them to create standard
musical pieces. Experiencing disgust and boredom with them, however, he
turned to a binary processor in order to dissect and reconstruct these
pieces into scouring arrangements.
Om Fx Skole
Om fx Skole started in 1997 by Shawn Vokal when he began putting together a
fully hands-on studio. All Om fx Skole music and production is made without
the use of any computer software. All hardware - analogue and digital
synths, drum machines, mixers and recorders used to pull together new hybrids
of song construction, beats, and ambient soundscapes. The track featured on
Feedback Loop shows the less abstract and more dance-able side of the ever
changing musical styles of Om fx Skole.
TYROPHEX14 is Jonathan Sharp.
This is Tyrophex 14's third compilation appearance - others being on
Hardware ( MCT ), Death Compilation ( Maschinenwelt ).
xszi ("zai") is the experimental side project of lx: the
focus of xszi is total re-contextualization of simple, common,
or well-known audio waveforms.
Despite the crunchy, distorted and shamelessly aggressive content of the track,
90% of the Feedback Loop composition
"confinedToBlinders" was directly derived from a clean, three-second
sample of Mozart's piano sonata in C Major by way of extreme digital
transformations. The sample makes a cameo appearance towards the end of the
track to further illustrate the counterpoint.
