Frayed Edges Run Ragged

sometimes i feel that we are very close to the breaking point and all i can see are the cracks. this mix of experimental noise, hardcore, modern classical, free jazz, electronics and found sound illustrates this state of mind. it’s dedicated to those shouting in the wind.

Electro Superstructure no. 19

entering the superstructure you sense it’s vastness as synths and robot voices endlessly float by, bouncing in mechanic rhythm off mammoth walls made of drum machine snares, girders of bass and tensile hi hats. the further in you go the more things abstract; sound clusters in corners and beats run on forever into the light.
