- Turntables / Electronics / Effects
«Distort the signal into a communicative tension, reaching the bodily effects of noise as music… The sounds of roaring sea is not far from white noise, but is not considered unpleasant & irritating… Disturbance…Psycho-acoustic tests… To the point where harsh noise is not considered unpleasant demands a training of the senses, a lack of restraint, allowing all sounds to be music, emancipating noise from its mimetic function, abstracting it as purely aesthetic... Shifting the focus from the notes to the sounds, by setting music as layered organized sounds, an implosion of meanings into the sublime... A convulsive beauty... A sensuous impression... An overload of the nervous system, maybe reflecting our inner & outer chaos... Absorbing the listener into an ecstatic black hole... Just like an orgasm...»
"Dark & noisy duo, organic and erotic, mysterious & a bit surreal. An intense and physical sound that overran our whole body with its strength and its evocative power. An intelligent and successful link between industrial & electroacoustic music. A happy discovery" Metamkine

- Tapes / Turntables / Electronics
An Instrumentarium to give substance and shape to our ongoing research is the exploration of outdated analogue technology which are this time two spinning studio turntables.
Endless layers of hiss and noise from magnetic tape, Turntables and modified pickups blur the listening perception beyond recognition.
