New releases: Opaque and Post-Perreo 5

The last thing I released in 2020 was an Opaque release, the 20-minute digital Black Moncler Badyfur. It can be streamed in full on the Bandcamp here. My first release in 2021 (today) was a new Post-Perreo mix, the fifth instalment in the series. Like all the other entries in the series (save for theContinue reading “New releases: Opaque and Post-Perreo 5”

Little Fictions – Territory Of Light (C30, Small Worm)

On November 23, a new Little Fictions tape called Territory Of Light was released as a C30 through Small Worm, James Shearman‘s wonderful imprint for “experiments, mishaps, rummaging, field recording, grievous chaotic din, rabble-rousing, wall noise, Styx ferryman whistling tunes, children’s rhymes in dead languages, animal mating calls, number station remixes and anything else”. James hadContinue reading “Little Fictions – Territory Of Light (C30, Small Worm)”

Absent Erratum interview and new Opaque: Moncler Hudson

I was recently interviewed by Michael Tau about Absent Erratum for Anomaly Index. Anomaly Index is a great website which frequently posts interviews with people involved in fringe experimental projects (or some of their releases), among which, for instance, The Rita, Atrax Morgue and Fukte. You can read the full interview here. And out now:Continue reading “Absent Erratum interview and new Opaque: Moncler Hudson”

From the archives: Wolves – King Fragile (C10)

Many a noise artist is no stranger to an absolute preponderance of aliases, name variations and obscurely secret projects; they reflect subtle or larger style differences between them, entirely different thematic or musical approaches (and an obsessive engagement with them), collaborative or collective efforts, or, sometimes, mere whimsy. The use of numerous aliases can beContinue reading “From the archives: Wolves – King Fragile (C10)”

Absent Erratum: Atlantis Princess – Live At Aquaria Towers (Wild Lights, Volume 1)

Atlantic Princess 🌊 Live At Aquaria Towers (Wild Lights, Volume 1) is the 42nd release on Absent Erratum. This submission features one track at a total of 17 minutes and 41 seconds. It was released on November 4th, 2020. Bubbled under, the weight of all the water resting on her shoulders, Absent Erratum traverses theContinue reading “Absent Erratum: Atlantis Princess – Live At Aquaria Towers (Wild Lights, Volume 1)”

Panic & Ariana Grande

Pop music and popular culture have long proven fruitful sources of inspiration for harsh noise and harsh noise wall. James Killick’s Love Katy project can probably be considered the pioneering voice in the particular niche of pop music-inspired HNW, and plenty of others have followed suit, such as Killick with his own Carrie, as wellContinue reading “Panic & Ariana Grande”

Opaque – Delirium (Down Sluts Vol. IV) C30

Thomas Puopolo’s excellent Summer Interlude Records today released a new Opaque tape, a C30 entitled Delirium: Down Sluts Vol. IV. The Down Sluts series began as a trilogy of releases: the brief Intimacy (released digitally through James Killick’s Maniacal Laugh – just after another Opaque release on that same label, Moncler Hermine), Sensuality and EcstasyContinue reading “Opaque – Delirium (Down Sluts Vol. IV) C30”

Opaque – Ienki Ienki Michlin Supreme Rose

Just out: a new digital Opaque release, Ienki Ienki Michlin Supreme Rose. This release may be considered a teaser of sorts to a tape that’s coming up soon on Fall Into Void Records. Ienki Ienki, the brand, has so far been unexplored territory for Opaque, since the project’s focus has primarily been on Moncler, ofContinue reading “Opaque – Ienki Ienki Michlin Supreme Rose”

From the archives: Malheurr – Purge Fluids (Causerie Sur Le Temps) C20

One of the main attractions in sound creation, perhaps especially in experimental music and, for me personally, especially especially in HNW, is how much it is a narrative medium, in a practically writerly fashion. Voices can be employed at will, either by adjustments in sound design, thematic approach, visual identity or any combination of these.Continue reading “From the archives: Malheurr – Purge Fluids (Causerie Sur Le Temps) C20”

Opaque – Duvetica Diadema Princess

This year I participated in the Staticism tape swap, along with other such excellent artists as Cannibal Ritual, Bruising Pattern, She Walks Crooked and more. My entry was for October. The result was Duvetica Diadema Princess: a two-tape set housed in a double library case. The cassettes themselves are a marble lilac, with the fourContinue reading “Opaque – Duvetica Diadema Princess”
