The Goat, assisted by The BUTCHER and LORDHELL. Scapegoat began in the early 1990's. It was in a dark building in downtown Salt Lake City, during the twilight hours. Heavily inspired by Legion, Lustmord, Controlled Bleeding, Ain Soph, Zero Kama, LAShTAL and other ritual and dark ambient sounds, The Goat combines these feelings and ideals with our own unique sounds. We use electronics and acoustic instruments, and a great deal of our sounds are supplied by the ambience of the dark world around us in various locales, as well as our own voices. Our material will range from the harshest noise to lush ambient sounds. There is no god. There is no magic. There is no heaven nor is there a hell. There is only Science. There is only Logic. There is only Death. Only Space and Time are Reality. After Death, Space and Time blur and distort- and one can travel wherever- and whenever- one wishes. We have found a way to do this before death. Use our sounds.

Francesco Fuzz Brasini Sevenguitars is a project born from the idea of interaction between sound and space. The project features seven guitars, seemingly identical but technically conceived to produce distinctive characteristics: the seven instruments have been designed and handcrafted with a tonal chamber inside the solid body which interacts with the string's harmonic vibrations creating different sound effects. Every guitar is connected to a valve-amplifier each of witch is equipped with distinctive speakers and different power. The amps are used at the maximum volume and tone. This creates a feedback effect with the guitars: the strings go in auto-oscillation creating different harmonics depending on the instrument and the tuning, and reacting with the acoustic features of the performative environment. The musician loses, therefore, the role of executor and becomes only the creator of a process open to unpredictable results and closely related to the spatial contest of the performance. Every place, every contest, becomes an important variable able to influence the result: the sound, therefore, is more linked to the spatial dimension rather than to the temporal one with which the music is traditionally associated.
Kristen M. | Sewer Goddess echo's like the voice of rust. Like a pole dance from a mutilated corpse. Like the chaos and filth that collects in the gutters and the cracks in the sidewalks. Like the sadness and shamed lust of glory holes, like the hum of fluorescent light sliding through the grates of a killing floor. Like fucking. Like dying. Black atmospheres spiraling down into discordia. Like time eating itself. Like drugs. Like contempt, madness, and lust. The tune you hum unawares leaving the Doctors office where you've just received your diagnosis: INOPERABLE.

W.A.Davison. Songs of the New Erotics is an experimental audio and performance art project headed by Toronto-based polymedia artist W.A.Davison. The project was initiated in 1991 as a means of translating various Recordist/Surrealist experiments into finished works of music, film, and performance art The Songs of the New Erotics project is essentially divided into two complimentary components - performances and audio compositions. Both aspects of the project may also involve film and video work (performance documents, "music videos", etc.) as well as elements of visual art, poetic texts, and other artistic forms.

Working in the area of experimental and free music since 1989, Sudden Infant is building up complex noise compositions, using unconventional sound sources, lo-fi electronics and turntables. Sudden Infant's music has a humorous and highly improvised character. Joke Lanz aka Sudden Infant creates an unique blend of physical sound-poetry and dadaistic vocal expression, using contact microphones, prerecorded soundloops and noises. The result is abrupt Musique Concrète juxtapositions of spasmodic gibbering and a battery of disorienting electronics. It's a fragmented field of sound that comes to its own autonomy!
