„Psychogenic Music from Neoterrik Research“
Existing in a world of insensibilities for those who are eradicable. A fine art to survive as true homo-centrics. The bio-electric energy streams are the psychic core and mark the present possibilities yet to evolve. Alchemical processes, synthesis, purification, electronic psycho-acoustics in a shroud of mystery. „Nothing is sacred anymore“ A slow decay on this terminal beach. The paradigm is already set and waits for us to assist in the mystery of its making, of its transmutation, from potentiality to actuality.
Bad sector is a musical project created by Massimo Magrini (Italy). Graduated in Computer Science, he studied academic electronic music and works as a researcher in the Italian National Research Council (CNR). His research topics include digital signal processing and gestural devices for man machine interaction. He teaches Interaction Design at the Academy of Arts in Pisa. As Bad Sector, since 1994, he has been releasing many CDs, vinyls, tapes, always having good response in the international underground scenes. His first album, Ampos, is generally referred as reference in the dark ambient scene. He usually presents his music in audio-visual performances, often using special controllers. Besides Bad Sector, in 2001 Magrini formed the project Olhon, together with the Where leading member Zairo, exploring the territories between dark ambient and field recordings, using only sounds recorded in extreme locations (caves, underwater etc.) as source material.
Ivan Pavlov / COH [b. 1968] is a sound artist and musician based in Stockholm, Sweden. From classical piano lessons at a Soviet music school as a child, through to his teenage fascination with electric guitars and distortion pedals, Pavlov’s current interest in bridging the gap between the science of sound and music as an art form was shaped by studies in acoustics, theoretical physics and mathematics.
COH records explore the borders of contemporary music with releases on labels such as Raster-Noton, Mego, Eskaton and Staalplaat. Over the years Ivan had worked with a number of artists and performers, including Richard Chartier [in a CHESSMACHINE project], Peter Christopherson [as SOISONG], Telco Systems [as TELCOH], John Balance, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Annie Anxiety Bandez and Ann Demeulemeester, among others. The primary focus of these collaborations, and of Ivan’s own work, has always been to find and enhance the qualities of sound – be that instrument, voice or a computer generated waveform – responsible for creating resonances in listener’s perception of both music itself and surrounding reality.
Richard “Richie” Herbst (born 1976) is an austrian sound activist and based in Graz, often credited simply as Herbst. He uses Analog Modular Synthesizer and Effects.
