BroodingSideOfMadness: Field Recording, Ableton, Guitar, Cover Design

Melophobia: Analog Percussion, Field Recording

melophobia comes from Greece. He likes to experiment with long noise and drone sounds intermingled with field recordings and acoustic sounds. melophobia is heavily influenced by contemporary artists such as Merzbow and early ’90s shoegaze scene. He is active with his ultra-limited releases of his 3″/5″ CDr label ‘illicit-tapes’. He cherishes the piles of his priceless jap noise C-xx tapes and obscure vinyls.

BroodingSideOfMadness is interested in phonemes, graph theory, realism and any dystopian ambiance. He seeks for the generative element in his tracks. He is the founder of Etched Traumas netlabel.

Thanks to Pindaros C.

[ET104] BroodingSideOfMadness & nobodisoundz – Dis-Tu

Dis-TuEight lo-fi sketches that lead to unchartered territories while we breath few words of Mallarmé.

BroodingSideOfMadness is interested in phonemes, graph theory, realism and any dystopian ambience. He prefers the use of acoustic material than synthetic and he always seeks for the generative element in his tracks. He runs Etched Traumas net label.

Nobodisoundz comes from France and first started this sound-making project by cobbling together music samples, sounds, field recordings and the results of his fiddling with audio software. These sounds completed his works and added an atmosphere within and around his paintings, subsequent installations and videos. He looks for dense, heavy, noisy, squeaky, tense and quiet atmospheres, which have to be both dark and bright at the same time.
