We are all islands; each set of ears, each set of lungs. Our intake and resolve are the product of individualized contact, and yet the ocean of subtle thought-forms which separate one mind from another are precisely that which connect us. Our three-piece is all about separations which unite, and unity that separates- musically and otherwise. As Minnesotan transplants to Portland, Oregon, we have taken part in a diverse array of projects, including Troubadour, Gratitillium, and a myriad of acoustic endeavors. We also enjoy spicy food, banter, and mind expansion. Influences for your consideration (in no particular order) include: The Orb, Acid Mothers Temple, Sun Ra, Throbbing Gristle, Earth, Seed Mouth, Daughters of the Sun, High Wolf, Skoal Kodiak, Moodring, Emeralds, and Black Dice.

From my tape vaults (via hard drive) comes this compilation of nearly 15 years of audio experimentation. Some of it makes me cringe with embarrassment, and some of it i listen to with admiration, considering how culturally isolated I was as a teenager. I had never heard of industrial music until I got much older, but used many techniques common to that genre out of expedience.

A 40 minute sinister working of doom rock and folk music that will take you on a journey to explore the inner mysteries of the ancient Mediterranean underworld and then send you straight into the heart of the creeping muskeg pits and forests of Finland's mythological past. "II" utilizes a series of authentic classical instruments like the baglama, zither and flute and more modern ones to create a link between our world and one which still dwells in the nexus of time.
Bird from the Abyss is the music of Pharaohs and ancient Sumerian kings!

We are an experimental noise duo from Brooklyn. Our influences range from visceral free improv bands like Last Exit, amplifier noise destroyers like The Dead C, spacey kraut jammers like Can and fast, aggressive punk rock a la Bad Brains, but it's not guaranteed to sound like any of that. We are also influenced by musicians like Kaoru Abe, who play incredibly inaccessible music, take too many drugs and die young.

Marc has collaborated with a diverse array of other artists and groups including Cock E.S.P., Jean-Louis Costes, Hair Police, Kenji Siratori, Noisebitch, and Lasse Marhaug. In 2009 Marc founded the independent label No Zen Records.
Marc's style is eclectic using low frequency sound exploration, field recordings, water, voltage-controlled oscillators, vocal moaning, screaming and scordatura notation. His lyrics take on bizarro satire and emotional disturbance.Download Rites Of Zen
I go by the name Idol Eyes and my album is called "Jiya Dhareka"
The album was first released on the website "Deep White Sound" and they had this to say about it: "Transmissions from the bastard canyon explored by Idol Eyes, mixing tape loops, cutups + aural collage, handdrums banjo and vocal distortion. Spasms of rural americana, temporal disturbances aplenty."

This album is heavily influenced by proto-punk and post-punk(but no so much punk itself). I guess the briefest description would be "experimental, DIY, rock/punk with lots of falsetto", or something more like "the shit scraped from the sides of my skull". Divided into the three parts, the first part is my initial discovery of this, lighter and more blatantly aware of my absurd and silly demeanor. Second part is much more lo-fi, recorded with a four-track tape recorder rather than digitally. The last part is back to digital, and much more "serious" sounding. These descriptions are pretty bad, sorry.
