about

Custodian - II
With eight tracks in under seventeen minutes, this is a short but highly potent blast of scourging white noise. The untitled tracks are exercises in gruesome distortion and crunch-laden glitch electronics; violent pedal-fu and diseased sound processing result in the sound of demolition and deconstruction. It's not pretty, but it is highly engaging, with plenty of texture to the clotted sounds and a reasonable level of dynamics and flow for something so steeped in harshness. Some of the tracks have a rhythmic pulse buried under the noise, and in some cases the rhythm is the primary source of noise itself. While the sound and propensity for sonic violence is thoroughly rooted in power electronics, the conceptual axis and architecture of many of these pieces recalls the early stages of industrial music (and by early, I mean the era of Throbbing Gristle, early Lustmord, and SPK). There's no political statement at work here, just the documentation of a man making ugly noises purely for the sake of creating ugly art, and doing it well. Strong stuff.
