Random Spheres of Influence



A compilation representing a variety of approaches to experimental / noise music from mostly low profile artists from around the world. The label IBOL put this together from artists on mp3.com and sold it for just $5 post paid in the US.

The Brutum Fulmen track here is "Waiting in the Basement", a title which seems a bit autobiographical as I hunch here over my keyboard in the cellar. My sound sources include: a low rumbling which (if I remember correctly) is the sound of my DAT deck recording it's own motor sounds, various shuffling about, metal shelving, a sculpture made of welded scrap metal, the hinge on my refrigerator, an old manual typewriter, and a broken music box in a cardboard Christmas tree. I developed some sound processing techniques on this piece that I like quite a bit and will be exploring in the future.
