PETE SWANSON

Once a member of the Yellow Swans, who focused on guitar based noise and drones, Pete Swanson has carved out his own particular niche since going solo. His debut album A Man With Potential focused on a peculiar junction between noise and techno, creating a wall of sound that borrowed heavily from both genres but actually, in the end, created its own unnameable bastard. His most recent work continues to develop this child, taking it to unexplored reaches resulting in something truly unique that attacks every one of your senses.

BEN NASH

Natural Snow Buildings collaborator and sometime member of Chora, Ben Nash produces all manner of expansive sounds from celestial drones and shimmering ragas to lacerating scrapes. After experimenting with Tenori-On emulators he’s just produced a record of gyrating psyche for Blackest Rainbow.
