Various Artists - “Noise vs. Subversive Computing”

COMPUTATIONALLY INFEASIBLE RECORDS #001

"Noise vs. Subversive Computing"

“Noise vs. Subversive Computing”

This is the “Noise vs. Subversive Computing” Project: A Collaborative release split between
Noise/Experimental Artists and Subversive Technologists/Computer Hackers. Ten representatives from each camp were asked to contribute a piece of work which could be anything at all: an audio track, a drawing, a written passage, software, video, combination of all that, or anything else that can be converted to binary. The Noisicians had “Subversive Computing” as their central theme, and the Technologists worked with “Noise”.

This is the outcome:

NOISE:

0. BBBlood (UK) - Bicep Venoms Gut Virus [AUDIO]
1. Config.sys (DE) - Bit Bucket [AUDIO]
2. Family Battle Snake (DE) – Black Hat [AUDIO]
3. Francisco Lopez (ES) – Untitled #223 [AUDIO]
4. GEN 26 (SI) - Untitled [AUDIO]
5. Hellboy106 (GR) - stgzknmhtrka [IMAGE+AUDIO]
6. ILIOS (GR) - 4000 cevaloj kriegas Mi ami Vi [AUDIO]
7. KOMMPOUND (GR) - Softmod Exploit [AUDIO+WORDS]
8. La Jacquerie (IT) – Re: If you're angry don’t [AUDIO]
9. Sarah's Charity (DK) - Colour of Clarity [AUDIO]

SUBVERSIVE COMPUTING:

0. Ach3n0r (GR) - Noise Steganography [SOFTWARE]
1. Ashrae |tosh & KaOS| (BE/DK) - Netglitch [AUDIO+WORDS]
2. E (US) - Sifting through the Noise [WORDS]
3. EK (UK) - Rainbow [AUDIO]
4. G0rg0g0l (GR) - Gorgogoogle: Web, Search, Noise [SOFTWARE]
5. Gorrrrgar (RO) - My kind of Shithole [PHOTOGRAPHY MATRIX+WORDS]
6. Jazra Khaleed (GR) - Noise [POEM]
7. Pascal Cretain (DK) - Information Pollution [VIDEO]
8. Rodrigo Marcos (UK) - MySQL Sounds [VIDEO+SOFTWARE]
9. Stelios Douskos (US) - LawyerFish [SOFTWARE]

The merger is truly fascinating; explosive to say the least. The radical thinkers at work in here
have the momentum, the mindset and the technical skills to crash Adaptive Firewalls, defy traditional definitions of music, “hack” live performance semantics and bypass Intrusion Detection Systems. Only this is not Cyberspace. We are subtly injecting polymorphic shellcode into your reality, brainwashing you with white noise and reverse engineering your obsolete modus operandi.

Alas; you can’t pull the plug.

LAUNDRY ROOM SQUELCHERS are a seriously legendary Miami Beach noise outfit featuring Rat Bastard and a revolving cast of non-geek noise enthusiasts like Leslie Keffer and Doug Ferguson which join the lineup on this Euro tour. The band no longer offer their music for sale to the public choosing to concentrate on their super intense, often chaotic, always insane live performance. Expect detuned radios, vocal terror, amp swinging and of course the unexpected. Dylan Nyoukis borrowed the title of one of their songs called ‘Colours Out Of Space’ for his Brighton-based festival of a similar name, where they played in the UK for the first time last year. They're bringing to London their on-going International Noise Conference project, which sees the band host a blitzkrieg party of local improvisers. The only rules are self imposed - All acts play short 15 minutes or less flash sets. No laptops, no mixers and no droning!

Harsh, tumbling electronics, shields of venom and damaged vocals.

Ecstatic brain wrangle and ranging immortal disco.

The rhythmic conundrum from Clunes gone solo and even odder, like a pool of aching custard sound.

Wrong-footed pop music with disaffected drums and spooked vocalisations.

MV from Leopard Leg / Hex Tapes et al. joined with Niki from other combined project Universal Orders (RIP) laying down some distressing guitar brutality.

Thanks to those who came out and supported us at last night's show in Stockwell.

Those who couldn't make it missed 5 solid noise acts at a good loud venue for just £3!! I really enjoyed every band and had fun playing. We might put on more shows, who knows.
