Zeitkratzer - The Noise Chamber

German chamber orchestra Zeitkratzer  are far from a conventional  chamber orchestra- since the late 1990ís the nine piece project have created their own distinctive takes on  a wide range of experimental sonic genres & respected artists from with-in those genres: moving from Reinterpretation of British power electronics icons Whitehouse, through to their take on Lou Reedís classic noise work Metal Machine music, onto covering the work of  20th Century avant-garde composers such as John Cage & Alvin Lucier, through to new collaborations with the likes of Keiji Haino, Carsten Nicolai, Terre Thaemlitz, etc. Over the years the players with the collective have changed, but always at the centre of the project is German pianist and composer Reinhold Friedl. Reinhold kindly agreed to give M[m], an email interview.


Vomir - Of Black Bags, unrelenting walled noise, & total sonic nihilism
Itís fair to say that Vomir is one the most known, respected, and influential names with-in walled noise. The project was started in 2006 by French man Romain Perrot, and has since gone onto release a truly huge & highly prolific back catalogue, which must be now be moving towards the 200+ plus mark. The projects focus has always remained the same- creating unmoving, crude & unforgiving HNW.  Below youíll find the third M[m] interview with the project, as we chart the projects last four years.
Tissa Mawartyassari - The Red Angel Of Wall
Tissa Mawartyassari is the solo wall noise project of Monica Isabel Sanchez. An important component of the world renowned Texas noise scene, the project emerged close to 10 years ago and has been creating dark and creative sounds ever since. We interviewed the  project back in 2010 & now 5 more years have passed and with a slew of fantastic releases coming out recently we felt it was high time for a 2nd Tissa Mawartyassari interview. so Monica  kindly agreed to a email interview.
Yen Pox - Dark Masters
Itís fair to say that Yen Pox are one of the most respected & influential projects with-in the Dark ambient genre. The project started life in 1993, bringing  together the joint dark sonic talents of Michael J.V.Hensley and Steven Hall. Over the projects twenty  two year existence they have released a fairly minimal catalogue( three full lengths, one full length collaborations, and a few eps/ singles)- but each of these have been consistent & genre defining moments. Just a few months ago they  released their latest full length release Between The Horizon And The Abyss on Malignant Records, and  this has rightly received universal praise, and is yet another genre classic. Michael & Steven kindly agreed to give M[m] an email interview discussing their twenty plus year collaboration, the new album, and beyond.
D.S.W.A.C.V - Doomed Wall-making

 D.S.W.A.C.V is one of the  key projects in the recently growing & blossoming  UK walled noise scene. Itís  based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, and started in late 2012; and has so far  has putting out around  20 plus releases that take in CDRís, splits & digital releases.  It offers up HNW/ doom wall sound that mixes  in elements of ritual ambience. The projects one & only member is L.M, and he kindly agreed to give M[m] an email interview.


Stephen Thrower - Horror & Sleaze Fed Cinematic Passions

Stephen Thrower first became known & respected for his work within the British post-Industrial experimental music scene; working with Coil between 1984 and 1993, then Cyclobe from the late 1990ís to the present day. But in more recent years he has become more recognized  for his writing & commentary on the cult horror & exploitation film genres. His written work has seen him pen lengthy tomes on infamous Italian  gory  maestro Lucio Fulci (1999ís Beyond Terror: The Films of Lucio Fulci). American Independent horror films from between the 1970ís & mid 1980ís (2007ís Nightmare USA: The Untold Story of the Exploitation Independents), and most recently highly prolific euro sleaze/ horror director Jess Franco( 2015ís Murderous Passions: The Delirious Cinema of Jesus Franco vol. one). He has also appeared on a whole host of cult horror/exploitation documentaries & DVD extraís- such as Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide parts 1 & 2- where he gave informative and often amusing commentary/ critique on a whole host of cult films. Stephen kindly agreed to give M[m] an email interview discussing his written work - this is the second time weíve interviewed Stephen, and his first interview (where the focus was more on his sonic endeavors) can be found here.
