Some people equate Envenomist with science fiction film scores, and others envision solitary nocturnal travels through bleak urban settings, but a fundamental strength of Envenomist is that these illusory backdrops remain open to interpretation. Taking inspiration from industrial, ambient, and the kosmische scenes along with altered states of consciousness, the oceanic abyss, and deep space; David Reed has been producing desolate soundscapes under the Envenomist moniker since 2005. Highlights in the discography include Abyssal Siege, Bound Dominions, and Bleeding Out.
Tag Cloud (Chris Videll) started in 2009 as a series of obscure experiments with field recordings and has come to include analog electronics, fx, cheap keyboards, metal percussion, shruti box, etc. Best described at this point as "electroacoustic sound sculpture and carpets of drone".
A surreal form of a love letter, Nate Scheible delivers a heart-rending album with the found poetry of “Fairfax”. Rather loose in its temperament and adherence to traditional song structure, the album incorporates a wide variety of stylistic choices. Found tape recorded messages, noir jazz, ambience, drone, field recordings, these all rest at the very core of the album. The taped recorded pieces convey an unknowable level of yearning. By letting these pieces sprawl out and breathe, the narrative becomes clearer. Various rhythms and cadences are brought into the fray to further emphasize the yearning of the speaker.
Ordet is the dark industrial project of Evana Roman (Richmond)
