Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

Chefkirk is Roger Smith. Working under the inclusive category of experimental noise, Chefkirk creates distinctive compositions of sound by combining together improvised drone and harsh electronics forced from a minimal arsenal of the feedback mixing board +/or sampler/microcassette/or oscillator/location recordings. Chefkirk makes his music in Eugene, Oregon, North America.

S27E152 is a moniker for the solo net based work of Brisbane based sound and visual artist Tristan Eyles. Exploiting the historical links made between sound and vision within the arts, Eyles utilizes methods of field recording and image synthesis to create soundscapes focusing on the duality of the human experience. Streams and Industrial Machines is among the more vague in terms of concept, though was inspired by the idea of waste and human consumption, as well as the imagery in Alan Aldridge, Steve Boyett and Maxine Miller's The Gnole.
