Artist Biographies:

"Chester Hawkins (Washington DC) has performed a wide range of experimental music since 1985. His most well-known project was BLUE SAUSAGE INFANT, being an exercise in musique concrète and loop-collage, which later expanded to embrace drone, krautrock, psychedelia, noise, and sonically intense live performances. After 28 years, the BSI project was retired and new works continue under his own name, crafting dynamic adventures in sound with a more focused and wholly electronic approach.

Hawkins has released music under the imprints Alrealon Musique, Zeromoon, and his own Intangible Arts. Past collaborators include Insect Factory, Violet, Tag Cloud, Haunted Toilet, Changes to Blind, New Carrollton, Lida Husik, and Stolen Government Binder Clip."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The Metabolism Quartet is a mixture of two live performances in Washington DC: one recorded in isolation at Intangible Arts' studio (4th September 2018) and one in public at Rhizome community arts space (8th September 2018). Both events were improvised autopsies of Lutoslawski's String Quartet by means of three granular synth engines and one tape-edit/concrete emulator. Thus, the original Quartet was reduced to a malleable clay and reconstructed by a neutral, synthetic quartet "conducted" by touch controls. This technique was accompanied by live lapsteel guitar and a prepared collage of field recordings from locations crucial to my youth. In this way the original Quartet was "metabolized" and reborn with a hybrid identity, neither Lutoslawski's nor my own. All live manipulations and performances by Hawkins. Many thanks to those present at the Rhizome performance."-Intangible Arts
