SONICAUDIOVISUALSERIES – episode VIIII
ZAIMPH is the solo project of ambient noise artist Marcia Bassett.
Although legendary for white-hot guitar and vocal brutality, Zaimph´s recent recordings and performances infuse cracked-raga song structures with dense electronic and synthesizer drones to create soundscapes where a lurking apocalypse is eclipsed by shimmering, meditative beauty.
As a co-founder of Philadelphia´s shambolic psychonauts un and tectonic drone pioneers Double Leopards, Bassett is deeply entwined with the American noise underground, and has mapped regions still only dimly understood by subsequent sonic travelers.
CONCERN is Gordon Wilson Ashworth, the man behind the legendary Oscillating Innards, member of Knelt Rote and proprietor of Iatrogenesis Records.
Using only acoustic sources and field recordings, Concern creates massive, emotionally-resonant drone pieces magnified by the fragility of magnetic tape. more under: soundcloud.com/concern
