Electroacoustic Sludge Dither Transformation Smear Grind Decomposition nO!se File Exchange Mega Edit is the long-awaited collaboration from two of the world's finest purveyors of noise, electroacoustics, and top-shelf audio mayhem. Having met at the legendary Tokyo venue 20000 Volts in 1997, Russell Haswell and Pain Jerk (Kohei Gomi) stayed in touch with the intent to collaborate at some point in the future. This was eventually realized in 2012 when they were offered a gig to play together at the Rammel Club in Nottingham. Prior to the show they exchanged files of solo recordings, as a means of forming a basis for what was initially conceived as an "extreme duet tag mass attack." It was here that the foundation was laid for the epic extreme end-result we now encounter. The Nottingham performance was recorded and both parties took away the results in addition to their solo recordings to re-edit and re-send, back and forth, for two years, re-editing and re-contextualizing these original sounds. The results of this extended collaboration is a punk academic collision which utilizes advanced computer music techniques and analog/digital modular synthesizer splurge, along with the more basic and belligerent frequencies found in distortion and feedback. This can also be read as a study of editing in all forms; hyper-editing, editing in pop music, editing in dance culture, electro-acoustic editing, the editing techniques used in musique concrète, editing used in film and advertising along with the notion of gaps -- the audible and inaudible. A blistering 2CD collision of transformation, technique, ideas and form which resides equally in the advanced fields of electroacoustic study and the high energy freeform noise from which both practitioners sprung.
