ATARI TEENAGE RIOT (abbreviated ATR) is a German digital hardcore group formed in Berlin in 1992. The name was taken from a Portuguese Joe song entitled "Teenage Riot" from the album "Teen-age Riot", with the word 'Atari' added as an Atari ST computer was used to create compositions. Highly political, they fused anarchist, anti-fascist and anti-nazi views with punk vocals and the newly emerging techno sound called digital hardcore, which is a term band member Alec Empire used as the name of his record label. The group was founded as an attack on the Neo-Nazi subculture by fusing hardcore punk views with German techno; it consisted of three Berliners - Alec Empire, Hanin Elias and MC Carl Crack. ATR's early releases (which included the track "Hetzjagd Auf Nazis!"/"Hunt Down the Nazis!") were surrounded by controversy in Germany.

Apart Torturing Nurse there are other good and interesting projects such as: Good For Nothing, Claustrophobia or Most of The Taciturn.

HUBERT HEATHERTOES































https://f1.bcbits.com/img/a2776303794_2.jpg"Entice"
Year:  2015
Country:  New Zealand
City:  Nelson
Label:  Astipalea rec.
Format:  CD
Tracks:  8
Time:  48 min.
Genre:  electroacoustic
Style:    Field Recordings       Noise




























HUBERT HEATHERTOES is an interdisciplinary artist from Nelson (New Zealand) who revolving around many different media. His work although trying to capture different areas of interest focuses on the experiences of transcendental and spiritual nature according to the motto about ever happening transformation in terms of molecular processes, reincarnation, oneironautical dream experience, vast terrain of absurdity that surrounds us. As a linguist he approaches music and other media with grammatical dexterity of incomprehensive surprises and disastrous dychotomy between autistic alienation and the idiom of overexpresiveness. Since 2014 he manages “Astipalea Records” and a number of musical b-side projects such as: Igloodoom, Lumber and more. This album is a set of eight tracks which he composed over a period of 2014 which include some of the field recordings from New Zealand, Australia, Turkey and UK in various locations.

REZ EPO
































http://www.controlvalve.net/thumbs/RE.jpg"Xantp"
Year:  2011
Country:  Poland
City:  Kielce (Świętokrzyskie)
Artist:  Konrad Materek
Label:  Control Valve rec.
Format:  EP
Tracks:  1
Time: 17 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:    Drone      Noise




























ACCORDING TO THE ARTIST: "i began to make noise sometime around 2005-2006, under a different alias. since then, my sound evolved from crude and rather crunchy digital (at that time all my recordings were made on laptop with Audiomulch as my main tool) loops to slightly more refined, drony landscapes with some ambient and noise elements still present. for the time being i mostly focus on further developing my sound and gathering ideas for a full-length material, hopefully to come out this year. i also run my own diy label - chaosynod -  in which majority of my works is released... and i hate writing bios...










GEAR: the cornerstone of my sound are two signal generators: a no-input mixer (crappy behringer one) and electro-harmonix flanger hoax, the latter just working on its own, no fx loop whatsoever. both signals are then processed with up to 5 different effects, most often RAK phaser, ibanez chorus/flanger (the one with really neat 'turbo' switch), occasionally boss oc-2 octaver, and the last but not least - digitech digiverb and digidelay, both of which i always place at the end of the chain. i try to avoid using distortion of any kind, since my experience is that it tends to flatten the whole sound and make certain details simply inaudible. i prefer to finish each track in a single take, so the whole process actually involves a good deal of rehearsing. subsequently, everything's recorded in audacity and edited/mastered in adobe audition".

LOUISE VIND NIELSEN



































"Twentyfive minutes"
Year:  2015
Country:   Denmark
City:   Copenhagen
Artist:  Louise Vind Nielsen
Label:  none
Format:  net
Tracks:  1
Time:  25 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:     Drone      Noise






















This twentyfive minute track is recorded in by bedroom in one-take. I was wearing headphones while playing my beloved Roland SH-101 synthesizer through a cheap digital delay-pedal and a mini guitar-amplifier (Since I didn't have my own mixer at that time). One of the best Louise's release but the best at date. This only one track is not harsh noise than other recordings but more drone / ambient oriented. No silence, no stop, music / sounds non-stop and not bored at all. Sometimes remind me instead a "Roland SH-101" the instrument was an electronic and distorted bass guitar, some kind of bass lines but modulated and distorted.

Label:  none

Tracks:  4
Time:  23 min.
Genre:  electronic

Kulsort (Danish: Black like coal, meaning: completely dark or very dirty) is one-woman synthetic noise drones and dark minimal something. These tracks are all one-takes recorded in my bedroom. I was wearing headphones while playing on my Roland SH-101 synthesizer through a cheap digital delay-pedal and a mini guitar-amplifier (Since I didn't have my own mixer at that time). Hope you'll enjoy! NB! In some parts (e.g. Five minutes love of bass) the frequenzes are so low that you might not hear them on your integrated computer speakers. Use headphones or a decent sound system.
