about

NEXICON was essentially Lee Bartow, Tim Spann and I together in a room full of analog and digital music equipment. We recorded numerous sessions that ranged from ambient bliss to grindcrushing blast furnace. During this time, we structured some of the material for a handful of live shows. After my departure from the US, I worked on the recordings further and edited an entire album worth of material that became LIFE EMITTING DIODE. However, there was still plenty of recorded audio worth dealing with. Some session material found its way into the recordings of NAVICON TORTURE TECHNOLOGIES. I struggled with the remaining material as not all of it permitted formatting it into "tracks". A version of an album surfaced in 2010 titled OFFAL. It was intended as a gapless album to capture some of the encapsulated insanity of our sessions. Sometimes it takes a while to reconsider the approach to one's own source material. OFFAL-NACHLESE therefore features a selection of isolated tracks as they were, in addition to a compressed session-composition that reflects how we worked at the time: in anarchic mode, triggered by sample cues, always layering, overloading, drifting outward. Take RAVEN TRESSED CONQUEROR: there were numerous attempts at recreating this track, yet I eventually returned to the initial session recording. Further, there is a live recording from a show we played as a trio and eventually expanded to a quintet with the support of our friends EDGEY and REPOLOGEN. The two NEXICON tracks released on the SIMPLE THINGS ARE OFTEN MONSTROUS 12" vinyl record are included here as well. mk 2020
