Outro Song - Iszoloscope "Relevance Outside Logic"

http://www.iszoloscope.net/

 

Yann Faussurier has been making music under the moniker iszoloscope since 1999, crafting pulsing, pounding soundscapes with a core of industrial, hard-core, break-core and rhythmic noise layered with intelligent and often surprising details, such as melodic percussions and carefully placed breaks, rich, orchestral textures and dark, cinematic distortions.  Experimental in nature and charged with energy, the music evokes a darkness, tension and atmosphere which immediately carries the listener away on an immersive, complex journey of introspection. 

 

Founded as a collaboration in 1999, iszoloscope became Faussurier’s solo project in 2001.  Since then, the project has amassed an impressive oeuvre: 7 full-length albums on European labels Ant-Zen and Spectre, 8 successful tours in Europe and North America, several EPs and collaborations, a long list of remixes and compilations, and appearances at shows and festivals around the world, including a regular spot on the lineup at Germany’s Maschinenfest. In recent years, iszoloscope's live and studio lineup has also included Shane Whitbread, Guillaume Nadon and Frédéric Scarfone.

Controlled Bleeding is an experimental music group based in Long Island, New York. The group was founded by Paul Lemos, the group's only consistent member. Most of Controlled Bleeding's released recordings feature two main collaborators, Chris Moriarty and vocalist Joe Papa, who both passed away in the late 2000s.

Since their first full-length release, Knees and Bones, in 1983, Controlled Bleeding have released a number of albums spanning several different genres, many of which were released on notable independent labels. Their cross-genre approach combined with the out-of-print status of many of the group's early releases is reminiscent of the work of other experimental groups of the 80s and 90s such as Coil and Swans. But Bleeding continues today, creating strange new works, perhaps the most challenging of their long career.

In 2016 the group signed with Toronto-based Artoffact Records to reissue their extensive discography, as well as to release their first all-new studio album in over 10 years, Larva Lumps & Baby Bumps. The release received praise from Pitchfork, the Wall Street Journal, Outburn Magazine, Decibel Magazine, and many other reputable media outlets.

 

Following 2016’s much-lauded Larva Lumps & Baby Bumps, Controlled Bleeding returns now with Carving Songs, a massive remix album totaling 20 tracks, including a 21st track, TROD, a brand new Controlled Bleeding composition which founder Paul Lemos referred to as “a really a major piece for us… a VERY dark song.” 
 
The hand-picked cast of remixers includes Japanese noise-guru MerzbowJustin K. Broadrick from industrial-metal act Godflesh(not to mention Jesu), as well as MonolakeRamlehChild Bite, and many others. Even notorious experimental guitarist (and current Lydia Lunch Retrovirus member) Weasel Walter makes an appearance. 
 
The remixes range from straight up power noise, to post-black metal, to industrial-influenced beats, and are as varied as Controlled Bleeding itself, a project known for being impossible to classify. An essential release in the long, storied history of one of America’s foremost experimenters.

our musical impulses, finding new organic sounds and much more.
