MK9: the current project of Michael Nine, began in the latter half of 2001. Proceeding the end of the controversial and confrontational performances as the renowned project Death Squad, MK9 brings the initiation of a different level of psychological intrusion. Through video projection and audio constructions and performance, MK9 continues to investigate the varying aspects of extreme emotional states interrelated with the human condition and psyche.
Under the appellation Death Squad, Michael Nine has performed extensively across the globe. In 1992 he founded Spastik Kommunikations, a record label dedicated to documenting and releasing works from Death Squad and parallel projects. With the inception of his new project a new record label evolved, “Neural Operations”. Which became more suited to the current activities, performances and recordings.
Since 1992, Michael Nine has released and produced over 40 solo and compilation audio/video works which have been distributed internationally. Starting in 1995 he began touring and has performed nearly 300 shows around the world.
The manipulated and presented video, sound and performance will address issues and perspectives dealing with the participants specific ever changing states of psychology and perception of society.
Con-Dom: stands for Control-Domination, and is the one-man industrial noise band of Mike Dando. Con-Dom explores any kind of social tensions and control: political, religious, racial, with an acid, violent and uncompromising attitude. He is well-known in the industrial scene for his furious ravaging vocals and the devastating live performances, in which he turns into a real stage animal.
Content Nullity: is one of the youngest projects in the power electronics scene, hailing from the rural and desolate county of Dorset. A deeply personal expression of negativity and frustration cast from the mould of day-to-day mundanity is represented with scathing, hard electronics and scrap metal abuse. After only a few years of activities, with one full length album and several small-scale releases the project promises an obsessively bleak future of output to come. Nullity is absolute.
The Digitariat: knows what it is to live in a rich man’s house, because we live in it, like a slave lives in a rich man’s house. From a world of wage slavery, mindless consumerism and unsophisticated sexual relations comes The Digitariat. Dynamic noise songs with Yorkshireman yelling vocals making a rallying call in the pursuit of joy against the odds.
Cementimental - Harsh noise - circuit bending - rough music
Cremation Lily - The past year or so has seen Maths member Zen Zsigo take the UK power electronics underground by storm, with his cassettes of decidedly personal and different noise.
