Thigpen, Benjamin – “Divide By Zero” – [Sub Rosa Us]

Like the cover of this album, the music is harsh, violent and extreme. Pure blasting noise. From his website: ‘His music is concerned with issues of energy, density, complexity, movement, simultaneity and violence, and he often works extensively with space as a primary compositional parameter.’ I love loud, ear draining, eyeball melting noise, but it has to still have a flow to it, which this does. It comes it short spurts, then mellows out into a cooldown of empty drone before gradually coming back with even more force. Great for those wanting to experiment with the dark side of sound, as this covers some ground for the “white walls” of electronics. Burning wires to electronic “birds” to burning pits of hell.
