An evening of heavy electronics, innovative drone, ritual ambient doom and industrial music, from international pioneers of hardware and noise.
— Author & Punisher (USA)
The solo project of Tristan Shone, a mechanical engineer who wandered from native Boston to California to pursue his
artistic interests. He ended up using his scientific skills to build custom musical instruments, which give added depth to the term «industrial».
The mechanical processes that give life to the music aim to reproduce the rhythms of industrial machinery and its relationship to their human operators; a merging of the flesh and the steel.
We've enjoyed him at Roadburn Festival and at The Underworld Camden last year and are excited to Author & Punisher has now joined the famed court of Relapse Records, with an album due to be released this summer.
— Trepaneringsritualen (SWE)
This solo visionary explores themes of religion, magick and the occult realms of consciousness, taking musical cues from the old school of ritual ambient and death industrial. Rhythmic and seething at times, oozing forward with a creeping sense of desolation, Trepaneringsritualen conjures forth bleak but mesmerising visions of the end-times.
