Blue Sausage Infant
is the work of Chester Hawkins of Washington DC. Since 1986, BSI has produced music that combines aspects of noise, drone, Krautrock, dark ambient, and analog kosmische electronics to produce a deep feast for the brain. Hawkins describes his music as "mean-spirited euphoria," an improvised form of psychedelia with a glaze of paranoid tension. BSI's 2011 album "Negative Space" was nominated for France's Qwartz Award for experimental music.
Tag Cloud started in 2009 as a series of experiments with field recordings and has come to include analog electronics, fx, cheap keyboards, metal percussion, shruti box, etc. Best described as "electroacoustic sound sculpture and carpets of drone". Releases to date include Vol. 13 of the remix project "14 Versions of the Same EP" on the Front & Follow label (look for a follow up for the "Collision/Detection" series in collaboration with BLK w/Bear) and the album "Named Entities" on Zeromoon.
