BASTARD NOISE + CHRISTIAN RENOU
Country: US , France
Time: 70 min.
Style: Noise Experimental
Two of the most prolific and inventive noise musicians from the past decade have merged and delivered BRAINSTORMING. Both abstract and impressionistic, each piece inspires a concrete vision by association. BRAINSTORMING is an autodidact in acoustics and and organic recording techniques. Bastard Noise creates noise at its best with an orchestra of home spun instruments and loads of lo-fi electronics, field recordings and power electronics. Formally known as Brume, Christian Renou has consistently been one of the most interesting musicians of the mid-80s home-taper scene. Renou has won himself a place of his own with his crossover between collage, electro-acoustics and noise.

Bastard Noise coexisted along side the power violence group Man Is The Bastard since June of 1991. When M.I.T.B. met its demise Bastard Noise gained strength from its earliest audio offerings of caveman electronics and vocals. Since then Bastard Noise has evolved into its current contemporary status. John Wiese has existed as a member of Bastard Noise from 1999 to 2004 and has contributed to evolve Bastard Noise into a predatory galactic monster, with more than 40 releases, by combining Bastard Noise's original caveman electronic roots with its new atmospheric sounds. Eric Wood and W.T. Nelson was then accompanied by artists who each developed the music of Bastard Noise. The recent return of Joel Connell and Danny Walker's arrival put into verse with the rediscovery for the group of the sound of Man Is The Bastard.
