BIOGRAPHY : In Hungary Gyorgy Turoczy aka mortum found himself addicted to analog modular synthesizers so he decided to launch a project which deals with drones and noises in 1997. After several tape recordings in 1999 he realized that he could create more sophisticated and interesting soundscapes if he add field recordings and sampler workings to the analog noise carpets. In 2001 Stone Wired had been already released 2 demo CD-r albums and gained some respect and name in the Hungarian underground Noise and more preferably Industrial scene. Two years later in 2003 one man called D-mon from United States joined the project. For the first years they worked separately sending each other their part of the songs via the internet. At first it seemed it was really hard to collaborate from a significant distance but they still could manage to release the project most claimed album, Proto-Culture. The founder of STONED WIRED mortum finally moved to the United States and the Death Nightmare took its rampage on the world!
REVIEW : STONE WIRED is a versatile project and achieves good results in different sound languages, and in this particular case it is evident that noise / industrial is a fertile soil for their seeds. "Proto-culture" is a dip in icy waters, an apology for it is most obscure in humans. Noise / Industrial has a way of transporting the listener to another world that is both awe inspiring and potentially very dangerous. This is the debut and first album. STONE WIRED have stayed true to their name, creating a portal to somewhere else, a terrifying world of disconnection, reflected in the metaphor of the Kali Yuga. The most frightening part is, that world is here. It is no great surprise that this hungarian project is incorporating aspects of ambient, drone and field recordings. Perhaps due to central europeen character, or maybe a genetic code due to a relation between the germanic and slavic tribes that descended from the ancestral traditions. In fact, hungarian culture and language nobody knows where and when started, just these are a descendend of indo-euopeen culture. Listen to in the dark, notice the textures and nuances. Simply enjoy with the slow, dosed and controlated noise, primitive rhythmic industrial and some ambient / drone touches. No more!
