Towers Of Silence
Update Band Bio
Nathan Groth- all guitars, bass, analog & digital synths, rhodes, farfisa, cheesy string programming, glitchy drums, circuit bent devices, arduinome weirdness, bird noises, effects, scotch.
Ryan Gruss provided raw drums on tracks 3, 6 & 10 on the Modulation Whale album, which were further chopped, diced and reconfigured by me. (Thanks Ryan!)
Check out my other RPM projects from past years, Text Offenders and Carnival Photographs. I also play on a few of the many albums by Guy Capecelatro III and I contributed tape loops, SCI Pro-One, drums, rhodes and general weirdness to Nemo Culpa. My 2006 submission is sadly lost to the digital dustbin (probably for the best, though)

10 short ditties that cover lots of ground. Some guitar, some analog synth and plenty of effects. Seriously.
All noise and distortion is intentional. Well, almost all noise, that is.
Mostly written and recorded during the last weekend of the month, this album turned out darker and murkier than I had anticipated, but I'm OK with that. I like dark and murky. It admittedly doesn't hold together as a cohesive album, it's more of an exploration of some different concepts that I had rattling around in my head.
A few notable, uh, notes- Stereo Music For SK1 uses a circuit bent Casio SK1 as the sole sound source. Likewise, Stereo Music for Gyil uses my Ghanaian Gyil (a marimba-like instrument) as the only sound source. Stereo Music for Crystal Glassware, as you can imagine, uses crystal glassware as the only sound source. The track Pyongyang Metro uses my arduinome and MLRV 2.0 to mash up some North Korean jamz, and has actual field recordings made in the Pyongyang metro buried underneath it all (much like the metro itself). Thanks for listening
