Over the summer D.N.P has been working with Ade Bordicott aka Mutate to provide you with something dark and wonderful. The result is this… D.N.P vs Mutate ‘There was no future after all…’ Plans for a second collaboration with Mutate are already in the pipeline. Sit back, relax and immerse yourself. Thanks to Ade for providing some awesome drones and to Rune Martinsen and Øystein Jorgensen at Petroglyph Music.

“First release from Birmingham collaborators D.N.P. & Mutate, There Was No Future After All is
a truly bleak affair that runs the gamut, from caustic atmospheres to compelling soundscapes.”

Thanks to Sonologyst for reviewing ‘The Nikolayev Effect’ in the ‘Unexplained Sounds’ Facebook group

Minimal ambient noise track made in collaboration between D.N.P. and David Duell. Music fits very well, not just for spoken words, the atmospheres we could expect from a movie soundtrack, based on the controversial hypothetic russian experiment, known as The Nikolayev effect. Here’s a link to know something about this experiment. Very cinematic and enigmatic. Unexplained Sounds ! ***1/2

D.N.P joins forces once again with David Duell to perform our interpretation of the infamous creepypasta ‘The Russian Sleep Experiment’. Pure horror. Thanks again to David for providing the vocals.

I am proud to announce the release of ‘Rotting Away’ on the superb Petroglyph label. Download free through bandcamp or the Internet Archive

The absence of light occurs everywhere. Every day we feel the impact of its unsympathetic
tendrils….and with the darkness….fear, revulsion and horror reveals itself….

These tracks were recorded January – September 2014 in the post-industrial
surroundings of Birmingham, UK.

The cover shows an image of the former Central Library of Birmingham,
currently scheduled for demolition.

It was an honour to be asked to record some tracks exclusive to the superb PhantomCircuit.com internet radio show. These tracks appeared on Show #136.

During the summer of 2014 D.N.P created 4 remix EPs for Futile Escapist Front’s collaborative charity project to raise money and awareness for ‘The Eye Fund’ who provide much needed counselling and aid to those who are losing their sight due to degenerative diseases. D.N.P’s remixes are free however please donate any amount no matter how small to www.eyefund.info as this is what the remix project is all about. Their Paypal link is on their homepage.

For full details and if you wish to be involved please check out the source tracks at soundcloud.com/flesheatingfoundation/sets/futile-escapist-front-for-eye-fund-source-tracks

The overall theme is one of the oppressiveness of losing your vision. The sounds are not meant to be pleasant.

“The elusive D.N.P has worked magic once again, to provide beautifully bleak, relentless soundscapes to the spoken word of David Duell (ex Fade to Sepia/Bombers). While Duell delivers his nightmarish prose and poetry calmly, but inexorably, D.N.P has created a haunting world of industrial isolation, that truly makes the experience an immersive one”

Cover art – Unchanging Window (acrylic on canvas 2011), by Robin Pugh robinpugh.wix.com/slinky-art creator of the darkest paintings I’ve ever seen. Buy his paintings…make him a star….

A live recording made 27/02/2014 straight off the mixing desk. This was the final rehearsal for the D.N.P live debut at City Tavern, Birmingham, UK the following evening.

A few small glitches and errors notably a desk overload at about 15 mins in for a few seconds but that’s the fun and unpredictability of performing live and rehearsing to get it right.

Beatless, desolate, lost sounds. This album was composed entirely using Virtual ANS.

The ANS synthesizer is a photoelectronic musical instrument created by Russian engineer Evgeny Murzin from 1937 to 1957. The technological basis of his invention was the method of graphical sound recording used in cinematography (developed in Russia concurrently with USA), which made it possible to obtain a visible image of a sound wave, as well as to realize the opposite goal—synthesizing a sound from an artificially drawn sound spectrogram. – from Wikipedia

I thought this was an original idea until I discovered that Coil released a triple album of ANS noise back in 2004. Oh well.

Recorded Nov 2013 – May 2014 in between other projects.

Doom….I was obsessed with it for a number of years. The first person shooter that really hit the spot and spawned many imitators.

Browsing through the internet one day I found a complete set of original Doom SFX wav files. They were sitting on my hard drive for a while when I thought “lets see what these can do” Feeding them through a sampler and sequencer I created the opening track to this album ‘Deimos Anomaly’, the rest just came naturally.

The rules were simple:-
1. All sounds in the album must originate from a Doom sound effect
2. I can do anything to the sounds e.g. cut em, loop em, slow em down, play em backwards, add effects, etc as long as they are original Doom SFX.

This is the result of my experiment. IDDQD=GOD. All track names are taken from the various levels of the game. IDDQD was the notorious cheat code which made you invincible, hence ‘God’ mode.

Hardcore gamers amongst you will recognise many of the noises contained within, however many sounds have been twisted beyond recognition.

Big ups to Bobby Prince who created the original Doom SFX back in the early 1990s. I hope he likes what I’ve done to his work.
