The last track from D.N.P’s ‘237‘ album ‘You’re all cunts’ is featured alongside artists such as Merzbow, Einsturzende Neubauten and Nine inch nails in this ‘Noise music’ special edition of Electronic Oddities podcast. Many thanks for the inclusion!

Coming soon, D.N.P – Transmissions In Extremis.

Similar in concept to my previous album IDDQD=GOD dnpdarkness.bandcamp.com/album/iddqd-godwhere all source audio were samples taken from the original version of the game ‘Doom’. ‘Transmissions In Extremis’ uses only samples of shortwave transmissions/static/noise as its source sounds. The results I hope are eerie and unsettling.
I recorded dozens of samples using the University of Twente’s WebSDR receiver, a fascinating tool. It can be found at websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/m.html and I thank them immensely. I also thank ‘The Conet Project’ archive.org/details/ird059 for recordings of extinct ‘number stations’ that I have also used.

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.
