Review at BOF-062

CDRX a citizen of Elgaland-Vargaland began making music in 1996. He started as Cereal Killer and does audio manipulation and mixes using sound bites, field recordings, loops, distortions and harsh noise. CDRX has created and released a number of cds via his own label Bad For Health Records. "I listen to a lot of industrial, ambient and concrete music but also metal, folk and pop."

He takes his inspiration from the likes of Nurse With Wound, Pierre Henry, Final and Aidan Baker and many more.

There are experiences that most of us are hesitant to speak about, because they do not conform to everyday reality and defy rational explanation. These are not particular external occurrences, but rather events of our inner lives, which are generally dismissed as figments of the imagination and barred from our memory. Suddenly, the familiar view of our surroundings is transformed in a strange, delightful, or alarming way: it appears to us in a new light, takes on a special meaning. Such an experience can be as light and fleeting as a breath of air, or it can imprint itself deeply upon our minds.

Review at BOF-061

This album, a collaboration between Seetyca and Christian Doil is a submarine journey through the ocean of the mind. In the first half seetyca dives with the listener into unfathomable, dark romantic and poetic realms. While in the second half we climb from darkness back to the surface and to life. Imagine the play of light through the bubbles just outside the porthole of your mind's submarine.

To me style is just the outside of content, and content the inside of style, like the outside and the inside of the human body—both go together, they can’t be separated.
