Nordvargr & Surachai: Wilderness of Torrents

Wilderness of Torrents

A friend messaged me tonight saying while he was browsing his invite only torrent site, he came across my latest album with Nordvargr. You’ll see us at 6th place (click on the image for the larger version) with a torrent that is 28 files large. I was given the file and saw that the uploader purchased a box set, scanned the booklet and took shitty pictures of the CDs, patch and box.

You can download the album in two different higher quality formats with the properly digitized artwork HERE. If you want a CD, I have a few left, just e-mail if you’re interested.

Nordvargr & Surachai: A Wilderness of Cloades

Not sure when the release date was but I finally received a shipment of Nordvargr & Surachai: A Wilderness of Cloades CD’s and box sets. They are available at Old Europa Cafe or if you’re in the states, you can grab one from me for a better price. I don’t have many, so I’m sure they’ll be gone soon. There are two versions: A run of the mill CD and a limited edition box set that includes the CD, a patch, and a 3″ mini-CD with tracks not included on the standard CD.

If you’re interested, e-mail at

*Update – I’ve sold all the box sets and have requested more from the label. Thanks everyone!

*Update 2 – Digital Downloads are now available and can be found HERE

Selected Discography at FiXT

All of our releases are now available all at one place, FiXT, which is great because our catalog of releases on shade:red was scattered all over the internet.

Polyfuse – No One Will Come Save Us
Polyfuse’s ‘No One Will Come To Save Us’ was an experiment in analog electronic sound. All normal creative practices were thrown out in place of something more immediate. The whole collection was completed with the most minimum setup possible* and captured in such a way that it could not be altered after the original performance. Take it, turn it up, set it free.
*x0xb0x, TR-808, Moog Prodigy, Grundig G5 (A shortwave radio), Line6 DL-4 pedal, TubeWorks RT-901 overdrive pedal, Alesis Ineko and a TC Electronics M300 all plugged into a small 10 channel mixer.

Justin McGrath – The Night That Laid Still
The Night That Laid Still’ is the third and final solo release from Justin McGrath, who has now moved on to other projects such as Polyfuse. This EP of atmospheric ambient sound is reminiscent of NIN’s quieter moments, with acoustic elements created by piano and strings meandering throughout. Purchases of the full EP include an 8 track bonus EP of remixes, ‘Reconstructions’.

The Deep Element – Lapses
Surachai’s second release as IDM/Ambient/Post Rock project The Deep Element. Includes a cover of Clint Mansell’s “Stay With Me”.

The Deep Element – Currents
Before Surachai embarked on an exploration of brutal grindcore noise with his self titled project Surachai, the multi-talented musician experimented with glitchy, warm downtempo and IDM as The Deep Element. This debut album features covers of Karmakanik, jonbro, and Björk. Artwork by Sarah Lynn Wielusz.

Surachai – Decrepit
After two EPs of absolutely brutal analog noise-infused grindcore, Surachai’s fourth release returns to the purely experimental analog glitch soundscapes of his first album. Six tracks with corresponding artwork by Bridget Driessen follow the cycles and stages of a plagued memory.

Surachai – Designed Deficiency
Surachai’s third release continues to explore the grindcore-analog noise mix that appeared on the preceding EP, a genre the artist calls Plague Metal. Bridget Driessen also returns to contribute beautiful artwork once more.

Surachai – Programmed Cell Death
On his second release, Surachai takes the glitchy analog noise experimentation of his first album and wraps it around some truly traumatizing grindcore metal. Artwork by Bridget Driessen.

Surachai – Form
Surachai, who has previously created warm, downtempo IDM as The Deep Element and as one half of [Co]sen-tasi, throws listeners for a loop and runs in the opposite direction with his new self-titled solo project, Surachai. This first album contains fourteen tracks, each an experimental exploration into harsh, overdriven analog noise that altogether form a continuous 21-minute piece.

[co]sen_tasi – Cycled Seances
A followup EP to 2007’s Clarity in Japanese, Cycled Seances continues the IDM/downtempo/jazz fusion collaboration of analog noisemaker Surachai and jazz musician Jonathan Paul Robles.

[co]sen_tasi – Clarity in Japanese
Surachai, known for his downtempo/IDM project The Deep Element and his eponymous grindcore/analog noise counterpoint project, has also collaborated with jazz musician Jonathan Paul Robles to create [co]sen_tasi, a downtempo/IDM sound with elements of analog glitch and jazz fusion. This is their first album.

A Wilderness of Cloades

The fine folks at Old Europa Cafe are releasing A Wilderness of Cloades – A collaboration between Nordvargr and myself recorded this past winter. There will be a special limited numbered edition of 300 copies, the first 100 will come in an exclusive wooden box. There are two samples that can be found in the links below. Here is a glimpse of the artwork that Bridget Driessen, my favorite visual artist, composed for the release.

Phoenecia – Echelon Mall

We usually don’t promote our friend’s music on this site, especially not lately but hell this release is outstanding: Phoenecia – Echelon Mall on Alphabasic. I’ve been on a experimental, drone and soundtrack spree lately, so this fits right in there. As you may or may not know, Jeswa, who comprises half of Phoenecia was a featured artist in our Workspace and Environment series which can be found Here. The view that extends out of his studio windows are etched in my brain still to this day. I know that his modular system has since gotten out of control, spilling into monster cases and beyond.

[co]sen_tasi – Cycled Seances

[co]sen_tasi has been an ongoing collaborative effort between myself and JP Robles for the past few years. We tracked instruments and threw ideas around a few days in his old studio as far back as 2007 and have been sending each other stems back and forth over the years. We released our first EP, Clarity in Japanese, in 2007. Until we start caring about our music in that way, this release is free and hopefully you’ll find something to take away from it.

Surachai – Decrepit

Decrepit is the second addition that follows the soundscape release, Form. It follows the cycles and stages of a plagued memory – that’s all the information you get about Decrepit not because I’m arcane or elusive with information, rather I find it incredibly difficult to try to explain this, along any of my other, releases beyond a few words but if you have specific questions, drop me a line. Enjoy!
