Biography

Kryptogen Rundfunk is a project from Russia (see http://kr.radionoise.ru/), based in St. Petersburg and founded by M.M. who specializes in music built mainly from radionoise manipulations. Pulsating rhythms, melodic elements, samples and dense noise attacks lie on a substrate of plangent drone layers extracted from electrified depths of radio receivers.

This project evokes both the uncanny aspects of industry and the trauma of its operation in an increasingly dysfunctional context. It is sometimes almost overloaded by ghostly radio frequencies that seem to haunt themselves and by grinding oppressive processes. What these might be we can only guess, but it hovers in the imagination somewhere between a grimy noisy nightshift in a provincial factory and some dangerous Tesla style techno-occultist experiment. The heavy bass pulsing of a chronically unstable power supply gives the work of the project its momentum.
