Biography

Freeform improvisation served with occasional non-linear composition and recording methods. Emphasis on complicating matters of rhythm, melody and (dis)harmony, combining delirium with psychosis and spontaneity with higher-dimensional coherence.

Now sadly defunct, the once mighty duo PENTAGONIC explored the limits of their own minds and expertise to create noisy symphonic fugues existing entirely on their own terms. Chords materialise from the apparent maelstrom of dislocated sound, building into soundscapes of subtle melody which insidiously work their way inside your brains to create a pleasantly out-of-time, and sometimes disturbing aural experience.


MR BLACK
Guitar, Noise, FX master/ slave, non-rhythmic bassage, ashtray, wind-conductor on “Session”, general abstractions, pre-production.

MR RED
Bass, clean guitar (except on Art Gallery) and frettapping, Didgeridoo vocals, occasional keys.

Members past and future:

PENTAGONIC was formed in 2000 by Mr Black and Mr Red with help from numerous hand-picked shamanic aides, Seamus their white-haired guru, The Void, friends and other assorted friends.

The partnership dissolved in 2002; Mr Black taking his noise-pop sensibilities with him to never find later use, moving away from the haphazard heavy psych towards an expansive mathcore-esque style / gave up on music after realising neither he or anyone else could ever hope to surpass the magic that was PENTAGONIC / got a job and things, none of which really fit into the PENTAGONIC style. Mr Red learnt to play the bass properly too and also got a job but mostly found satisfaction playing the piano for his mum.

They briefly reformed in 2002 but this was sadly short-lived and produced only a few tracks of note because someone had misplaced “the vibe”, before splitting up for good in 2002 when they realised they’d influenced a whole new generation who had taken their sounds in new, scary directions.

Side-projects:

silver hammer was Mr Black’s outlet for his infrequent power metal urges and variations on the Top Gun theme. Sometime collaborators included greg.

Unknown and other projects that never really had names or at least none that can be recalled and only exist in highly rare one-pressing demo form.
