Biography

Wax Audio, an audio producer and mashup artist from Australia, has released three politically themed cut & paste EP’s known collectively as “The Mashed Media Trilogy”. In 2007 he released Mashopols, a 10 track mashup / bootleg / bastard-pop / remix album. Since the beginning of 2008 Wax Audio has been working on a new mashup / sound-collage / ambient / documentary album using nothing but his personal archive of field recordings made throughout 2005/06 whilst travelling the world.

The individual releases of The Mashed Media Trilogy are WMD …And Other Distractions (2004), Mediacracy (2005) and Cut, Paste and Run (2007). These works were created using heavily edited soundbytes of media coverage relating to the war in Iraq (and elsewhere), re-contextualised dialogue from Australian, British and American politicians as well as countless other sources, all set to various musical styles. The trilogy is a humorous though often disturbing soundscape of our times, as represented by western worlds leaders and the news media.

Mashopolos (2007) features the music of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Ray Parker Junior, The Bee Gees, Pink Floyd, Public Enemy, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Kate Bush, Prince, Panjabi MC, Tori Amos, PJ Harvey, Bjork and Massive Attack. Since the beginning of 2008 Wax Audio has been working on a follow-up to Mashopolos (called Mashopolos II - The Mashening).
