Glands of External Secretion ( is a project out of SF by Seymour Glass of Banafish Magazine and Barbara Manning.

Their most recent release, Meat Receiving, is a perambulation through distorted organic pong, space bound petri dishes overflowing with hordes of tiny creatures whispering/bellowing on tiny cb radios. A crystaline intestine, a cubic colonic.

Blake Edwards has been exploring sound under the name Vertonen for just over 20 years. His most recent work has focused on repurposing “dated” technology (multi-variable speed turntables, cassette players) and damaged media (customized records, tape machine malfunctions, corroded audio tape).

Panicsville ( is a Chicago noise music group founded in 1992 by Andy Ortmann (founder of Nihilist Records) with David Forquer and Ryan Kohler. It has become an ongoing project for Ortmann to work with other musicians. Early shows consisted of pelting the audience with items like dry ice, meat, blood and insects. The group currently execute experiments of subliminal mind-control via “entertainment”.

Hali Palombo works with shortwave radio field recordings and voice. Colorful collages between secret drone spywork and carnegie hall, wild fields and a gridded architect’s drafting board.
