Sonic 666 MP3s

It’s the day that the dark-clad and gloom-oriented have long been awaiting: June 6, 2006, or 6/6/06, the most Satanic day of our century, at least until 2066. In its honor, here are two expanses of dark ambience, courtesy of the aptly named Noisejihad Live netlabel, housed at noisejihad.dk/netlabel. The label traffics, as its name suggests, in violent sounds performed live. Two sets comprise a “release” (Noisejihad’s most recent) dated April 13 of this year: one from American microsound figure Kim Cascone (MP3), who disovers rich sound sources in small crevices, and one from the Danish act Rumforskning (MP3), whose work sounds like the mental turmoil of some suddenly sentient machine.
