ELEVENELEVEN :: 34 SECRET KILLER OF NAMES

Secret Killer of NamesSince the age of 12 i’ve been fascinated by Horror films though it was not until I started making music/sound art that I realised why.

I am not overly impressed by the gore and misogyny/misanthropy so much as I am drawn to the soundtracks of horror and terror, which inspire an almost metaphysical reverie.

Secret Killer of Names is the nom de plume of media artist and researcher, Lloyd Barret.

“To let understanding stop at what cannot be understood is a high attainment. Those who cannot do it will be destroyed on the lathe of heaven.” (Ursula K. Le Guin)

A prescription for the enhancement of oneirological pursuits, be it art, reading, sleep, or a free three-quarter hour meditation in an unlit space. It evolves and so will you.

The pieces on this album were created using a specially designed system code-named “Habitat”. Autonomous artificial agents feed on live and prepared sound and vision, excreting their own mutated variations which are then collected and presented for listener edification. The process is the culmination of combined research by Paul and Lloyd in the construction of a live electro-acoustic audiovisual engine that draws from both academic and underground practices. All material presented was originally generated live and has been edited only to remove fatty excesses.

Lloyd Barrett has spent the last 5 years working on a suitable sound for this project – with the only official release being a “cover” of the Coil track “Spastiche” on the Balance tribute album “the loneliest link in a very strange chain”. While retaining the sidereal nature of Coil, SKON has become inextricably linked to guitar worship. Channelling nocturnal emissions from spirit landscapes both internal and extraterrestrial this however is no G3 style tech hysteria. Lloyd’s guitar “gods” include Justin Broadrick, Snakefinger, Sunn O))), James Plotkin and Birchville Cat Motel.
