Product description

About the Author

GX Jupitter-Larsen has been involved in punk rock, mail art, cassette culture, the noise scene, and zine culture. During the 1990s he was the sound designer for the performances of Mark Pauline's Survival Research Laboratories. His best known work is as the founder of the noise act The Haters, who have performed all over the world, and appear on over 300 CD & record releases. Underlying all of GX's work is a mix of aesthetic and conceptual obsessions, particularly entropy and decay, and a self-created lexicon consisting mainly of personalized units of measurement such as the polywave, the totimorphous, and the xylowave. As a writer, GX wanted the same kind of aesthetic fanaticism in his text that the noise scene demands. He wanted to achieve, in language, the same harsh beauty that is rendered in sound by amplified erosion. He wanted a form of writing that had both the feel and sound of nothingness. Taking his cue from the noisy blank video static coming off an empty channel on a TV set, he represented vacuity in text as lines after lines of random letters; to be read one letter at a time.
