Title: Hutchinson, Hal : Wreckage Installations & Metalworks
Artist: Hutchinson, Hal
Label: Crucial Blast
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS
2014 release from the British noisemaker. Few contemporary Noise artists have explored the sonic qualities of scrap metal to the extent that Hal Hutchinson has with his Factory of Metal Sound aesthetic. The dense, brutally forceful metal-scapes Hutchinson crafts follow a tradition of Metal manipulation previously examined by Japanese Noisician K2 and Canadian artist Alan Bloor (a.k.a. Knurl), but Hutchinson employs a unique approach to assembling and layering his recordings of chains, pipes, sheet metal, metal barrels, and other metallic objects being smashed and dragged and beaten. A cacophony of skull-scraping clatter is transformed into something far more complex, as his Factory method blends these sounds together into a strangely structured colossus of entropic industrial pandemonium.
