Pulse Emitter posted this link here somewhere:

http://www.myspace.com/pdxnoise (Portland OR noise etc. calendar of events)

It would be great if we had more of these posted here for other places. San Francisco, Seattle, LA, for example.

you need links for whitehouse and nurse with wound!

(and coil? "constant shallowness leads to evil" is definitely noise).

what about melt banana?

merzbow?

throbbing gristle?

what qualifies as noise?

Well... I was talking more exclusively as noise artists who use synths. Merzbow used to use a Synthi but now is almost exclusively Max MSP, TG are industrial and are one of my favorite bands - but not synth noise.

Whitehouse - to be honest, I hate them - well Philip. Nurse with Wound is great too, but more cut-up/concrete.
parasitk
The latter half of Constant Shallowness... is absolutely synth based noise/drone (wave folders FTW!). But Coil is not a full out noise project, of course. Same goes for a lot of early industrial bands.

I think you should definitely count early Merzbow, even though he changed!.

Alex, one curious thing is that you refer to synth based noise, but also mentioned doom in the original post? If you're talking Sunn o))) type drone-doom, while synths are often used, it's definitely not synth noise! So maybe you have other bands in mind? Spill it! I wanna hear some synth doom! SlayerBadger!

Ok, ok... I give... Synth doom list coming.

And yes, Coil, Merzbow and TG are all awesome and gravy. The list above was mostly recent "noise" artists who are all killing the synth tunes with maximum prejudice. hyper

Gotcha - and that's awesome, thanks!

Hit me with that sweet synth doom! Rawk!

I am working with a guy on a doomed out black metal project that is yet to be named as well, Berzum style riffing with D/A A/D style synth doom.

Cool, that's good... I know he bought your old one - didn't he??? For a while there he was 100% max, then he was using this crazy noise stick and max.

he ended up with my VCS3 in 1994....he then went computer in early late 90/s early 2000 and now is back using both and why not I say:-)
He is also playing drums too lately :-)

Yeah man, neither of us have ever heard ANYTHING like this before. It escapes all the cliche ambient black metal crap. I am rocking my AX80 on these tracks, so I can chord and play "actual" notes. I am using my modular for drones and processing however.

I don't want to sound cocky, but this shit is going to blow peoples heads wide open! If you like BM guys you should check out Frank's band Pagan Hellfire:

man, no mention yet of Bastard Noise??
dudes have bigger and badder home made tube synths than anyone I know
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2302/2507419783_ed024a9ff8_o.jpg
http://www.trogotronic.com/

and according to Mike from F/I/T/H, yes they have lugged around the Flying Fish in a padded crate while in Japan. can you imagine getting that thing on a train there??

theres also Unicorn, Geronimo (could that be considered synth doom?). Torso is a dude who I haven't heard much from but what I have is very much in the style of BN with a doomier vibe. he also has a sludge band called Ventt. 2673 is also a good one to check out for people into that style. did a tour with him last year- absolutely ear piercing. he blew a PA the second night of our tour with his Trogotonic gear.

BN and Unicorn use mostly function and audio generators, not synths. Same goes for Torso - Sandy and I are friends, he lives here in Halifax. He and I played with BN and Unicorn 2 years back, it was fucking intense. Torso has a colab with BN coming up at some point.

Fire In The Head, Control, Morbund, Bloody Minded, Grey Wolves, Prurient are some other great power electronics acts that use mostly synth.

Mike from F/I/T/H is one of my favorite people in the whole world.

I am going to have to update that fucking list I guess.

Just saw Timeghost @ The Red Light District in Far Rockaway last week. Great dude, awesome set. I love those dudes over there. Always a good time.

Any noise wigglers going to Merzbow in Brooklyn next week? We should say hello to each other

Yeah, long story on that demise. Some of the more constructive elements have had a go at fanning the embers in hope of summoning a phoenix. Pretty slow as yet..

About five years since this thread was started....Doom and synth...
I wonder how this "genre"
has fared- since then... if it's ever
gotten legs? I can only think of a handful
of bands, if that. I must be missing a few.

DA/AD-
Sorry I forgot about thread...feel free to add... Any/everyone else too, ftm.
I'd say Ufomammut first. By far the band having the most music out with both elements - consistently. After that the synth parts get less. Synth with some guitar, or guitar with synth on some songs.

Static White Demon has elements. OM. Sun O))) collabs. (depending on the project) A couple of James Plotkin projects I can't recall atm?
I'll ad to my list with a "currently active" pre-req - as much as possible.

I know this is an old thread, and not sure how protocol works on kicking around old postings, but I have to say that D/A A/D has the identical musical leanings as I do. Just wanted to throw it out there that for around 8 years I've been trying to nail down a recorded sound I'm happy with in the doomish meets TG meets noise/experiment thing. I've had some personal success with it, but have had to work pretty much solo, as my buddy that has the same taste (ha, or lack thereof) is in another state and has little time to work on it.

I'd be interested in joining or working with other musicians by distance in this arena..I have no interest in live work, and dedicate it to recordings anyhow.

Anyhow, great old post. Wish there was more out there of it. I'm busy looking into all those bands you mentioned in the posts...I'm from the older punk era, and not familiar with some of these groups. Thanks!
RSL
Man..."Frequency Kill" is awesome (first one I've clicked on). I'm gonna pick up some of these recordings...great work!

Pandora jewelry has become nearly synonymous with the brand's signature customized charm bracelets, and that's no wonder, since those pieces make up the bulk pandora charms uk the Danish company's sales. But a branding campaign launched this month by the Baltimore-based U. S. division tells shoppers they can just as easily create customized looks with rings, necklaces and earrings.

"Jewelry for pandora charms outlet women has really evolved over the last several years, " said Scott Burger, president of Pandora Americas. "It's not so much about adorning women as it is an opportunity for women to express their individuality. "That trend, Burger believes, closely aligns with the Pandora brand. "The Art of You" campaign, launched in the U. S. and Canada on April 13, asks women "Who will you create today? " in an effort to not only "inspire women to embrace the self-creator within, " the company said, but to drive traffic to stores and websites more frequently than on holidays and special occasions. The campaign, planned for TV, print, digital and social media channels through at least the end of the year, will highlight all categories — rings, earrings, necklaces, pendants, charms and bracelets, in gold, silver, gemstones, cultured pearls and other materials. Stores will reinforce the self-creator notion and "encourage consumers to come into the stores more often, " Burger said. In another shift, the company also is expanding its online presence. pandora bracelet sale Tuesday, Pandora will unveil a branded online channel in the U. S.,part of a strategy to increase online sales globally. It will offer another option to consumers who now can order Pandora jewelry online through 39 authorized retail partners such as Nordstrom, Jared and Bloomingdale's.

The U. S. site will be the latest addition to online store sites in seven European countries. Pandora, which markets itself as high-quality jewelry at affordable prices, offers pieces that range in price from $30 for a sterling ring or individual charm to hundreds of dollars for a gold charm. And the new marketing campaign aims to "make sure that consumers are aware that the Pandora brand is about more than charms and bracelets, " Burger said. "It builds off the success that we've had, encouraging people to celebrate unforgettable moments. … It's a new way to really encourage someone to ask themselves who they're going to create today, and think how Pandora jewelry can partner with them in answering that question. "The company held off selling products through its own online sales channel in the U. S. until it could better gauge the potential impact on pandora silver charms its store business.
