Influenced by Merzbow, the Haters and other denizens of noise-art culture, absolute value of noise takes sound to the extreme. Originating as a radio-art program on CiTR FM, Vancouver (from 1988 to 1992), productions include radio-art, performance, installation, net-art and a variety of collaborative projects. The artist works with feedback, distortion, mechanical devices and hand-built instruments to create both intense collages and minimal sonic threads.
