From Carbon Records site:
"here's an amazing drone guitar release from Ed Chang, the man behind
NYC-based Quodlibet label. member of Spin-17, and all around
free-improv, experimental, out-there musician. this showcases his
softer, more subtle drone-infestations/incantations. [packaged in heavy
vinyl sleeve with b&w photo by Ed on the front, and veluum back
cover. cds are spray painted] "
careful work exploring the possibilities of continuous electric guitar
drones developed over extended periods of time. Featuring smooth
transitions between the different sound masses, the static character is
the result of a careful mastery; the balance involved in handling
feedback being akin to that of high-tension wires. Quite subtle in its
approach, the materials are displayed with a certain Indian tanpura
quality in the slow unfolding of overtones. Other tracks present
harsher surfaces, with noise elements that emphasize rougher textures
and larger doses of processing.
compositions for young and fun people - appropriate for the beach,
cocktail parties, crime scenes, giant squid sightings and much
more. The 5-foot woman strikes again with her sidekick turntable

This is one of Han’s laptop experiments in chopping up and recombining
thrash/death metal samples into a superfast superchaotic
brain-melting stew. This uses uncleared, copyrighted samples (not
that you'd recognize them at this point) so you won’t be seeing this at
Tower Records anytime soon….This is only available as a freebie when
you order $15 worth of stuff from our website, so I don’t actually
“make money” from “stealing” other people’s “music”...“yo.”

CDR Series 2006
(New Full-length CD!)
debut of noise-jazz duo Agents At Midnight, and a real pro-pressed CD
in an edition of 500 copies, the first in 5 years! Meticulously
constructed from hours and hours of recording sessions, this album is a
distillation of all the many sounds and styles explored by this duo.
Rumbling bassy drones, unflinchingly ear-piercing examinations of
feedback tones, dizzyingly fast sample-based pieces, musique
concrete-inspired collage. And on all of it, sax and electronics flow
subtly into one another, bleeding over until the authorship of sounds
is often uncertain. Agents At Midnight inhabits a weird hybrid
territory somewhere between abstract modern improv, harsh noise, and
free jazz, sometimes blending these styles, sometimes veering between
