subduction is a collaboration between bios+a+ic and xaxis wye, originally released as a limited edition of 50 units with gold paper inserts which sold out. It was recorded at symbolic insight studios in Seattle, Washington in 2004 and produced by bios+a+ic. He also created sample glitch rhythms by looping cord buzzes and thick drones. xaxis wye improvised manipulated sounds from his personal collection of handmade module wave generators. The album’s sound is reminiscent of molten lava crackling through gaping holes in the Earth. The first four tracks are remixes by sound artists, Sleepy J, Noise Poet Nobody, bios+a+ic & xaxis wye created from the original source material. The second four tracks are a fusion of minimalistic dark drones, ambient hisses, and ethereal pops. http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/subduction/id514751866 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007PW03C6/ref=dm_sp_alb?ie=UTF8&qid=1334076641&sr=301-3
ABOUT blood_for_oil by sound artist, bios+a+ic, is an ambient-noise collage / sonic documentation which reflects upon the past and current turmoil in occupied Iraq.

It was originally released in the fall of 2005 as a limited edition of 100 units, packaged in camouflage paper, which is completely sold out.
Press Quotes "blood_for_oil" is an audio universe once could easily get lost in, adrift, a place that is dark but comforting and from which you'd never want to leave.” Fish Collective “This is excellent dark-ambient meditation on the ongoing struggle in Iraq, combining news samples, dark and noise-laden drones, tribal beats, chanting, and other layers of texture into a flowing series of brooding soundscapes. As for the quality and direction of the pieces, there are strong echoes of the work of Rapoon, Voice of Eye, Aube, and Scanner in particular. Highly recommended. ” Monotremata “Super deep dark drone, absolutely stunning, narcotic and hypnotic.” Your Imaginary Friend “Parallels can be drawn to such textural sound artists as MUSLIMGAUZE or O YUKI CONJUGATE, but bios+a+ic comes from an entirely different headspace. Political, yes, but 'Blood For Oil' also serves as an excellent (if unsettling) document of the whole debacle that is the war/occupation. Absolutely effective (especially the masterful 24-minute opening track) and a highly recommended release.” Godsend Recommended if you like, Muslimgauze, Main, Scanner, Shinjuku Theif, Tribes of Nuerot, Controlled Bleeding, Rapoon http://symbolicinsight.com/blood_for_oil Available at AMAZON, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0076V1YZQ/ref=dm_sp_alb?ie=UTF8&qid=1331169025&sr=301-4 and iTUNES, http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/blood-for-oil/id501127969 or your favorite digital music outlet today.
froZen by bios+a+ic and Tanker was originally release by symbolic insight on March 9, 2007 in conjunction with the Frozen Dead Guys Days Festival in Nederland, Colorado, as a limited edition of 100 units, which quickly sold out. This epic album sonically documents one of the coldest winters in decade and reflects upon the strage annual festival which exploits a frozen old man. The music is edgy ambient noise and drones combined with field recordings of the artists walking on the frozen river and reservoir. It features bios+a+ic's lush effects-laden trumpet, time stretched looping, and minimal sound textures. These elements are combined with Tanker's warping analog synthesizer, pulsing rhythms, and glitched blips. Vince Herman of legendary bluegrass band, Leftover Salmon, stated that it was the trippiest album he had ever heard. froZen is a powerful and unique musical statement which takes the listener to a strange and beautiful world which exists in either outer space or inner Earth. This release was the final recording made by mountain man and artist, Tanker, as he left the world the following summer. The album ends with his voice speaking over his synth. May he rest in peace.

"While living in Seattle, I collaborated musically with numerous amazing players. This CD is a showcase of textures featuring some of the best recorded moments captured live at Symbolic Insight Studios (Intonarumori, Vance Galloway, Xaxis Wye, Jim Deal)." - bios+a+ic Review from The Stranger, Vol 13 No 26: Subliminal lowercase drones and ominous pulses emit from the cryptic catacombs of sound sorcerer Wesley Davis and fellow aural alchemists Intonarumori, Xaxis Wye, Jim Deal, and Vance Galloway. Their Texture Blue CD tunnels through inner space with a microcosmic, mystical richness. This is music for new, alien rituals or soundtracks for 22nd-century science-fiction films. It's at once amorphously disturbing and chillingly tranquil. I don't want to know how bios+a+ic work this dark magic. ~ DAVE SEGAL, The Stranger, Seattle, Washington

bios+a+ic vs. biaxial creep cd drops world wide JULY 12, 2011 at all major digital distribution outlets including iTunes and Amazon.com.
bios+a+ic vs. biaxial creep (symbolic insight) features bios+a+ic's lush processed trumpet & lead vocals combined with biaxial creep's amazing beat & synthesizer palettes. The album combines classic electronic influences such as Depeche Mode, Skinny Puppy, and New Order with more current influences such as Autechre, Gridlock, and Nine Inch Nails to create a groundwork for something modern and completely original. The production team of Wesley Davis and Swante Jauch has assembled a diverse, cohesive, and unique sonic release, which is an evolution of industrial, IDM, glitch, synth-pop, gothic, and ambient styles. From his studio based in Nederland, Colorado, Davis is responsible for the final polished sound of the album by reworking the original raw beat programming, synthesizer lines, and various samples and then adding his own unique flavors. Jauch created the original arrangements and sonic structuring, along with melodic cores and the majority of the rhythm programming at his Mothlight studios in Seattle, Washington. The last three tracks on the release were recorded and produced in Seattle before Davis relocated to Colorado and originally used as the duo's demo cd.
