"NOON has existed in various forms since 2008. A combination of weighty drone and spastic noise produced by an array of analog and digital inputs, the sound emanating from this mutant beast traverses both aural and tactile registers - the body being its terrain of choice.
Drawing unholy energy from the likes of Throbbing Gristle and DNA, NOON was formed by Erik in collaboration with Kray Korvela as a somewhat more structured extension of previous improvisational work by the two. This duo has collaborated to varying extents with Matt Shuff (DBH), Clarke Joyner (Kama Kama), Michael Anderson (Drekka), Chris Barth (Impossible Shapes, Normanoak, & Glitter Brains), and various members of Bloomington's Improvised Music Project (IMP).
Temporarily transplanted from Bloomington, IN to Atlanta, NOON is currently a solo project involving discordant jungle beats, ham-fisted guitar, industrial samples, tape adapter manipulation, a soft-bundled contact mic, scattered cymbals, and buried vocals."
