Nine Circles is currently streaming Potential vs Eventual, the latest EP from experimental noise architect NOISEPOETNOBODY. The premiere comes in advance of the EP’s official release Friday April 15th via Scry Recordings.
For two decades, Casey Chittenden Jones has been soundtracking the collapse of civilization under the moniker NOISEPOETNOBODY, utilizing homemade instruments, synthesizers, field recordings, tape manipulation and modular equipment to create haunting, discordant, and broken sounds to express the need for creativity in a dying ecosystem.
Writes Nine Circles in part, “On the surface, the stark, droning minimalism of the NOISEPOETNOBODY project finds a curious balance between ethereal and urban industrial. The manipulation of all these very distinct sources of sound leads to an overall environment of discordance, and pessimism. A somber realization of the future that lies ahead. Yet at the same time, it makes sense. Three tracks covering half an hour, with the complex passages swerving from one to another effortlessly, ultimately make this a piece best absorbed as one continuous listen. This, without question, is the most effective way to align oneself with the perspectives presented on Potential vs Eventual, allowing the full impact to take hold. It’s an impressive display of industrial noise that leaves its mark quickly and efficiently…”

NOISEPOETNOBODY has spent much time performing in underground venues, bars, art galleries, abandoned buildings, and illegal DIY spaces forever seeking to promote mental deprogramming through anti-commercial sonic immersion. Each NOISEPOETNOBODY set is a one-of-a-kind exchange of energy employing analog electronics and improvised inspirations via speaker cones. Jones has collaborated frequently with Butoh dancers and released The River 12” with choreography instructions composed by Scry Recordings labelmate, Vanessa Skantze. He participated in and mastered Skantze’s Writhing Treasure Feast double album and ninety-minute Butoh piece. He’s created music for Briana Jones’ dance video series as well. During the pandemic years, he spent much time creating new work and expanding his techniques for production.
Most commonly associated with the genres experimental, minimalism, noise, industrial, drone, his solo works and collaborations have been released by Scry Recordings, Lens Records, and Public Eyesore, among others. NOISEPOETNOBODY has participated in numerous festivals and series including NorCal Noise Fest, Eugene Noise Fest, Olympia Experimental Music Festival, and Modular On The Spot. Jones also originated the Driftwood Orchestra, Seattle Dismal Fest, Pillow Full Of Drone, and currently joins Peter Keller in the duo Dosenöffner.
