Voidstar Productions in association with
HellLab is a performance laboratory, which provides a venue where mixed-media artists perform in a theatrical setting amongst likeminded artists and are encouraged to develop concepts / ideas freely without the constraints of market driven forces.
From 1994 to 1997, Darryl Hell produced a series of events as promotions director for the legendary Silent Records, San Francisco called FurnaceLab. These events were an outgrowth of his revulsion for overpriced club / venue rentals and an ever-imposing concern for increasing bar tabs instead of presenting quality adventurous art. FurnaceLab, which was modeled after mid 1960's San Francisco loft parties / events, presented nationally and internationally recognized / respected artists from the experimental community in a completely alternative environment. Home cooked food, relaxed performance scheduling, providing artists with an escape from urban life and absolutely no concern about the "filler" crowd were the keys that made the series unique.
HellLab is the rebirth of the movement to support expansive mixed-media artistic creation. Originally held at 111 Atlantic Ave. Long Branch, NJ (3 blocks from the Atlantic Ocean), we have now brought our movement to 111 W42nd Street in the heart of Times Square, NYC. (2 blocks from the heart of Metro-Disney)
Now in 2002, it's more important than ever to have a place where mixed-media artists can perform and experiment without being unwilling representatives for the alcohol industry or "subpop" culture trends.

"Hmmmm, how to decribe HELLLAB. Hmmmmmm. I could take the lazy way
Darryl, as usual, completely and unequivicably rocked the muthafuckin
house. During the second half, he invited me on stage and handed me a
mike. I've never beatboxed using such a loud, bassy sound system before.
I was satisfied by my performance, and the juxstaposition of my beats
& Darryl's electric drums was booty shakin good. Terrofakt, DJ HellRaver's
project, was very good, aggresive, straghtforward power noiz. Props to
him for the way he mixed in the Hooker from Full Metal Jacket, sped

I'll tell you, but first, let me catch my breath- my shoes still smell
like squid and lamb tongues. Okay, here's a rapup.

Thr Apr 18st 2002: BANNED!!! @ The Upstairs Lounge (above the Penalty Box at North Station)
[Boston, MA] - Zero Times Infinity, Chainsaws and Children and DJ Darcy. The destruction hit an all time high for Zero Times Infinity with new members debuting in a competition for mayhem. Chainsaws and Children started the night with a great set featuring their newest member Josh from TerrEtroN and saying farewell to veteran chainsaw Devough. Flame throwers, chainsaws and tight metal based industrial music. Then ZTI took the stage and the destruction began. Packed audience, Roland's drumming was tight, Chris the Hex' was dead on and Chris the Machinery God put in everything he could.
"Well, well, well. If there's one thing that hard-core industrial fans want, it's fire, fumes, and freon. And the show at the Upstairs lounge supplied all three f'ing things all at f'ing once.
"Opening was Chainsaws and children, the industrial shock-rock quintet
who are so big in Vermont they have a day named after them. Livening up
their set with crotch-oriented blasts from personal flamethrowers (YEEHAW!)
and chopping up baby doll heads with chainsaws (YEEHEEHAW!), I couldn't
look away. It was so stupid, the entire set was full of so many bad ideas,
and it was fascinating. It was all of my real TV visions come (almost).
"Then, on came Zero Times Infinity, with live drums and an extra guy whose sole function it seemed was to be as destructive as possible. He pick-axed refrigerators, lit said fridges on fire, and eventually, with possibly toxic fumes pouring from that gosh darn fridge, batted Vaseline coated Ping-Pong balls at us with a tennis racket. If even one got into my drink, there would have been a brawl, I swear. As it was, it added to the camaraderie of the attendees, who ganged up on that poor sap that got duct taped to the recently extinguished fridge and pelted him with all the balls we could find. BALLS I say. ZTI sounded good, I liked the live drums and the addition of crazy-running-around-destroying-things guy. But let me tell you something, Mr. Dodson. If you're going to call yourself real industrial, toughen up your image a bit and add some distortion to your reverb, ok? 'Real' industrial was for aggro-bastards, by aggro-bastards. Intelligent dance music is around for the benefit of geeks. Now let's go set some things on fire."

Perhaps Machinery God's note summs it up best:
"400 ping pong balls: $40.00
I honestly believe we where on for more than 15 minutes but then time perception is always warped during performances and what ever amount of time this show went for was the right amount of time. The pick ax unfortunately didn't survive it's first show but the slime from the ping pong balls lubricated the floor around the metal very effectively. Although it appears that we are banned from the Upstairs Lounge, Big Daddy was very cool in handling everything that ensued and despite the mayhem the Upstairs Lounge is not scarred or significantly damaged and all involved continue to have the same number of fingers and limbs they had before the performance. Thanks to everyone involved and all who attended for making this show a success in every possible way.
Active participants - Machinery God (general mayhem, refrigerator, machines,
slimy ping pong balls), Roland Adams (polyrhythmic drums), Hex (electronics
and percussion), Deftly-D (feedback, metal, powertools, pick ax, walkie
talkies), Chainsaws and Children (chainsaw, flame throwers, etc.), the
hard-core people in the audience (mayhem).
Sat Mar 9th 2002: on 91.5FM WJUL's Players Prepare Your Pianos
[Lowell, MA] - Celebrating Marc Bisson's birthday with teh absence of Marc a Catastrophe Orchestra like collaboration between ZTI, 2000 Joe Browns, Mike Fun (of Hypocycloid), and Jekyll Island did a private improv jam session on the airwaves of WJUL following earlier experiments that day at the 911 Gallery.
Thr Mar 7th 2002 8:30 PM sharp: noise @ The Sugar Shack
[Lowell, MA] - (100 University Ave. Lowell MA) with Flatline Construct, Zero Times Infinity, Pine Tree State Mind Control, Immaculate:Grotesque, DJ Peter Lee and Prurient. An all around amazing night of noise. The ZTI set almost got cut short due to running out of microphones but the audience had no trouble getting involved. The show climaxed when Deftly-D pulled out a hidden sledge hammer among the audience participants and demolished the remaining metal. Everyone's sets where dead on. Prurient in particular gave a brilliant performance with minimal unsettling buzzing drone followed by a 2 second explosion of fercity rarely seen in live shows.
Sat Mar 2nd 2002: 91.5 FM WMFO's Vakantie Den E Terra Di E Cachonan Geverf Show
[Medford, MA] - Ukuphambana, Snackmaster (MSF) and Sophmore.
