NAU-ZEE-AUN plays the Carnival Ad Nauseum in San Francisco with FILTHMILK (see also http://www.audiosurge.com
/bands/pages/fitlhmilk/), IMPERIAL FLORAL ASSUALT UNIT, and THE SOAPBOX. The night started out with an open mic of Catastrophe Orchestra style noise as a drummer, guitarists, players of various devices gave a wall of cacouphany for possibly an hour. Then The Soapbox started up with some nice idm'ish ambiant improv. Filthmilk was next in a set similar to past Zero Times Infinity shows using a heavily amplified shopping cart full of springs and pickups and several guys on electronics the frontman banged out a simple beat through most of the show wearing a smiling pig mask. For a moment the show was joined by the energetic screams of a The Chupacabra who I later found out was a former member of Another Dead Sharron (see Greg Greg, Lost Earth Lock, and Negative Time for related projects). Nau-Zee-auN took the stage next in the only solo performance of the night giving a wall of oscilating feedback and piercing noise. Crowd realction was very possitive. Imperial Floral Assualt Unit closed out the night with a set worthy of DVOA or the Pink Dots. A great line up all around. The Voidstar must return to the west. Active participant Deftly-D.

Tau Neutrino Tour 2000

Sun Aug 27th 2000:

PE#47 (the final leg of the Tau Neutrino Tour 2000) @ 90.3 FM WZBC Newton MA's Industrial Factory. Portland OR's State Vector Collapse once again started off the live broadcast with the best and last audio assault of the tour followed by a full on collaborative performance between Zero Times Infinity and S.V.C. with guest percusion by host Brian Lumaig. In the aftermath of the tour one thing is clear - this is the beginning of a new chapter for Zero Times Infinity and Voidstar Productions. Active participants Deftly-D, and Hex with guest appearance by Leif 'gliTch' Hunneman (a.k.a. State Vector Collapse) and DJ Brian Lumaig.

Sat Aug 26th 2000:

PE#46 (leg 4 of the Tau Neutrino Tour 2000) @ The Zeitgeist Gallery in Cambridge MA. The small room seemed like the seams were spliting to try to handle the activity within. PNUMATIC DETTACH astounded everyone with his debut performance. Schrouded with smoke and strobe lights Justin and Stacia's power noise set amazed all who made the opening of the night making TERRETRON's life difficult. TERRETRON blew through another pounding set with some minor technical difficulties. Then it was time for SMP to assault claustrophobic nightmare of an audience. SMP's set was closed out by the collaborative set of State Vector Collapse, Zero Times Infinity and GRENADIER with guest percusion by TerrEtroN and the audience. The beat driven set was fueled by furious beats from Grenadier, distorted breaks and noise from Leif Hunneman and a wall of delays and steel from Zero times Infinity. Too be continued. Outdoors the movie Metropolis was screened with more live music scoring the classic film. Active participants Ennui, Deftly-D, and Hex with guest appearance by Leif 'gliTch' Hunneman (a.k.a. State Vector Collapse) and GRENADIER.

Fri Aug 25th 2000 (Night):

(leg 3 of the Tau Neutrino Tour 2000) @ 91.5 FM WJUL Lowell MA's High Voltage Circumcision Show. 2000 Ants, the collaboration of 2000 Joe Browns (Plastic Razor Protector), Dei Christ (The Bop Ants) and Marc Bison (The Bop Ants) started off the live night with guitars that slowly warped into electronic noises. Dei's bassy playing of the stringed electric marlin (yes, a big swordfish with strings and leopard spots), Joe's electric slinky, and Marc's prepared guitar made for great in studio visuals as well as fine soundscapes. Ukuphambana took over with his brand of bleepy idm noise wierdness including a live sampling from his newly released cd, Gritware Composite. State Vector Collapse pierced eardrums with his abrasive breakbeats and wall of noise. Iso_Staticon, gave an impressive debut performance of dark ambiance and noisescapes. TerrEtroN blew away his previous night's performance with an emotionally charged set. Infrastructure closed the night with probably her best sounding performance to date.

Fri Aug 25th 2000 (Noon):

PE#45 (leg 2 of the Tau Neutrino Tour 2000) @ 91.5 FM WMFO Medford MA's Vakantie Den E Terra Di E Cachonan Geverf Show. Portland OR's State Vector Collapse started off the live broadcast with his blend of noise and breakbeats from followed by Zero Times Infinity constructing slower delay based rhythms. Finally in the end a collaborative performance ensued between Zero Times Infinity, State Vector Collapse, and noise artist Guava Cheese. Another tight set drastically different from the previous nights show. Active participants Deftly-D, and Hex with guest appearance by Leif 'gliTch' Hunneman (a.k.a. State Vector Collapse) and Ed Brandon (a.k.a. Guava Cheese).

Thr Aug 24th 2000:

PE#44 (leg 1 of the Tau Neutrino Tour 2000) @ 242MAIN in Burlington VT. What can I say the first show was great from beginning to end and signalled how the rest of this little cluster of shows was going to go. The night started off the bat with a pounding set from TERRETRON to a crowd that seemed to pack the club out of nowhere withing 15 seconds of his taking the stage. Portland OR based drill and noise artist State Vector Collapse assaulted audiences with piercing noises and breakbeats from hell while hiding behind a mask of thick smoke and a blinding strobe light. Zero Times Infinity then took the stage in collaboration with State Vector Collapse throwing the scrap pile to the audience while Hex smashed floor tiles and plates into the crowd. Then Seattles hardest working industrial hip hop outfit SMP continued to blow away the energized packed audience (if you've never seen SMP you're missing out tremendously), CHAINSAWS AND CHILDREN closed out the night in top form including a tounge in cheek industrial metal cover of Def Leppard's Pour Some Sugar On Me. All around a tight packed industrial show from beginning to end. Active participants Deftly-D, and Hex with guest appearance by Leif 'gliTch' Hunneman (a.k.a. State Vector Collapse)..

Sat Jun 3rd 2000:

PE#43 @ The Voix in Lowell MA, Voidstar Productions presents CYBER-RAMMA III featuring performances by ANDROID LUST, I PARASITE, INFRASTRUCTURE, TERRETRON, TURPENTINE CONSUMPTION, and ZERO TIMES INFINITY vs. ACID REFLEX. Pretty Color projections by SERATONIN. Turpentine Consumption started off the night with an earbleed set including collaborations with Possitively Revolting. The ZTI AR collaboration was one of the best ZTI performances to date. Highly dancable but with too many people on the floor to dance. TerrEtroN, Infrastructure, I Parasite and Android Lust all continued elevating the night of live industrial music. Active participants Ennui, Tyler Newman, Deftly-D, Wicked, and Hex..

Sat May 20th 2000:

Wed May 17th 2000:

PE#42 at AS220's AM*BE*THANG in Providence RI. ZERO TIMES INFINITY vs. RESONATOR (German). First RI appearance. A great 1 hour collaboration with good reactions from the audience and management.

Active participants Canine, Deftly-D and Hex.

Wed May 10th 2000:

PE#41 at THE PYRAMID in NYC. This was Zero Times Infinity's first NYC appearance. Excellent reactions from the audience and management. ZIPPERSPY also did one of her best sets to date featuring an odd rapper who seemed to be struggling to follow the Icky Beats. PATIENT 7734 (a.k.a. Darryl Hell) blew everyone away at the end of the night performing pieces from both Operation:Mindwipe and Abstinence along with a new piece using a long video sample of Ed from Positively Revolting and Guava Cheese. Active participants Deftly-D and Hex.

Sun May 7th 2000:

PE#40 at Jacques Cabaret in Boston. NOISE IN DRAG SHOW with Zero Times Infinity showing first hand that style is irrelevant, and glam and dada mix like sausage and ashtray grit. A tight performance for ZTI. Great spinning by DJ Pantshead. Fantastic low tech high energy set from Can't. Improv set by Darryl Hell including walls of noise and stereo destruction. Panicksville and Zipperspy unfortunately where not able to play due to technical difficulties. Active participants Deftly-D and Hex.

Sat May 6th 2000:

Hawaiian Shirt Mafia - Deftly-D vs. Tyler Newman in a face to face grinder war

SEISE DE MayO at the VOIX. Day two included highlights where:

  • an outdoor assault by the HAWAIIAN SHIRT MAFIA featuring roasting pig and goats heads, flaming drums, flaming drummers, meat coated strip teases, face to face grinder wars, steel, meat, fire, and electricity infused in a covert terrorist action hidden in a back alley.
  • an afternoon out door performance by Pine Tree State Mind Control using noise and subliminal messages. Performance ended prematurely for his finally by 30 seconds when he finally vomited red cool aid stating the words "I guess timing is ..hurphhhhh sploooshshshsh."
  • ROCKET SOCIETY vs. OPERATION:MINDWIPE doing an incredible set featuring EBN style cut ups over harsh industrial beats and noise with strong sociopolitical content and shock tactics.
  • 2000 Ants (unfortunately I did not see the performance due to performing in HSM at the same time but it looked tremendous from what little I got to see - especially DIE CHRIST playing the swordfish).
  • Infrastructure collaborating with DJ's, rappers, beatboxers, and extra electronic artists.
  • DJ HELL showing New England what a REAL DJ is about. Incredible performance using turntables doing tricks that made everyone who was sick of DJ's AND everyone who was a DJ stair with their mouth open and dance their asses off trying to follow his skills. There isn't a DJ in all of New England to compare that I've seen (other than seeing DJ Zero, Jazzy Jeff, and Spooky when they've come through town - all of whom still might be able to learn from Mr. Hell).
  • DJ Pantshead doing his thing. Hard to believe it's the same guy behind the ECC.
  • Seratonin (Pretty Colors), Dr T, W2, and many other live video artists.
  • other DJ's.

Fri May 5th 2000:

PE#39 - CINCO DE MayO at the VOIX. Day one included Zero Times Infinity constructing an installation and performing within a smoke and spark tent. Other highlights where:

  • The Evolution Control Committee (also spinning as DJ Pants Head) doing puppet shows, singing about food and generally doing a great and hilarious performance.
  • TerrEtroN, doing his return to New England aggressive performance. The crowd couldn't get enough of his show.
  • Crank Sturgeon with Gaylord Scisorhand, brilliant and hilarious as always. Exploding records being played on a power tool.
  • Karl Heinz, obliterated his equipment again in an outstanding noise performance.
  • The Mad Switch and Eat My All, riding the edge of harsh danceable sound. Keep an eye out for these guys.
  • Control Voltage, improvisational techno deserving a dark room with lights in motion. Someone get this guy booked in a danceable setting.
  • Panicksville, great beats
  • Jopa,
  • Emil Beaulieau, doing 30 second sets for every new face he saw.
  • Seratonin (Pretty Colors), Dr T, W2, and many other live video artists.
  • and lots of DJ's.
Active participants Hex and Deftly-D.
