Dog As Master

Alias:
Gender: Male
Country: United States
Description: The main project of Hal McGEE (b. 1958), a prolific composer, label owner and a man behind many initiatives propagating art concepts of INDUSTRIAL CULTURE, also appearing as JOLIFANTO KARAWANE and OCCUPANT. He started out in 1981 with Debbie JAFFE (later known as MASTER/SLAVE RELATIONSHIP) in a duo bearing a number of names: VISCERA, ARMY BRATS, BURNT CIRCUITS, The CONCRETE ETENDUE and SWAMP PATROL, offering a fusion of the industrial avant-garde of rock music with pop and new wave. Since 1984, with a hiatus from 1992 to 1995, he has worked solo, producing a body of compositions involving diverse varieties of industrial music, mainly experimental post-industrial, power electronics and art noise. He uses simple synthesizers, a drum machine, numerous sound processors, as well as the distorted sounds of acoustic instruments or everyday objects. His methods of work include cut-up techniques, electroacoustic collages based on prepared tapes and the deconstruction of musical themes and the human voice. From 1984 to 1987, he and JAFFE used to run the CAUSE AND EFFECT record label/ distro, and from 1989 to 1991 he published his own periodical ”ELECTRONIC COTTAGE MAGAZINE”, dedicated to industrial music in its various forms and the mechanisms of the INDUSTRIAL CASSETTE NETWORK, of which he was a major participant. He has appeared in and formed projects with his many artist friends, e.g. BWANA DOG with Al MARGOLIS (aka IF, BWANA), and NOMUSIC, MENTAL ANGUISH, David PRESCOTT or BIG CITY ORCHESTRA, to mention a few.
