A legendary noise project by Gerald ”X” JUPITTER-LARSEN (b. 1959). An American born and raised in Canada, musically with a punk rock back- ground, he is a sound artist, writer, filmmaker, a painter and he also deals in mail art and multi-media performences. He is often assisted on stage by other members, usually local experimental musicians and artists in whatever town in which his performance happens to take place. A debu- tant of 1979, he initially staged modest, conceptual para-theatrical perfor- mances with elements of expressive destruction and ugliness. During the 1990s he was the sound designer for the performances of Mark PAULINE. With time he made his appearances progressively varied with pre-prepared sound material featuring extremely distorted sonic textures. His manife- stoes and statements emphasise his dissociation from any forms of musi- cal expression, including industrial music. His antimusical structures are produced exclusively with self-made noise-making mechanical devices and sounds obtained through rubbing various metal and rough surfaces against each other or their deliberate destruction.
