Author & Punisher

Author & Punisher

In the industrial music and metal sculptures of Tristan Shone man and machine melt together. The San Diego-based robotics engineer with a degree in sculpture literalized the idea of sonic sculpture, fusing the ethereal and the physical into a brand new vision. Some of that can be seen in the unique instruments built from electronics and steel he's invented and calls "Drone Machines”. Author & Punisher is characterized by grim soundscapes, pulsing tumors of doom, drone, noise, and, covertly, pop, with his vocals recessed inside demonic sub-bass, concussive percussion, and skirling frequencies which resonate through the body, captured onseveral recordings of which the lauded ‘Krüller’ is the most recent.
