    So... do we have musicians, bands and bandmembers, recording artists and electronic sound-torturers here in Whitechapel yet? Wave a paw if so.

    waves paw - used to torture other peoples work without permission, then some with permission then started making noises again for the hell of it. made a downloadable album with a few people that mixmag favourably reviewed. that and it's re-mastered with more spooky noises version can be found here. a proper album with allsorts of shenanigans and showbiz guest stars such as colin newman from wire, richard x (reciting francis bacon over a drunken night in the radiophonic workshop), severed heads' tom ellard adding lost in space samples and noises to our wheezy generator noise and jd twitch of optimo in glasgow on some drums. sounds like a fight in a pub during a brian eno performance. album can be nicked from here if anyone doesn't fancy a gamble buying the thing. and bizarrely, you can get it in woolies online, as well as asda !

    I sing, and write lyrics and such.... a dear friend of mine does all the music and programming. We only have roughs posted so far, but in a few weeks, we'll have good clean vocal recordings and lovely professionally mixed stuff up, and available for people.

    I play guitar mostly, and can fake other stuff well enough.
    I'm trying to put a band together. It all hinges on my brother's schedule. Thinkin of calling ourselves the Man-chines (inspired by the He-Man and She-ra christmas special.)

    Very good stuff there munin218, I especially like "Static", which doesn't sound at all rough to me.

    I play harmonica and keyboard/noise/space/fuzz with The Myoclonic Jerks. We'll get some demos posted on the internet eventually. Right now, it's just a college thing.

    munin218, I concur with biglig - 'Static' is sounding really good. Promising stuff.

    And frenchbloke, I'm downloading as I type - "sounds like a fight in a pub during a brian eno performance" sold it to me. My downloading isn't because I'm not willing to take a gamble - I'm just really, really poor.

    Show No Mercy thrash/hardcore crossover. We've got one self-released EP out, and we're working on a second. It's probably the biggest (but only) money pit I've got in my life, but it's fun. It keeps my best friends and I close.

    Ex member of Pyre, Lance of Longinus, Panda Parade, Royal Sons of Dude, Moonflower (fucking hated that name), Fucking Mouths. Current member of unnamed noise/ambient project that is really just me and two other people getting drunk in a recording space.

    There's a plan in the works to compose an entire LP of songs about LeGuin's the DIspossessed, but that's going to be awhile coming.

    Makes me think of an overweight tarot card reader.

    I have 3 main musical(?) outputs.

    I play guitar, sample mangle, and tape slime for my shoegaze/stoner metal/laptop project dustperiod. dustperiod@myspace a song for my fellow Whitechapel residents in a decent quality mp3 rate Magaera from an upcoming album w/o a solid title yet

    I rhythmically arrange tracks in a manner to facilitate dancing as DJ Tacopunch. I also roll all of my non-shoegaze remix work under the same umbrella. Most recent mixtape is here and you can peep at the tracklist at the DJ Tacopunch Myspace

    I play a variety of circuit bent keyboards and home made electronics in the casio comes grindcore dance explosion styling of Dance Accident (aka Dig Dug Dildo) with the talented Ms Allison and we're currently putting together our first EP.

    Once I make some tomato soup I'm looking forward to taking a listen to some of the music posted here.

    I work in a covers band (drums/vocals). Play standing up with an electronic hybrid kit.

    Write and record music at home. Saves arguing with band members, and I can be as silly as I want.
    I lean towards guitar-heavy pop. It's like I want to be a techno version of Dave Grohl.

    Bands are such a fragile thing.

    My favorite band of all time is an Aussie band by the name of TISM (This Is Serious Mum). Their balaclava clad anti-social antics are incredible.

    There's something wrong with me?

    I've been playing theremin for about 8 years or so, nothing serious. Just find it relaxing to plug it into a delay/echo pedal and make alien soundscapes.

    Biglig and MonkeyBusiness--- Thank you! :)

    I'll be sure to post when the shiny finished ones emerge from the studio, too. :)))

    been doing THIS off and on for several years. called 'Human Machine'.

    been off for most of this year due to the amount of work i've been doing comics-wise. hoping that changes soon. not the comics work, but the band being "off"

    Vacuum tube design or one of the newer ones? I remember for a while you could only build them yourself, and getting the pieces was ridiculous. Also, do you have any samples? I'd love to hear a theremin with delay/echo.

    i almost built a theremin - designed the board, got to the wind your own coils bit and gave up. I reallly want to make a hand cranked cassette player that plays noise as you crank it. (pan_sonic / jimi tenor / sahko recordings use them in a box with a crank handle - sounds amazing)
