My name is Scott E. Candey. I live in Portland, Oregon with my wife and three peculiar cats.
Crionic Mind started as a Record Label in 1995 that wound down in 2002. Since then, the name has evolved into a umbrella for my interests and creative output.
Over the years, I have been involved in numerous dark experimental projects. My primary musical project since 1994 or so has been Gruntsplatter. In addition to that I had a couple of short lived solo projects called Grimes & Cinder Skin, and have been involved in 4 different collaborative projects: Triage (w/ Ruhr Hunter), Blunt Force Trauma (w/ Deathpile), Umbra (w/Murderous Vision) and Circadian (w/ Nothing).
Beyond the music, I ran the label and related distro, co-edited Worm Gear zine for many years, have sporadically done a podcast called Professor Gruntsplatter’s Spookatorium, and done graphic design and some web work within the underground music scene.
Above ground, I’ve been involved in the print industry doing design and support for years.
In recent years, I have focused on writing fiction, pondering more music, and trying to hose off some of the artistic skills I had as a kid.
