I have been recording music under the moniker Gruntsplatter since 1993, and releasing it since 1995. Along the way I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with other artists I respect and count as friends.
I draw, if somewhat esoterically, from literature, and the death rattles and rituals of our eroding gene pool. As the project has evolved it has become largely based around personal and sociological themes that deal with the erosion of humanity and a dystopian inevitability.
Gruntsplatter has always been a malleable creature that congealed somewhere in the gray area between Noise and Dark Ambient. Through the detail of harsher textures mixed with layered atmosphere I am best able to make something evocative and subtle in its detail.
When I started doing this, I never expected to be able to work with some of the labels and people I have. If you have followed what I do, or ever given my music any attention at all, I really do appreciate it.
