Grimes was a short lived side-project. It explored more beat driven Power Noise/Trance avenues that are combined with drifting noise to juxtapose the evolving washes with the urgency of the rhythmic elements. Based around a very free form concept, all material was improvised around evolving beat structures.
It began as a lighthearted experiment never meant for release. However within a matter of a couple days an hour of material was completed that went on to become the “The Infernal Machinations of Hell’s Grim Tyrant” cassette. I expected that to be the quick end of the project, but the cassette received a lot of positive feedback, and generated additional interested. 3 tracks contributed to the “An Anthology of Noise Vol. 1” double CDR compilation on Fusion Audio Recordings followed and marked the end.
