about

This album was pieced together of a number of tracks I had created which were sitting around. The final drive and inspiration was presented by Eustace John. The software used for programming and mixing was Reason. Samples were taken into Adobe Audition. Guitar ran through a four port analog mixer, Jamlab analog to usb input and distorted in Guitar Rig 2. Drum Kit From Hell was imported and used heavily. Live triggering done via KeyRig49 by MAudio. Final album mixing and tweaking done in Adobe Audition.

The song Phoenix was named because the track was one I initially hated for reminding me too much of stuff off my first album but later rose in appreciation. It was named over a year before we moved to the city named Phoenix without any prior knowledge of plans out ahead.

Eyeliner is a track created out of the very addictive beat from the Lil Mama song Lip Gloss. I felt it was a huge beat with horrible lyrics and almost no production at all. After my mother and sister listened to it enough I finally broke down and spent a couple days getting my hands in it.

Christmas Headache, formerly named Jesus, was created entirely at Central Life Science on a laptop. A coworker named Jesus had input on the short track's evolution.

Burnout features guitar from Josh, aka Navin from Bloodcow. My rig crashed a day before his planned period working with me. So by the time I got it back up and running there was a god awful feedback we couldn't get rid of. Figured it out AFTER the session. But it was too awesome not to use.

Stimulated and Feelingless is a demo off what was to be on The River of Piss.

Who is Symphony of Noise?

Erik Smith has created the vast majority of all Vents, safe for noted guitar or layer work here and there on select tracks. NIN 1 and 3 are essentially sound collages and vastly edited Nine Inch Nails layers. NIN 2 is merely a mixtape with some minor edits - as is the Tech N9ne mix. All Zero releases are essentially EPs, save for Vibrations, which was an experiment. ... more
