Ready to hit down hard on all lovers of Noize and Harsh Experimental Electronics is the recent and third volume of the so-called "Hard Wire Tapes"-series which is put on the circuit as a limited edition of 15 tape copies only via Dr. NoiseM Tapes, leaving 158 seconds room on each side for the featured artists to express theirselves through heavy eruptions of audio material. Whilst Tostado fills this room with layers of sirens, processed human voices screaming in panic or overwhelming angst and unpredictable HarshNoize bursts adding another dimension to ongoing the sonic depiction of chaotic scenes happening in an urban environment we see Dr. NoiseM experimenting with sterile but buzzing electrical feedbacks, shunt faults and weird filter action going from time to time. This amalgamation is force-fused with sounds seemingly extracted from a uberly tilted pokey or a crashed Amiga game in the very end of this short piece before it - pretty abruptly - comes to a halt. If you're listening to music by Merzbow, Lasse Marhaug or The Haters when you start to wake up in the morning you'll like this for sure.
