In 2015, Kuroneko announced an open call for artists to remix their track "Waxworks" and in return, allow them to do the same to an example of their work.
Stray Transmission, (Nazar Ali Khan of Inner City Unit) and Upward, (Jack Chuter, author of Storm Static Sleep) were the first to take up the challenge. Stray Transmission applies his trademark urban field recordings to "Waxworks", while Upward chart a free-Noise trajectory. Kuroneko process Stray Transmission's Crossing with dark artifacts from their vaults of improvised sonics and reimagine Upward's Error of Judgement as an even more terrifying journey into anxiety and claustrophobia, as if that were even possible....
Kuroneko's Remixesss project remains open and anyone with an interest in participating should contact Kuroneko here: https://www.facebook.com/Kuronekonoise/?fref=ts

Michael Fairfax / Barry Witherden / Paul Khimasia Morgan
Michael Fairfax is a sculptor and sound artist. He has exhibited his sound-sculptures in the UK, USA and in Europe. In 1972 Michael studied ‘Musique Concrete’ in London with Ernest Berk. Later Michael created sound pieces for the Greenham Common Camera Obscura installation and during Year of the Artist; a sound installation at Hestercombe House, Somerset. Michael pursued his public art career alongside a period of sound exploration which culminated in him forming an electro-acoustic improv band called Tapes+Ashes also featuring Matt Saunders and Barry Witherden. That dissolved into Gimlet-Eyed Mariners featuring Barry and Michael; they had their debut album released on The Slightly Off Kilter Label in January 2012.
Barry Witherden has performed improvised electronic music as part of Tapes + Ashes and Gimlet-Eyed Mariners. He presents jazz and avant-garde music on his Sounds Like Jazz show for 10Radio and has written for Jazz Journal, Jazz Review and The Wire.
Paul Khimasia Morgan is interested in birdwatching, bricklaying and free improvisation. He has previously performed with Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga, Simon Whetham, Robert Curgenven, Ryu Hankil, Patrick Farmer and Duncan Harrison. His work has been released on Cronica, Con-V, engraved glass, Absence Of Wax and his own Aural Detritus imprint. He curates aural detritus concert series in Brighton, UK and writes for The Sound Projector.
"It moves through interesting bits of improvised electronic sounds, some squeak on the zither and has an occasional spooky atmosphere…"
- Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly on Fools Gold
Brambling [Dan Powell & Paul Khimasia Morgan]
Dan Powell (guitar, electronics) began making sound for installation works in London in the mid 90′s and was involved in live arts group OMSK. More recently he performs and records in a duo with double-bassist Gus Garside [ARC, Westhill Blast Quartet] under the name The Static Memories. Their first album; The bloudy Vision of John Farley was released on TSOKL last year.
Since moving to Brighton in 2000 he has concentrated on experimental and improvised music. He is a member of Brighton based collective The Spirit of Gravity and has performed across the UK. Dan is also a member of free improv duo Nil with Chris Parfitt.
"It is too much in the area of noise, or rather an extended use of sound..."
- Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly on Fringilla Montifringilla
