= solo project by Bert Vanden Berghe, DIY homerecording musician, born 1977 and living in Ghent, Belgium.
Passive Cable Theory
= noise, ranging from drone and soundcollages to industrial and harsh noise, and everyhing in between.
“Although passive cable theory offers insights regarding input propagation along dendrite segments, it is important to remember that dendrite membranes are host to a cornucopia of proteins some of which may help amplify or attenuate synaptic input.”
= experimental improvisations by Luther Blisset and He Who Ha Ha (a brunkville character). Sometimes other people join them. There are no rules or rehearsals: now and then Karen Eliot comes together and improvises – most of those sessions are recorded. Some of them get released.
= music based on improvisations on randomly detuned (mostly acoustic) guitars.
Or, to quote Mr. Padilla from Dog Eared Records:
“Invertebrata: or how I learned to stop worring about tuning my guitar and love the mad, crooked improv of Bert Vanden Berghe (a.k.a. brunk). Genre splicing goes beyond post modern here (or even post mortem), so, this is not quite your average atonal brut jazz folk with some touches of underground rock album. In fact, this is not your average chance-happy, rare weirdo album either… I doubt this thing could be imitated at all, not even by its autor (but then again, why would he want to do a thing like that?). Which goes to show, sometimes an outlandish sequence of wrongs can make an unique RIGHT, right?”
= punk rock’n'roll band formed by Sil Goossens (vocals), Bert Vankeirsbilck (drums), Klaas Vanden Berghe (bass) and Bert Vanden Berghe (guitar).
