about

Amusia : 2000-2004 is a collection of music from the first four Dirty Knobs albums. I started recording my own music around 1994 as Xero Products. When Xero Products became more techno/trance oriented I started going back to more chaotic, less polished experimentation as Dirty Knobs.

While many of these songs may seem to take more traditional forms, they are always an experimentation with those forms. This might be because I was working toward something, trying to find deeper layers in the faint surrounding resonances. Sometimes I just had no clue what I was doing. (The latter is much more likely to be the case.)

Dedicated listeners may hear echoes of more current Dirty Knobs work. Some bits of this early material has been mined and fed to the voracious drone beast that Dirty Knobs has become. Some have also been reformatted into synth-noir-pop for The Electric Witch. As an example, “My SK-1” is new to this release and features previously unused elements recorded somewhere in the 2000-2004 era with my first keyboard, a Casio SK-1, as the only sound source.
