wyxmm (sound artist)
wyxmm ... ... ... doesn't mean anything. Made up from a series of random but coincidental letters. It looks like, but not entirely, a word that sounds like, but not quite like, something that can be pronounced. The sound/tunes/music/noise created are exactly the same ... wyxmm, an emergent esoteric sound artist, excels at disarming melody lines and using random sound samples to add texture to his pieces. His works can be said to be a cross between music and soundscape. Tools - Guitar, bass, laptop and whatever and whoever he can find.
Influences : Late nights with no sleep
