17: Mina Schoen Unreleased - Black Arc
(seven sages mix)

The Original intention of this Album was to feature a few remixes from the previous Black Faction Album Internal Dissident Part - 1 Released on Soleilmoon Recordings, however as things developed thru lots of email conversations with other musicians it developed into a full on project spanning a number of artists from various disciplines within the global contemporary music scene.
Whilst attempting to stay relevant to the previous recordings in the similar vein, those who enjoyed the Internal Dissident will enjoy what is being delivered here.
Black Faction have mixed up and reconstructed the works to ebb and flow in the stylistic manner has many times in the past delivered on his previous works.

The Album has a similar structure, and much like Internal Dissident it carries the same 'sound magnifique soundmark' that is Black Faction.
The accent into Purgatory or not is another matter.. Thou it must be said this is very much a continuation of the same imitable style of Dieys Production, albeit generously helped along by his fellow souls... Let the journey continue......

01: Grains - John Hudak / 12: Älska dig min Kärlek - John Hudak
John Hudak has been interested in sound and music from the age of four when he began to play a variety of instruments. At the University of Delaware (BA, English 1981) and Naropa Institute for the Arts (1979), he studied video, photography, creative writing and dance. He then began to create taped soundtracks for his solo performance art pieces. In recent years, he has concentrated on sound, particularly natural sounds.
Hudak's current sound work focuses on the minimalism and repetition of sounds below the usual threshold of hearing, sounds that are filtered out or considered non-musical. These sounds are recorded, deconstructed and processed, their rhythms and textures being the basis for aural manipulations.

02: Cartesian - Black Faction / 03: Afghan Front Mix 3 - Black Faction / 10: Danté is Afraid of Virgils Vision - Black Faction / 16. Dissidents in Exile - Foreign Terrain
Black Faction aka Andrew Diey is currently living in Manchester, England.
He works professionally as a sound designer and music composer. His works have been performed on radio and television, and he has met with critical success with his music since his first commercial release in 1998. He released his first commercial release under the name Foreign Terrain in 1998 on Skam Record's MASK series. Since this release he has changed his recording name and direction to become Black Faction. The peices contained in this Album are unreleased and unheard before, and in the similar style to Internal Dissident.

04: Kaftanistanabul - Universal Deluxe
Universal Deluxe is Darren Lamborne, a veteran musician and sound designer who works within the games industry, as well as top game sound, he is also very able to lend his hand to produce underground beat music as in Kaftanistanabul (Afghan Front), he has remixed and breathed new life into a great rhythmical number.. and managed to use the vocals to great effect. we want more !

05: Odessian - Rapoon / 06: Caligulan - Rapoon
Rapoon is the ethno-ambient solo project of :zoviet*france: co-founder Robin Storey, born in 1955 in Cumbria, Scotland. While studying fine arts at Sunderland University, he began pursuing a long-held interest in sound manipulation by taking classes in electronic and experimental composition, additionally joining with friends to perform the works of Karlheinz Stockhausen (a key influence, as were the Krautrock bands of the early 1970s). In 1979 Storey formed the pioneering industrial group :zoviet*france:, remaining a member until 1993; the year previous, Storey issued the first Rapoon album, Dream Circle, its entrancing fusion of Indian ragas, African rhythms and experimental textures anticipating the evocative soundscapes of the many releases to follow. Also a noted visual artist, painter and animator, Storey's work was exhibited throughout the world, with two of his pieces on display at the Berlin Museum of Modern Art.
Rapoon & Black Faction will meet again.. on a double CD late 2002 / early 2003

7: Sepia Indate - Keith Fullerton Whitman
Keith Fullerton Whitman lives and works by the double-edged sword of being both a music writer AND composer-performer from his home, the Reckankomplex, in Somerville, MA.

Aside from composing and producing under his own name for the Kranky label, Keith's many musical aliases include Hrvatski (currently recording for the Planet-Mu label), DJ Hekla, ASCIII, and Gai/Jin. Hobbies include research on topics such as Early Electronic Music, Drum Breaks, Contemporary Art (specializing in Fluxus, Sound Art, and Sound Poetry), Video Game culture, and Macintosh Audio Software.

08: Oakland Concréte - Sutekh
Since 1997, Sutekh has released consistently inconsistent electronic music on local and international labels Force Inc./Mille Plateaux, Source, Background, Plug Research, Cytrax / Delay, Tektite, and his own Context. Manipulating computers, samplers, synthesizers, ping pong tables, Scrabble pieces, and found sounds, he has created everything from minimal house and techno to dense, dissonant noise collage. Unable to explain his reasons for making such music, he blankets himself with sarcasm. People often have a difficult time deciding whether or not he is serious.
Sutekh established Context Free Media and its associated record label in 1999.
