The Violet Grind is my experimental sound project. Although I
working actively with TVG since 1997, the concept has been
around since 1992.
I used to try to think of the whole TVG experience as a band,
but I've come
to realize that it's more of a "project". Or maybe "experiment"
is a better
word for it. I think in terms of trying to create sounds in a
of noise and/or use a certain technique or equipment. The
results are often
quite different from my intentions, which is always the most
part of the sound creation process.
Since 1997, TVG has appeared on over 30 D.I.Y./homemade cassette
several compilations and CD releases worldwide. I've also been
and reviewed in a few 'zines, including: Neo-Barbaric, Bad
Alchemy and Shit
Kebab. LABELS, I'm always interested in doing releases in any
and I'll send you some of my stuff! 'ZINES, interested in
reviewing my stuff
or doing an interview? Get in touch!
