"I started making cassettes in 1987 in Texas under the alias DRSUK. After relocating to Cleveland, OH, in 1992 I released a number of cassettes as Erosore for Peter Keller's Cold Meat Portioning label. Peter and I also worked together on a project called Womb, which put out a couple of cassettes as well. During that time I was an active member of the Cleveland noise scene, performing in the aforementioned groups and with David Jeffries in Iliac Passion. In September of 1996 I moved to the Triangle. I have since then performed solo under Bryce Clayton Eiman, with Craig Hilton as Dirt Log, with Shaun Sandor as Bicameral Mind, and with Joe Hendrix as Weather Machine.
My work tends to be polyrhythmic, and is often constructed from loops of non-musical source material (bird calls, radio static, farm machinery, etc) -- although I am certainly not above using more traditional instruments to accomplish my purposes. Various listeners have described my music either as 'neopagan dance grooves', or 'drums and drones', or 'worse than dead air'. Although I am extremely catholic in my listening habits, the three bands that have inspired me the most are Coil, Arcane Device, and Nocturnal Emissions."
