entropic advance, water for your eyes|
entropic advance's water for your eyes release was inspired by the 1999 World Trade Organization protests and riots which occurred in Seattle, Washington later called, “the battle in Seattle”, by the media. The album features highlights from a four hour live performance recorded at the underground club, Mercury at Machinewerks, just over a month later. Unedited video documented by bios+a+ic on the streets during the riots was shown and audio from the video was used during the performance. The title was derived from the first field recording heard on the cd, which occured after a large crowd was tear gassed by the police and someone on a bull horn asks, “Anyone need water for your eyes, water for your eyes?” The cover art is a manipulated photo of a policeman in a gas mask. The music captures the raw emotion and chaotic turmoil of post WTO Seattle with this continually morphing dose of ambient noise and mind-warping rhythms.

entropic advance was founded in 1998 by bios+a+ic and noise poet nobody in Seattle, Washington and is currently based in Colorado. The project has been a constantly evolving collaborative of numerous innovative electronic and avant-guard sound artists.The signature sound features lush, haunting trumpet/vocals, and warped string/synth textures, blending seamlessly with heavily manipulated electronic beats, dark pulsating drones and glitches. The music is dark heavy euro-inspired electronics and ethereal noise improvisations, an artistic hybrid of clicks, thumps, rhythms and tones, with space for improvisation, always lucid and fresh for their live listeners. Each release explores different territory incorporating elements of ambient, noise, industrial, minimalism, IDM, experimental, and down-tempo styles.

Lush, haunting trumpet/vocals, and warped violin and synth textures, blend seamlessly with heavily manipulated electronic beats, dark pulsating drones and glitches, and thick layers of delicious ear candy. The music is heavy euro-inspired electronics and ethereal noise improvisations, an artistic hybrid of clicks, thumps, rhythms, and tones, with space for improvisation, always lucid and fresh for their live listeners. Each cd release explores different territory incorporating elements of ambient, industrial, noise, acid jazz, minimalism, IDM, down-tempo, etc. and is a sonic documentation of the current live/ studio collaborations of that time and place.
Always seeking new venues and presentations, ea has played clubs, museums, galleries, warehouses, and outdoor festivals, and turns each performance into a unique event, which will often include video projections (bios+a+ic, lowREZ, The Now device, Spaceboat tv.), dancers (belly, fire, modern, butoh) and guest musicians/events (transistor festival, textures, Dronerama, Seattle Noise Festival, cd release parties). With 10+ full-length cd releases, entropic advance has influenced thousands of people and all members continue to produce solo and collaboratory works. It seems that this is only the first chapter of what has already proven to be a legendary group of amazing sound artists.
