Mike Hansen "Once Held A Lighter High In The Sky"
- Label: Etude
Mike Hansen loves his turntable so much, it's almost hateful. The Toronto-based sound artist takes just about any sound that can be produced by a turntable and flips it into thick, piercing screeches of blistering noise. Not far from the tree of Mute's legendary noise-monger NON, Hansen has created a world that may make one's headphones feel as though they've been possessed by a gnarly nocturnal force.
