The Weight of Insignificance is a 2 disc release based upon 2 different styles perspective on 1 sound source. The original sound source is the hiss and light static from a wah pedal. The first disc is a slightly treated minimalist style. The second disc is a more densely layered Death Industrial approach, still incorporating the original sound source.

The normally screamin’ noise monster Marax takes an ultra minimal approach with this release, exploring the self-noise of a wah pedal. A droning, low-frequency oscillation with a mild static wash.

This reminds me, of course, of Nurse With Wound’s “Soliloquy for Lilith”, in which Steven Stapleton found that waving his hands around a certain effects set-up caused a seemingly magic sound response, creating an accidental, playable instrument.

The second track is the same source material as the first, taken in a more post-production / effected direction.

Both tracks are fascinating and yet extremely minimal.
