Across Europe industrial Music is running RIOT!
A new sound that defies boundaries! At the forefront of that scene is the french AUDIOTRAUMA label.
Since 2002, these artists blur the bondaries between electronica, digicore, breakcore, dark wave, ambient, noise and metal. Be prepared for a futuristic post apocalyptic noise.
"Using noise as a weapon to stir people's consciences. It's never about entertainement for us. It's about us and against the system. "
Audiotrauma was, in the begining, a collective of electronic musicians, born in 2002 in Strasbourg (France). The collective very fast took several direction: from organisation to production, from music to graphics and videos.
After 12 years of cultural activity we can hold some great moments and meets:
around 100 parties and concerts organised,
5 Noxious Art festival (2004/2005/2009/2010/2011)
24 CD albums released,
6 digital album/ compilations out,
many great artists (and humans) revealed as : Sonic area, Chrysalide, Twinkle, Hologram_, Horskh, Mind Necrosis Factor, Ten Data Keshin, amesha Spenta, KL, Republik of screens, Phenomedia (aka Punish yourself vs sonic area), Baxter Lilly, Le diktat, Lewsor, F.Y.D...
many deep collaborations with involved and passionated people from: ant zen, Dependent, Mashinenfest, elektraoanschlag, schlagstrom, LFA, Axess code, YB70, brume records, M-tronic, parametric, underground perversions, absurde, les enfants de la pluie, Ad noiseam, Hands, Kod Ex, Rustblade, Urgence disk, cortex records...
But in 2014 after all these great moments and actions,the label and the collective were dying slowly for last 2 years.
So Syco Trauma, from CHRYSALIDE, and actually artistic director of the label since the begining in 2002 decided to continue the adventure alone. Rather than mix the activities, composition and production, creativity and administration the 3/4 last members decided to seperate each domain of audiotrauma.
So now, the label restarts and with the first HORSKH ep called dawn (trauma 25), released in oct 2015 and a webshop/plateform called "traumatik boutik" ( www.audiotraumatik.com) .
