AUN is the ambient doom project of Montreal’s Martin Dumais who describes his take on outsider metal meets shoegaze as ‘blight metal’. He has been a crucial contributor to the Montreal music scene for years. Elements of Aun’s sound can be traced to the classic period of ambient music marked by the likes of Cluster & Eno as well as to contemporary players such as Tim Hecker. AUN erects vast walls of crumbling distortion forged into apocalyptic ambient drift streaked with heavenly cosmic fx, crushing blasts of immolating hellish symphonies of rusted scraping strings and celestial electronic whiteout.
In a live situation AUN crafts his sound through guitar and a bevy of effects, offering a far more engaging visual experience than your average laptop based performance.
To date AUN has released seven solo records as well as a collaborative effort with Allseits. His latest release is "Motorsleep" (Alien8 Records 09).

B_TONG is from Basel and a former member of German industrial cult-group NID (www.nid-musik.com).The music of B_TONG lies somewhere between dark ambient, drone and experimental electronic sounds, he himself calls it “soundscapes”. He has toured throughout Europe several times and appeared at renown festivals. This year he completed a twelve-date tour of the east-coast of North America.Live he uses a multitude of effect-pedals, through which he feeds sounds generated by playing on various kitchen utensils, a metal spring, and other gadgets. He too is an artist who refuses to hide behind laptop and visuals - he IS the visual and his soundscapes are improvised on the spot. B_TONG has released a number of albums so far, his latest being: Structures CD (Noecho Records) and Hysteria MCD (Verato Project).
