Real Name:
Radboud Mens
Hyware is the noise project of Radboud Mens. He is a sound-artist, composer and sound designer. He started creating noise-machines in 1988. In the early 90's he attached contact mics to dog’s brushes that he used to destroy vinyl records by scratch-playing them, boosting the signal through broken cassette-decks and recording the results. As Technoise he also made rhythmic-noise using a broken turntable. In 1994 these experiments were released as a two CD set by the British label i-Records. To achieve the full effect, listeners had to mix the two discs together themselves.
