Ülex Xane

Real Name:
Ulex Xane
Profile:
Australian experimental composer and sound artist (b.1963 in Melbourne) active since the early 1980s in the genres of Musique Concrète, Electroacoustic, Acousmatic, Field Recording, Minimal (lowercase), Ambient, Power Electronics, Industrial, Harsh Noise, and Free Improvisation. Xane's works have been released on tape, LP and CD on many record labels worldwide. His work in the style of Musique Concrète was inspired by the legacy of his mentor in that field Walter Marchetti. His earliest Concrète experiments were recorded in 1975 at 12 years of age, a selection of which were released as 'Farewell to Matters of Principle' on his 40-year retrospective CD 'Stances / Semblance' (Cipher Productions). Further recent Musique Concrète works include the yet to be released CD 'BULB' (Believe Ultimately Less Bullshit) and the double CD set 'Askesis / Ekthesis'. Xane's sound work has been informed by his early participation in Surrealism, Conceptual Art, 'anti-art' movements such as neo-Dada and Fluxus, and his later work as a minimalist artist and his training in analytic philosophy. In earlier years, Xane's most celebrated / infamous project was Streicher, which has been described as one of the Industrial underground legends, and was the first Power Electronics project to exist in the Southern Hemisphere and the first worldwide of 'skinhead nOIse'. His other industrial/experimental projects in the 1980s included Nife Junger, Psy. Phalanx and The Moralunary Class. Solo projects since then have included Aghori Bhakta, Exterminant and Kulmhof, as well as collaborative projects Vhril and Disciples Of None (with John Murphy) and the improvisational Zone Void, which at times included up to 10 musicians under Xane's direction. He founded the labels Extreme in the mid 1980s and Zero Cabal in the early 1990s, as well as later noise labels Deathcamp and Moors Rapist. He obtained degrees in Philosophy and Art History from LaTrobe University, Melbourne. Xane is also a published poet, a contrarian, an audiophile, an implexive monochrome painter, and a frequent imbiber of fine peated single malt whiskey.
