Anaphylaxis is the sound of universal tension. For over 10 years now, Jason Coffman has quietly and meticulously created a musical world that, much like material reality, contains both overwhelming chaos and unparalleled beauty. Taking (and twisting) cues from popular music and post-modern culture, Anaphylaxis has become the antithesis of the musical status quo: noise for the masses... Noise For Lovers.
Anaphylaxis is continuously evolving and breaking new & previously unexplored ground. The results are some of the most compelling noisescapes in modern music. What one hears - or rather, experiences - are soothing atmospheric textures, obscure industrial noises, avant-garde trip-hop progressions and haunting shoegazer-like drones. Jason's cut-and-paste combinations of sung female vocals (courtesy of Teresa Santoski), sampled media sounds and technology gone awry have given him a sort of underground cult status. This has resulted in his working with and re-mixing the likes of Rivulets, Xn, True Colour of Blood, Drekka, Mt. Gigantic, Signalbleed and Schizoid.
Jason began recording as Anaphylaxis in 1994. His first releases were distributed via tape trading. His first self-released CD (Component) came out in 1999. After a series of CD-R releases on his own Anaphylactic Shock Recordings imprint, he re-issued his catalog online through Mannequin Oddio Media from 2002 through 2004. Noise For Lovers is the 7th full-length from Anaphylaxis. Jason's extensive discography also includes several split EP's, compilation appearances, online-only releases and even a limited edition "best of" compilation.
Noise For Lovers is a co-production of Parasomnic Records and Mannequin Oddio Media.
