WRITHING TREASURE FEAST
For two decades, Casey Chittenden Jones has been soundtracking the collapse of civilization under the moniker NOISEPOETNOBODY utilizing homemade instruments, synthesizers, field recordings, tape manipulation and modular equipment to create haunting, discordant, and broken sounds to express the need for creativity in a dying ecosystem.
Previously and hopefully again soon, NPN has spent much time performing in underground venues, bars, art galleries, abandoned buildings, and illegal DIY spaces – forever seeking to promote mental deprogramming through anti-commercial sonic immersion. Each NOISEPOETNOBODY set is a one-of-a-kind exchange of energy employing analog electronics and improvised inspirations via speaker cones. Jones has collaborated frequently with Butoh dancers and released a 12” (The River) with choreography instructions composed by Vanessa Skantze. He participated in and mastered Skantze’s Writhing Treasure Feast double album + 90-min butoh piece. He’s created music for Briana Jones’ dance video series as well. During the pandemic years, he spent much time creating new work and expanding his techniques for production.
Most commonly associated with the genres experimental, minimalism, noise, industrial, drone, his solo works and collaborations have been released by Scry Recordings (Insanity Mirror, Concrete Vitalist, & Drone series), Lens Records and Public Eyesore, among others. NOISEPOETNOBODY has participated in numerous festivals and series including NorCal Noise Fest, Eugene Noise Fest, Olympia Experimental Music Festival, and Modular On The Spot. Jones also originated the Driftwood Orchestra, Seattle Dismal Fest, Pillow Full of Drone and currently joins Peter Keller in the duo Dosenöffner. Jones also produced & performed in the 3-album Epos Nemo Latrocinium series with Tatsuya Nakatani, Tom Swafford, Dean Moore, & Joy Von Spain.
