QRD Interview with Chvad SB (2015)

From QRD #74:

QRD – What was your first guitar & what happened to it?

Chvad – My first guitar was my Opa’s 1960-ish Sears Silvertone. I beat it up a lot over the years, but I still have it. I get really emotionally attached to instruments. I can’t see ever parting ways with it.


Heartache With Hard Work – Chvad SB “Structure” (2018)

A deep electronic drone, punctuated by little ripples of organic sound. It’s the sound of quiet unrest, the slow etching of shadows cast by the light of a full moon. It reminds me a lot of the meanderings of early Pink Floyd records, but spooled out ever so slowly. There’s a contemplative quality, but one that […]

Musik an sich – Chvad SB “Crickets Were the Compass” (2014)

Der aus Brooklyn stammende Musiker Chvad SB stellt die Hörerschaft mit seinem Album Crickets Were The Compass auf eine recht harte Probe. Gewohnte Songstrukturen, wiederkehrenden Themen und oder gar Melodiebögen, dies alles gibt es auf Crickets Were The Compass nicht zu hören. Stattdessen werden ruhige soundtrackartige Klänge auf die Ohren der Hörer losgelassen. In diesen […]

Fame Reviews – Chvad SB “Crickets Were the Compass” (2014)

Chvad SB, in his latest, Crickets were the Compass, follows Brain Eno’s On Land dicta far more cogently than most, then gets spacefaced and even Can-rocks a bit. The Dust Cloud Permeates is a prime example of this, dark and subtle, moving in layers, cross-stitching modalities. Anyone with half a wit knows Satie’s ‘furniture music’ […]

Musicscan – Chvad SB “Crickets Were the Compass” (2014)

Der Musiker ist im Bereich von Industrial, Drone, Ambient und Noise erfahren. CHVAD SB war Initiator oder zumindest Teil von Gruppen wie Things Outside The Skin, Tongue Muzzle, Controlled Bleeding und The Qualia. Seit 1991 versucht er sich in verschiedenen Konstellationen und Stilen, um neuartige, düstere Klangwelten zu erschaffen. „Crickets Were The Compass“ ist die […]

Vital Weekly #933 – Tongue Muzzle “Lobster Cock and Friends” (2014)

Tongue Muzzle is band with a varying membership and with varying interests, but perhaps a unity in choosing odd titles for their releases. They have a background in improvisation and these two releases are quite apart. ‘Lobster Cock & Friends’ has many guests on bass, synthesizer, accordion and devices, whamolom beatbox and vocals, and is […]

New single from Chvad SB and Truus de Groot!

Film Threat – Chvad “GUT” (2013)

The killing starts early in Gut, but it will take a while for the viewer to figure out just what’s going on…. but that’s the creepy fun here. Just out on DVD and most streaming sites after a year at various horror film festivals (including DC’s own Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival last October), […]

Cinematic Shocks – Chvad SB “GUT” 2012

INDIE SHOCKS: Gut (2012)

‘Gut’ opens with a sudden act of violence with a murder being committed. We hear the diegetic sound of difficult breathing and choking as someone’s life slips away from them playing over the opening credits against a black background. Fading in to a close-up shot, we see a man with blood […]

Korg Monotron Jam

A Quick jam I tossed together using only the Korg Monotron and a bit of delay and reverb.
