BEAUTY UNDER SIEGE is a name that I stumbled upon once in a review describing the sounds of my bloody valentine. I liked the sound of it and have been using it as a name for the projects I have been working on for the past 12 years. The recordings on this page range from things I put together last week to things I did 10 years ago and can barely recall creating. There are a few collaboration tracks (as on the MEKD tracks and TechnoTortoise with Stephen Curran) and even a few things that make something new out of old ideas. Most of the names are next to meaningless, used merely as a way to distiguish. When available I've made notes to the approximate date of creation and equipment used. Please feel free to email me with comments or questions.
