Muslimgauze

Biography

For almost two decades, the late, confoundingly prolific Bryn Jones created music largely in a genre of his own making. The Muslimgauze project began as Jones' reaction to the Palestinian struggles, aided by a changing line-up of elusive others. Middle Eastern rhythms, vocalizations and instruments provide the source for complex, often aggressive, cutting-edge studio techniques that range from digital collage to fluid textural ambiance. At times his arrangements extend into heavy Dub dread, jagged dissonance and even skirt the periphery of western dance club beats. His bittersweet fusion of beautiful, soul-stirring music never steps far from its serious political intentions. Though the tracks are devoid of English, Muslimgauze cover art and titles state their position clearly to anyone familiar with Middle Eastern political conflicts. The music occupies the precarious position of existing in direct opposition to western imperialism while using western classical music as source material.
