Under both the Cheapmachines alias and his own name, Phil Julian has been venturing across various strains of unorthodox sound since the late 1990′s, with his prolific output on a catalogue of imprints encompassing sonic textures that run the gamut from harsh squalls of noise to compositions using hyper-minimalistic timbres and drones.   He currently lives and works in London, England.  Studio recordings and live performances within Europe and North America have focused on the use of analogue electronics (particularly unstable and/or chaotic systems – modular analogue synthesizers, feedback, contact microphones, objects and surfaces) and computer based works.  Audio works by Julian have been published on labels including Entr’acte, Banned Production, Tapeworm, Harbinger Sound, Staalplaat (Open Circuit imprint), con-v, Anarchymoon, Second Layer, Beartown Records, Homophoni, Zeromoon as well as numerous compilation appearances.  He also runs the Authorised Version label.   Julian has collaborated on remixes, recordings and performances with Maurizio Bianchi, A Band, Tomas Korber, Michael Renkel, Ryan Jordan, Jason Kahn, Daniel Jones, Kostis Kilymis, John Macedo, Nihilist Assault Group, The New Blockaders and GX Jupitter-Larsen of The Haters as well as being a member of the improvised drone ensemble Signals with Mark Beazley and Chris Gowers and playing as part of Mark Wastell’s improvising group The Seen.

“The audio experiments conducted by London resident and improvised drone specialist Philip Julian have bewildered and intrigued us for a hell of a long time now. Ever since we witnessed an intensive and utterly relentless computer-based performance at Area 10 in Peckham, London, we were absolutely hooked. Whilst being a regular on the live circuit, Philip also specialises in sonic installations and here, under his rather fantastic CHEAPMACHINES alias, continues his exploration and scrutiny of the organ continues with two decadent, alluring and warm compositions. Sincerely I have no idea It left any physical copy of this tape but you can ask for it  HERE .
