A. Campbell Payne is a musician living in Massachusetts whose practice revolves around time, repetition, chance, and perception. Payne’s approach to composition is characterized by complex rhythmic structures, a harmonic vocabulary that explores consonant intervals in just intonation, and the use of complex generative systems. Drawing inspiration from dance, the history of computing and telecommunications, and the movement of nearby celestial bodies, Payne creates sonic environments that are at once approachable and disorienting.

I have had some horribly disturbing waking dreams of being a monstrous apparition, part-man, but mostly machine; soulless and demonic, terrorizing man and beast alike with sounds unlike any other, sounds that alternately inspire and chill, lifting spirits only to dash them again on some distant rocky shore comprised of dissonance and psychotic visions. I am haunted by sizable blackouts, what some refer to as lost time, and frequently awaken in unknown locations, smelling of Malört and regret with nothing to explain my activities save for a plectrum and a few patch chords.

Metal Tiger aka Sam Holland has been obsessed with electronic music and instrumental beats since he first heard DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing in high school. His hip-hop inflected electronic beats are both funky and experimental, groovy and spiritual. He got a real education in bass and bleeps in South Florida as part of the legendary IDM scene there, playing with acts such as Machinedrum and Flashbulb.

Returning to the Boston area, he has worked on the development of the MPC sampler, helped run the popular Meetup group Boston Modular and Synth, and thrown shows at venues like Dorchester Arts Project and Mayday. He is the founder of World Elevator Society Records, and is a member of Recursor with Archvillainy and Solune with Sophia Perennis. Metal Tiger’s influences include DJ Krush, Prefuse 73, Machinedrum, Orbital, and the RZA.
