Pablo St. Chaos
Lives and works in Austin, Texas USA
Pablo St. Chaos
is a darkwave/drone/minimalist/noise guitarist and improviser.
Beginning early in his youth, he started playing guitar and singing in
political punk bands. Constantly traveling across the vast rolling plains
and desert valleys of Texas, St. Chaos eventually left punk for minimal
drone installations. In 1999, St. Chaos formed the experimental post-rock
band, Chaos & the Addiction, which holds an improv philosophy and an ever-changing
line-up of over 25 musicians. He has performed solo & with C&theA all
over Texas and various other locations in the world. He also releases
lo-fi 4-track recordings, regularly.
"He creates dense atmospheres, restrained but brimming with feedback and pulsing guitar drones."
-- Richard di Santo, Incursion
Sans Division (from The Long Await Between Collapsed Lungs)
VOICES IN THE WILDERNESS:
Dissenting Soundscapes and Songs of G.W.'s America - PR90276
Voices In The Wilderness was created out of the anxiety and disillusionment of Bush's reelection on November 3, 2004.
This composition of twenty-six artists transcends music genres and ideologies with the common purpose of dissent
towards the havoc and bloodshed cause by Bush and the U.S. military's dominance. This collection of political protest music
spans experimental, rock, free-improv, electronic, folk, field recordings, and spoken word. This CD is ultimately a reminder
and wake-up call that we can not be silent during these times. Contributions from Pablo St.Chaos, Andre Custodio, Marina Lazzara, mJane, Marcos Fernandes, Bonnie Kane, Ray Sage & Mambo Mantis,
The Slow Poisoners, Neshama Alma Band, 99 Hooker, Cornelius Cardew Choir, Ernesto Diaz-Infante, Blaise Siwula, many more.

Probably one of the more accessible experimental, improvised noise cds you
are going to hear...if there is such a thing. On this CD, Diaz-Infante is
joined by Texas underground, psychedelic-drone, minimalist guitarists St.
Chaos and bohol in a mesmerizing work of layered prepared drones and lo-fi
