WTF is Ampscent?

Ampscent (Jacek Doroszenko & Marcin Sipiora) is a multidisciplinary duo currently focused on using the contemporary electronic music landscape to select and redefine the notion of noise and failure as desirable factors. Their music is based on cold but powerful, consistently thrilling tones and multi-layered sustained tensions while remaining in a distant territory.

The sonic resonance that emerges is rejecting and hovers towards alienation. The music employs signatures from industrial and noise, but also veers towards contemporary club connotations. As much as Ampscent's use of equipment, its disruption and thrashing reveal an attempt to identify the act of listening as a potentially uncomfortable space. Katharsis and relief come after trauma.
