Artist Profile: Caustic Castle

Caustic Castle (Richmond, VA): NanoHz No.2

Caustic Castle is Kenneth Yates, also of the duo's Harm Stryker (w/ Constant Mauk) & Insects With Tits (w/ Chefkirk). Kenneth Yates utilizes the no-input mixing technique coupled with live processing using various filters and pedals. With his music usually comes an abstract visual fascination with architecture and is psyhogeographical effects on the human psyche. Inspired by past revolutionary art and social movements like DaDa & the Situationiste Internationale, he struggles to find a parallel between art, sound & social unrest, or just perhaps provide a sort of soundtrack to it all.
