This is the 25th anniversary of Dan Burke's ongoing solo/collaborative project Illusion of Safety, which defies categorization but "has been called ambient, post-industrial, electro-acoustic, electronica, sound collage, improvisation, and power electronics" according to illusionofsafety.com: The project "intrepidly charts the terra incognita where sound, silence, noise and music intersect. Using conventional instruments, sound generating devices and random objects, IOS hews sonic sculptures that deliberately provoke, mesmerize and even affront listeners". In 1986, Burke founded the Complacency label with Thymme Jones, one of many collaborators over the past quarter-century (including Jim O'Rourke, Ben Vida and Kevin Drumm). After a quiet few years, IOS now has a new CD coming out on Moscow's Wastyx Records, and a new 10'' on Vertonen's C.I.P. label. (-via Jason Sigal at WFMU's Beware of the Blog)
