Under the Connive alias, Michael Stumpf (Faithful, Esper Werm, Drosophila, et al) presents cathartic slabs of dense multi-sourced noise straight to your dome.

The self-titled debut tape begins with "Source Bonding" a densely-layered bed of granular synthesis based on a Denis Smalley concept. There is a sound that appears to be in another room, with the door opening every so often to reveal shrieking textures. Connive establishes a sense of stylistic otherness from the get-go, gliding in-between numerous textural and perceptive angles, at times crashing straight through them.

The sound of a tape player is heard and "Senseless Carnage" begins oscillating itself around the listener's environment. A dizzying and gripping piece that lasts over seven minutes and spills into "Cheek of Sorrow", a classic Midwest basement banger (if you know u kno). The tape comes to a close with "Contaminated "by the barracks and the sacristy"", a jarring and impressive 12-minute jam that travels in all directions. Stumpf's creative decisions in-the-moment are what give his compositions power. There is not one idle second on 'Connive' - these four tracks are distinct in their raw energy and direct in their statements.
