I make recordings under the name omnid. My real name is Albert Casais. I've been active in
the "field" of recording (pun intended...) for the past twelve years or so. I began my
recording career under the name Omayyad Zoam and had several releases on cassette on my
own Jill*Off label(1991-1996) as well as compilation appearances on several other labels.
I stopped the label in 1996 and continued recording for my own personal enjoyment but not
releasing anything. I am now ready to let the world hear what I've been up to. I will have
a cd-r coming out on my own label Shadow Puppet. I don't have a website right now (but soon will).
If anyone wants to reach me I can be found lurking on the Phonographers yahoo list or by
email at: email@example.com.
Ben Owen works with projected slide film manipulations and experimental
electro-acoustic sound composition. His collaborations can be found with
Ting Ting Jahe, tiptip and radio broadcast transmission works with
free103point9 and broadcastatic.
The theme's of organic instability and decay were first imployed with the
processes of stone lithography printmaking. He has continued to work with
these theme's in sound and composition, allowing source material of field
recordings taken from everyday phonomena to be listened to simply as they
are, in extended duration's, or filtered through digital synthesis and
