    Ryan has been involved with making music for many years, including doing keyboards and programming for Pittsburgh area industrial/metal band Chain Slut while in highschool. His interest in metal and industrial evolved into discovering hardcore techno as well as abstract electronics artists like autechre, and his creative interests followed. While a film studies major at the University of Pittsburgh he began the Xanopticon project. His first performance as Xanopticon was at the Peace-off/Widerstand records tour show in Pittsburgh, the summer of 2001, and the headliners were impressed by his sound that they signed him to release a record on the spot. His sound is comparable to artists such as Venetian Snares and Richard Devine, where breakbeat assaults mangle with futuristic distorted synth sounds. Since then he has evolved and refined one of the most advanced sounds in hardcore electronics. He has released 12" records on Peace-Off, Mutant Sniper, a 7" each on Mirex and Tigerbeat6, a full length LP "Liminal Space" on Hymen records and numerous compilation appearances. He has done US tours in promotion of the Circuits of Steel Pittsburgh electronic compilation, played all over the east and midwest, completed two European tours, and dozens of local Pittsburgh shows. He recently was one of the headliners on the experimental stage at the Movement Festival. He performs live using a single laptop and a dj mixer, wildly cutting and editing his own tracks and fragments on the fly. He both encourages and exemplifies the thrash-and-headbang breakbeat moshpit style of performance.

    Greg is one of the newer additions to the crew, but has quickly gained a lot of respect because he brings a different sound into the spectrum. He has been involved with making music since 1998, experimenting with keyboards, fx pedals and all-night noise sessions. Aesthetically he was heavily influenced, but quickly grew just as equally bored with the sounds of the ebm-industrial scene, his experiments started taking a more refined shape over the past few years, with a central core of dark rhythmic noise, but also borrowing influences from glitch, breakcore and other harsh electronics. His sound is comparable to such artists as Synapscape, Manufactura or Converter. He is currently shopping around demos as well as refining a full length album. He has performed in Detroit, Ohio, as well as locally opening for Needlesharing, and he won the first annual Galactic Ass-Dragon laptop battle in Pittsburgh. Live Greg performs off of a laptop sometimes employing a mic and fx pedals, his sound is intense and throbbing. He has also been known to wear a gas mask on stage.

    Dave has been making music as a hobby for several years now under the
    8Cylinder pseudonym, and has developed a very unique sound and process, focusing on hacking Nintendo Gamboy cartridges. However, he is better known for his programming knowledge than his sounds (although it’s only a matter of time before people know both). Before founding the rhinoplex server Dave was involved with the Carbon Defense League (carbondefence.org) who are a collective of hackers and activists ("hactivists") who are interested in using technology to subvert the status quo. He has applied those same ideas to his music. He employs a laptop combined with a self-designed "Gameboy Sound Rig" that features four gameboys running custom designed software for tone generation, drum tracking and noise making. His live sets have been evolving over time, but his sounds range from downtempo-abstract videogame bliphop to twisted 8-bit hardcore blasts, with things mutating in-between - comparable at times to Otto Von Shirach, Dat Politics or other times Somatic Responses or c64 tracker artists. He's got a pretty no-nonsense style on stage, but the sounds speak for themselves. He has played numerous shows in Pittsburgh opening for the likes of Doormouse, Accelera Deck, Aelters, as well as at the monthly RE:pULSE night.

    Geoff has been involved with electronic music for many years as a fan, promoter and DJ. He started the transition from fan to being involved with music first hand in 1996 when he started a weekly radio show "The Cutups Method" on 92.1 WPTS, a Pittsburgh college radio station, which focused on jungle, gabber, noise and cut-up sounds. Gaining experience on the air he started making the transition to DJing in public, taking the moniker "cutups" after the style of writing popularized by William S Burroughs, where words are cut-and-pasted randomly. Applying that concept to music and DJing, but adding an element of controlled-chaos, he started playing house parties, clubs and raves - initially with a mix
    of jungle, hardcore and noise, but over the years he has become a voracious
    record collector, focusing on all kinds of abstract-electronic music, but drawing from "idm", downtempo, electro, hip-hop, rhythmic noise, strange disco, novelty records and more. From 1998-2001 he started a promotional group PBS who through several events that sought to challenge the stereotypes of what raves had become - featuring DJs and live acts, hardcore and abstract electronics alongside more danceable fare, and at times mixing genres with a range of
    sounds from hiphop and grindcore at the same events. Starting in 2001 he became a resident at the weekly drum and bass night FUZE, which has become the longest running D&B night in Pittsburgh. In 2001 he also started his own record distribution and mail-order company, WRECKED, which specializes in abstract electronics. He currently DJs a variety of one-offs as well as the weekly FUZE night, runs the distro, and promotes shows. He has played bills with artists as diverse as Venetian Snares, Peaches, and UFO. He is probably best known for spinning cutting edge breakcore and abstract electronics, but then again, you never quite know what he might pull out of the record box when he's spinning.
