About Dead Voices On Air

Spybey started his career in the North-East of England with postindustrialists Zoviet France in the late eighties before moving to Vancouver. It was here that Dead Voices On Air were formed. Spybey also worked under the name Propeller and was an original member of Download, who were formed out of the ashes of Skinny Puppy. Of late he has formed two bands, Beehatch with Phil Western of Download, and Reformed Faction, a duo with founding member of Zoviet France and Rapoon mainstay Robin Storey.

Yet, it is his work as Dead Voices on Air that perhaps most accurately defines the essence of his sound and the techniques that he has developed in a career spanning more than two decades. Spybey continues to make music with real instruments; rhythms cultivated by hand from his love of ethnological music and the usual array of grainy sounds and effected vocals. He describes it as “music for the eyes.”

“Spybey works hard at his art so you don’t have to: rather, as the listener, the participant, the absorber, it’s more important you ignore such now pat genre appellations as “industrial”, “ambient”, “soundscape”, et al, and instead gorge deeply on a wriggling, prickly, sometimes confrontational puzzle box of sounds”.
