Brijawi is an audio alchemist in search of lapis sonica. With his golem, the ever-expanding and faithful AWOMPCJP14497w/fd, he extracts, manipulates and recombines the sulphuric and mercurial components of sound to create new aural elements.
I started getting into electronic gear in 1993, but really began with my own set-up in '95.
I used to play live. It's been a long time, but I want to do it again, especially with the newer set-up.
I make a variety of music, but lately it's been nu skool beats and jungle/drum'n'bass. I spend alot of time honing the rhythm, striving for a groove that is constantly changing yet sounding uncontrived. I am influenced by the earlier jungle/d'n'b and by old and new hip-hop and electro.
Cabalistic principles have been inspirational and my work could be described as deconstructionist appropriation, but often, it's just groovy!
