Weirding Module is Michael Troutman's solo project, Michael is better
known for playing bass guitar in the psychedelic rock band, Awesome Color. Weirding Module sounds like a heady mix of synthesizers, samples and rhythms, heavily influenced by repetition (Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Tony Conrad, et.al.) and seasoned with some Tangerine Dream, dub and dancehall reggae. Weirding Module's first release was an American Tapes bootleg cassette for the No Fun Festival (NYC) in 2004. Other releases have followed on Troutman's own label Senseless Empire (US), as well as releases on Ozonokids (Spain), Scumbag (US) and Silver Ghosts (Netherlands).

Future releases are due on: Night People (US) and an LP on Ultra
Eczema (Belgium).

shows in Europe & U.S.) and an extensive back catalogue of many
European and American releases, Bill Kouligas (occasional Sudden
Infant member) using electronics, analogue synths, tapes, strings and
reeds builds his own improvised heavy telepathic universe and conjures
up a hazy psychedelic mayhem; from lulling numbness to fierce noise
outbreaks. He has collaborated with the likes of Chris Corsano, Anla
Curtis (of Reynols, Karen Constance, Damo Suzuki (CAN), Mark Durgan
(Putrefier/The New Blockaders), Ashtray Navigations, Astro (CCCC),
