Cathepsin, is an organic compound stored in our bodies for our
death. It serves to breakdown our cells and tissues for the bodies
return to the earth's organic matrix. From birth to closure we are
carriers of its inert state.
The recordings of Cathepsin are inspired by the deconstruction of
organic matter. The works are based on complex modulation schemes that deconstruct themselves into textural forms writhing and decaying as if they are being reduced to carbon ash.
The modulation schemes used include: Intermodulation, which is
multiple laying of ring modulation schemes and free running feedback hubs.The concept of Intermodulation was first described by Karlheinz
Stockhausen in his work, "Telemusik". Cathepsin was realized and recorded at the Laboratory of Hearing by, Marc McNulty. Cathepsin, was released on CD by Isomorphic Records, Washington, United States.

"Have you ever stumbled into a music store and buy accident picked out an album that later came to be the prize of your collection? This tape fits into that category. When it arrived in the mail I was expecting a noise and feedback type of sound, but instead I was extremely to pleased to hear something quite different. The music has deep haunting qualities within. Anyone who enjoys extensive ambient soundscapes rolling through ancient dungeons and echoing through lost corridors will enjoy this release. Photophobia is: Marc McNulty" - Review from, (1995)
