About Author & Punisher
Author & Punisher is an experimental project of Tristan Shone from San Diego, California. He creates music combining doom metal with industrial and drone music and using his own constructed instruments. Studying sculpture at the University of California, Shone began building sound machines of his own imagination, noisy inventions resembling factory equipment inspired by industrial automatism and robotics. When creating new devices and projects, he used his experience, while he connected industrial automation and robotics with elements of a completely different optics, emphasizing… the erotic dimension of interaction with the instrument.
