Complete Discography of GX Jupitter-Larsen
(Solo, in collaborations, and as The Haters)
C D :
CD featuring a series of 16 noise collages. Each individual piece made from
the sounds of things falling apart; some being partly or completely silent.
Some of the gaps between the pieces are silent, while others are of noise.
So while some pieces of silence are interrupted by gaps of noise and some
pieces of noise are interrupted by gaps of silence, other pieces of noise
are followed by gaps of more noise and other pieces of silence are followed
by gaps of more silence. The theme being the role that uncertainty plays
in knowledge. (V2 Archief, 1992)

Facts On Polywave", "Strength Through Emptiness". (We Never

THE HATERS 25th ANNIVERSARY
CD-Rom featuring a 25 hour long piece entitled "The Haters 25th Anniversary" in both the mp3 and ogg vorbis file formats. (Tochnit Aleph, 2004)
25 CDR box set: Each disc contains a noise collage of about 50 minutes on average. Every technique ever utilized by The Haters was incorporated into these recordings. Recorded during the first 6 months of 2004, this performance/release-project was only made available from the label's web site during the last 6 months of 2004. (TRONIKS, 2004) In 2007, slowpills posted the following review on I Heart Noise:..."vital in my reaching a fuller understanding of The Haters. All clean digital sounds that are what I would describe as 'none of the above', not beautiful or ugly, not connected with noise or electroacoustic canons... impenetrable (is) their best quality."
ZERO IS THE JOURNEY
CD featuring two collaborations between The Haters and The New Blockaders ( GX Jupitter-Larsen and Richard Rupenus ) entitled "Zero Is" and "The Journey". Packaged in a vinyl case with a 12 page booklet of images and Paneleze text by GX Jupitter-Larsen. (PsychForm Records, 2004) A review posted on Night Science:..."Zero Is The Journey is not destruction or entropy in action but the lull which follows the act, the void created by what used to be. The act of destruction is necessarily preceded by an existence - a previous wholeness - which is a necessity deemed superfluous to 'Zero Is The Journey' over its, at times, inanimate hour of anti-existence. 'Zero Is' bears the slightest discreet textural dynamic, utterly lifeless feedbacks the one constant as shards of the former existence appear at intermittent points in the travel; these are never hurried or complex, but a simple reminder of what occured before, that which the listener will never be privy to. The evocation is not zero-ness but of impending zero, the slide into nothingness and the coming loss. 'The Journey' is that bit closer to volatility - as if the journey is actually one away from zero - as the second half makes more explicit what only could be sensed in 'Zero Is.' Progress and dynamic movement are more obvious for the second half, which actually makes the structure of the work feel less rigid than the constricting approach of the first. 'Zero Is The Journey' is an audacious collaboration, the combination of much more than the sound; both more explicit and more intuitive than I thought possible, even from these two long-standing artists. That they manage to ignore activity, personality and musicality to just celebrate the way to nothing is one of the preeminent realistations of what both have been working many a year for."
MIND THE GAP 2005
Limited edition mini-CDR of "Mind The Gap 2005" which was made from stapling records together with an amplified staple-gun. (P-Tapes, 2005)
CD featuring three collaborations between GX Jupitter-Larsen and Allan Zane entitled "Banjax I-III". Standard edition of 900. An artist's edition of 100 was released in two parts. In the artist's edition, the CD is packaged in a silk-screened draw-string bag. It comes with a signed and numbered print by both, as well as a mail-in voucher for a Conceptual version of the release. (Somnimage, 2005) Joe Lombardo wrote a review of Banjax in the form of a poem here. Then Keith Moline in The Wire wrote: Less an album than a force of nature, Banjax is a noise showdown to end all noise showdowns. It veers constantly between noise as an annihilating force and noise as a product of destruction, between the corrupting and the corrupted. Electronically processed piledrivers and drilling equipment abound, along with an acrid, amorphous yet deadly ambience, like steam coming off an acid bath. Some passages sound like the duo are desperately trying to keep the lid on a volatile Pandora's box... It's extreme electronic noise, full of hate. You know you love it.
CD: "Nikumu 2007" parts 1 through 4. (Kubitsuri Tapes, 2007) Listen to it here.
CD: "Further" parts 1 and 2. (Transparency, 2008) Listen to this 2014 remix of it here.
THE HATERS, IN THE SHADE OF FIRE
CD: Remastered and expanded remix of the 10 noise compositions originally released as a LP in 1986. (Hanson Records, 2009) Listen to it here. Sam McKinlay wrote: THE HATERS' celebrated early work “In the Shade of Fire” acts as a document collection for the listener that also reflects THE HATERS strong textural aesthetic through object manipulation and recording that defines GX's place in the world of 'harsh noise'. Listening your way through the material is a studied and defined testament to different representational fragments of heavy sound and source manipulation. The tracks Glasm and Diti are explosive introductory and side concluding / framing pieces that highlight and pronounce the breaking and crashing down of material, all gelled with bass driven strikes whose trails deteriorate into hints of cascading dirty and dark 'Americanoise' distortion. Bebas powers through a heavier dynamic with conscious falling apart of source material, but in abstracted waves that suggest the material being rebuilt just to simply fall and crash apart again with a sense of powerful futility. Thuch enhances the textural elements of the explosions and crashing as the sharpness of the strikes are slightly rounded at the edges to expose an almost gurgling texture that moves and slaps with vicious perplexity. Taisic represents a very early 'Americanoise' study of hiss manipulation that is accented with minimalist scraping that bring to mind the force of process on top of the white noise line. Cassas is the album's meditated example of sharp shot-driven violence; articulated and seemingly layered for optimum cutting and breaking which bring forth sound dynamism from very physical deterioration. Fire 5 is an amazing example of a highly textural wall of sound that, to the contemporary fan of gritty and dirty crunch waves, is a primary early example of powerful crackle lines that focus on the inner dynamism of the sound itself. All of the material discussed above is made up of elements of physicality and process, but the tracks Iny 1 and Iny 2 act, for the listener, as the notes for the ideology of process and falling apart as they act as a more minimal, subtle, and exacting study of the scraping, scuffing, and hands on work of the artist as he manipulates the deteriorating materials. In essence, Iny 2 is an amazing concluding track that reminds the listener of the core focus and ideology behind THE HATERS' exemplification of grating sound via concept driven manipulation of tangible sources, the process, the aftermath, and the eventual recording that reflects all of the above sound qualities.
Bonus CD included with book of same title: "Saccages" parts 1 through 3. The book is an anthology of French translations of text by GX Jupitter-Larsen. The CD is in Italian and Japanese. (LUFF and Le Groupe de La Riponne, 2009)

EP with 5 tracks. (Self-released, 1981) East Berlin artist Robert Rehfeldt (1931-1993) utilized this record as the soundtrack for his 1981 short film "Art In Process". Unaware that the film had ever been completed, GX Jupitter-Larsen wouldn't actually see this collaboration in person until a chance visit to the Nationalgalerie in Berlin in 2003. It was being screened as part of a "Kunst In Der DDR" retrospective.

BIG TIME CRASH BANG 2008
LP of two noise compositions made from mangled-up car crashes sounds - tires squeeling, glass shattering. and metal crunching. (RRRecords, 2008) Listen to it here. de-elevator posted this review on his blog: Loops of car accident sounds repeated and over-lapped until PERMANENTLY burnt into one's memory, but... I find myself lulled into a sense of calm - despite the apparent abrasiveness of the sounds and how they clash with one-another. This LP is a place that I can inhabit and interject with my own thoughts, wishes, desires and anger if i wish - it is a blank slate, like no other recording that I can recall... It is both a release, and a cave to hide in - a wonderful creation of PURE ambience. This LP presents the listener with the tools and allows, dares them to create their own story. My story is re-written every fucking day, but I know this record will ALWAYS have a place for me to hide, develop my own narrative, and be uncomfortable in my leisure.
