Making his return on Misanthropic Agenda since critically acclaimed and criminally limited "Recordings Of Voltage Errors, Magnetic Fields, On-Site Testimonies & Tape Tension" LP.

Assembled and mastered by Francisco Meirino at Shiver Mobile, 2012-2014. Features "Techniques Of Self-Destruction" originally a piece for eight speakers commissioned by Jerome Noetinger for l'Audible Festival, Paris 2012. Born in 1975, Francisco Meirino is active since 1994 (as phroq until 2009) in sound and live performance, he explores the tension between programmable material and the potential for its failure by working mainly with the computer, magnetic fields detectors, reel-to-reel tape recorders, piezo transducers and various acoustic devices.
