raxil4 is sound and sculptural artist Andrew Page...

raxil4's dark brooding dronescapes combine analog and digital sound sources, including field recordings, detuned radios, analogue televisions, computers, turntables, CD & mp3 players, tape recorders, 8-bit gameboys, handmade electronic devices, broken vintage equipment and handmade sculptural instruments (made from mainly found materials such as hospital crutches, driftwood and bones reclaimed from the River Thames). His works have been broadcast on terrestrial and internet radio, been featured on film soundtracks and have been exhibited in art galleries, in the United Kingdom, Europe, America and Canada. He has collaborated with musicians, poets, performance artists, sound artists and visual artists. He has performed many improvised concerts solo, duo, trio or as part of a large scale ensemble. Occassionally he sings with a Blues band.

"Droning dead stations, lumbering low-end static, and piercing mosquito whines combine with long lost choirs of marooned AM signals. Buzzing street lamps, the echoing yawn of flexing metal, and ambient bleep-scapes are all shrouded in a thick fog of tape hiss and delay. You're working the night-shift and drinking beef tea in the abandoned drop forge."
