Sir edgar carpenter logo.png Sir Edgar Carpenter is a noise/experimental musician from Mexico City, born in 1994 and working since 2008.

Initially influenced by The Beatles's "Revolution 9", he is relatively known in the internet for his continuous noise and experimental releases. His most known works are a series of albums dedicated to animated TV shows (denominated Killing Cartoon Society's Saga) that was released from 2010 to 2018. He's owner of a net-label called Scriptsound Recordings since 2010, and has organized compilation albums with many artists and musicians around the globe. Edgar says he picked up his moniker due to his love to British musical culture, while he took the surname Carpenter as a mock to the British band, The Carpenters, and because he "just liked how it sounded".

His music style has changed over the course of the years, but it's mostly based on transformation of sounds and creating bizarre sound-collages with a "noisy appeal". He puts special emphasis on reverberated sound and a "symphonic-wannabe" structure, frequently trying to avoid monotonous or static noises. Although his primary source of editing and producing music is via laptop (using audio unit effects, samplers, tone generators, granular synthesis, turntable softwares, MIDI sequencers and synthesizers), he has used analogue sounds as basic source material for his noise, such as field-recordings, found objects, handmade instruments, and more prominently, his own voice through multiple effects (a technique he likes to call "Vocal Synthesizers"), as well as real drums and other instruments. He has cited Merzbow, Masonna, Achim Wollscheid, Rudolf Eb.er, Michael Cretu, Vangelis, Frank Zappa, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Yoko Ono and George Harrison's "Electronic Sound" as his strongest influences. He rarely performs live, preferring studio work and collaborative sessions, although in 2011, he performed for an almost-private minitour as a trio consisting on fellow collaborators Sidd Anders and Adolph DicksAppointed (R.I.P.).

Edgar also has a non-noise/experimental side project called My Wrong Note, dedicated to more conventional and commercial "instrumental art-pop-rock" music recorded using MIDI programming. He has served as music consultant for high-school plays and performances, often selecting and editing songs or performing original ones. He has been drummer and percussionist for high-school bands, as well as ocasional disc-jockey. He's also an avid writer, critic and reviewer. In 2018, he started uploading his music on YouTube.

He's always available to work in collaborations, splits, and compilation/remix projects, all for music's sake.
