I'm fascinated by their sound design and have tried figuring out whatever I could about their process.
In the one video interview I could find, they said this:
"Yeah we've got two Akai sequencing samplers running very barebones parts of what we're doing that's getting processed with a bunch of analogue outboard and then all kind of fed back on itself through a couple of mixers. So I guess it's very much akin to our studio process which is based more upon creating processes in which we're feeding skeletal sounds through and the process itself is what's imparting any kind of interest because we're always starting with sine waves and noise and that's where the music happens. So kind of creating the conditions for the music to come alive."
And this from another obscure interview.
"We wrote the entire album in the Multiverse Studio. The signal chain we used was based on using Logic 8 as a playback device for the noise and sine waves and sending it through a series of valve compressors and EQs, various transistor based gear and series of microphones set up in the control room and on amplifiers set up in other isolated rooms. We wanted to create situations where the music came alive from its own side by finding the points within signal chains where distortion begins to form before it overpowers. If you listened to our source material it would sound pathetic, everything interesting happens in the relationship between different elements in the chain."
Does anyone have any experience with anything like this? Getting good results from it? Maybe suggestions of routing to create these types of chains? Thanks.
