“nolite te bastardes carborundorum” is a mesmerizing collection of improvised drones, emanating from acoustic instruments and processed though electronic treatments.

Consisting of Jennifer Slezak (mandolin and violin), Jen Powers (hammer dulcimer) and Stephanie Dean (accordion), Autophonia improvised these five pieces over the course of two sessions at engineer Keith Hanlon’s home studio. Each member of Autophonia controlled the processing of their instrument: this is a document of a live performance, not a studio creation.
