SUB002 Subterrestrial - "H-21"

Subterrestrial's "H-21" is inspired by early 20th century exotic dancer Mata Hari, who was executed for treason in France during World War I after being accused of spying for Germany. Subterrestrial uses harsh, 8-bit noise and heavily aliased exotic rhythms to explore her often violent life and tragic death. It is believed that she was wrongly accused of her crime and made a scapegoat. H-21 was her alleged codename.

Subterrestrial's music appears in nature video

Recently discovered on YouTube, nature videographer Seahue captures an assassin bug nymph while filming leafhoppers and sets the video to the title track from "The Goddess of Atvatabar." Check it out.

NEWS: Subterrestrial's Bandcamp site will be shutting down soon

In an email this morning, the staff of Bandcamp.com announced that due to “a few outliers giving away hundreds of thousands of free downloads,” they were going to have to start limiting free downloads (unless you actually sell your own music, which I don't.) While new accounts are limited to 200, existing accounts such as Subterrestrial's are limited to 500. Bad news for the many artists who generously share their music for free with the general public. The good news for Subterrestrial is that our Bandcamp page is basically redundant anyway. Releases are always free for download from this page (thank you archive.org) and if you really want other formats, such as OGG there is always our jamendo.com site. Bandcamp was really only useful if you absolutely had to have it in FLAC, AAC or whatever (and if you really want our releases in those formats, all you have to do is email me and ask.) We did start to get a decent amount of traffic to that site, which I'm hoping I can redirect. If you know anybody who uses our Bandcamp site, please direct them towards http://subterrestrial.blogspot.com. Thank you!
