The esoteric noise duo known as HEXA is the sonic union of XIU XIU's focal point JAMIE STEWART and sonic provocateur LAWRENCE ENGLISH. Legendary noise artist MERZBOW needs no introduction, given his prolific output and notorious experiments within the realm of human endurance and audible extremes. While Merzbow has remained a solemn figure within the canon of noise, and he is no stranger to the members of HEXA. Jamie Stewart and Merzbow worked together as a duet on a collaborative Merzxiu LP in 2015. A partnership of these three artists was born out of the collective goal of framing their work against particular sonic and visual architectures. The result of this collision turned into a full length album, aptly titled Achromatic. Focus laid on the severe reverberation of relative noises, brandishing extreme frequencies familiar only to Merzbow and coupled by HEXA’s brutalist pulsation. A true snapshot afterthought from the decay of the modern age.
