Experimentation and curiosity, the use of hands as the main tool that transforms anxiety into sound, a force that pushes back, the need to struggle: "Drone and Doom / devastated and sad, pushing its own weight, its strength, the idea of ​​duality between machine control and emotional exploration of its own sounds.

The hands, in artistic fields today, have very little intervention since the role of producer is passed on from one individual to another. The idea of "creating" through the body is a technique almost nonexistent as it constitutes a verbal system, a language structure that supports "a kind of thinking", "a kind of knowledge" when "doing" becomes secondary, which for Tristan Shone/Author and Punisher happens in an opposite manner.  The ¨doing¨ converts into a physical action through the use of the hands, in a permanent state of imminence, the hands, the precise space between the desire and the artistic, harmony/energy, strength/roughness, tenderness/desire and are reflected through work-chapped hands resisting through inward screams, screams not released but constrained. "No one is listening to nothing, when there's everything happening inside of this." Force the body into punishment, squeeze the voice, and conserve the sound in an intermediate state. Search for a state of vertigo and an intoxication that translates existence. "Rolling out for you to use." Seduce through the cry that is released from the weight of his condition, free from the pains of individualization, as Jean Brun would say. The opposite "artistic", a counter-poetic that situates itself better between the interstices of practices, between the mouth and the cry, between sculpture and technology, between fingers cracked by the friction of metal, between the primary processes of a society of industrial production when lathes were used to produce precision for a living for those who belonged to a labor force of groups suffering with illusions of a future: the anti-poetic takes those primary processes and makes them his own. "Art comes from a place that is not known, that happens when you do not know it – That which is produced from a distant concern, yet, at the same time, as close as extinction can be, the devastation to groups who have been the first to receive violence or be marginalized in practice, knowledge, interventions or conflict. Art that makes a journey encoding the experience of effort and enhancing the sensitive: Author and Punisher / Women and Children

Author & Punisher is an industrial doom and drone metal, one man band utilizing primarily custom fabricated machines/controllers and speakers.  He has performed and shown these machines in festivals and exhibitions in the United States and abroad extensively, releasing his third album, yet first sculpture/art based album entitled “Drone Machines” in 2010 on Heart & Crossbone Recordsout of Tel-Aviv.  His new record, focused primarily on the newer Dub Machines, entitled “Ursus Americanus”, was just released April 24th, 2012 on Seventh Rule Recordings. Drone/Dub Machines are custom made machines fabricated from raw materials and utilizing open source circuitry. The devices draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation, robotics and mechanical tools and devices, focusing on the eroticism of interaction with machine.  The machines require significant force from the performer, aligning he or she with the plodding drone and doom influenced sounds that are created.Alongside fabricating machines and composing sound for performance,  Tristan works at the National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research (http://ncmir.ucsd.edu) as a mechanical engineer and the Center for Research and Computing in the Arts (http://crca.ucsd.edu) at the University of California, San Diego as a researcher in sound interface design.

La experimentación y la curiosidad, el uso de las manos como herramienta principal que transforma la ansiedad en sonido, que empuja una fuerza en su contra, la necesidad de seguir el forsejeo “Drone and Doom/devastado y triste”, empujar su peso, su fuerza, la idea de tener esa dualidad entre el control de la maquina y la exploración emocional de sonidos propios.

 Las manos en ámbitos artísticos en el presente tienen muy poca intervención, ya que la producción es traslada a otro. La idea de “crear” a través de cuerpo, del oficio son casi inexistentes, porque constituye un sistema verbal, una estructura de lenguaje que soporte “un tipo de pensamiento”, “un tipo de conocimiento”, entonces el “hacer” se vuelve algo secundario lo cual para Tristan Shone  sucede de manera contraria. El “hacer” se convierte en una acción física a través de el uso de las manos,  en un estado permanente de inminencia, las manos, justo el espacio entre el deseo y lo artístico, tienen armonía/energía, fuerza/rudeza, delicadeza/deseo. Manos agrietadas del trabajo que resisten  el grito hacia adentro, el que no puede salir porque se contrae. “No one is listening to nothing, when there´s everything happening inside of this” forzar el cuerpo al castigo, apretarle la voz, conservar el sonido en un estado intermedio.  Búsqueda del vértigo y embriaguez que traduzcan la existencia,  “Rolling out for you to use”, seducir a través del grito que se libere del peso de su condición, librarse de los dolores de la individualización diría Jean Brun. Lo contra “artistico”, una contra-poética que se sitúa mejor entre los intersticios de las prácticas, entre la boca y el grito, entre la escultura y la tecnología, entre los dedos agrietados por la fricción del metal, entre los procesos primarios de una sociedad de la producción industrial cuando se usaban los tornos para producir presición, para ganarse la vida, que pertenecían a una fuerza de trabajo a grupos vulnerados con ilusiones de un futuro: lo contra-poético tomar esos procesos primarios y hacerlos suyos “El arte por venir de un lugar que no se conoce, que acontece cuando usted no lo sabe”, el que se produce a partir de una preocupación lejana pero a la vez tan cercana como puede ser la extinción, la devastación en grupos vulnerados quiénes han sido los primeros en recibir violencia o ser marginados en prácticas, saberes, intervenciones o conflictos. El arte que hace un recorrido codificando la experiencia de un esfuerzo y exalta lo sensible: Author and Punisher/ Women and Children
