Diffusion of Useful Noise

Digital Download Only

Keith Hillebrandt, sculptor of dissidence from our Poke In The Ear audio source collections and NIN, brings us this 'designers series' sound sample library of musical and rhythmic cacophony.

Keith Hillebrandt is a sound manipulator and music designer from San Francisco who then wandered to New Orleans to work with Trent Reznor. After Keith waded out of New Orleans, rumor has it, he's in Southern California or off-shore somewhere. For years, Keith has worked within the music software business, including some of the earliest digital audio companies such as WaveFrame and Opcode, giving him access to the latest (at that time) in sound manipulation tools. He's worked with/for various artists ranging from Stevie Wonder to Consolidated to David Bowie. He has manipulated sound in numerous musical outfits including Nine Inch Nails, Blast Conservatory, Cleopatra System and Full Court Press. Keith has also worked in Naut Humon's Sound Traffic Control. From Keyboard Magazine 2/2000: Keith Hillebrandt came to Trent's attention through his connection with Charlie Clouser, and a sample library that he (Keith) produced. "When I finished finished the Diffusion of Useful Noise CD-ROM," Keith explains, "I sent Charlie a copy. He liked it a lot and then played it for Trent, who freaked and said, "We've got to hire this guy to design sounds for the new album (The Fragile)."

1997: Keith produced version #4 on the re-mix of David Bowie's hit song "I'm Afraid of Americans."

Oct.1996: Diffiusion of Useful Noise is given a FIVE STAR REVIEW in Keyboard Magazine.
