VENTA PROTESIX hates music. He's the foremost representative of the global scene of laptop stochasticism, a micro-terrorist genre born on the deepest reaches of shoutboxes, where mysterious Japanese schoolgirls download sick pornography from the internet, love solitude, chemical drug abuse, virtual sex play, and reject the warmth of analog sound. Among his peculiar influences are 山内大輔 Daisuke Yamanouchi's ero-guro movies, AV idols, hentai and the concept of sonic virology as an ontological category of being. Sounds like: Masonna trapped in a pink laptop along with Sachiko M and a 56k modem that survived the 90s. New electronic noise for a generation of romantic shut-ins." He has released music on Lips Infection, RDC, Floppy Kick, Anarcho Freaks Production, Monstres Par Exces, Ikebukuro Dada, Loli&Puke Inc., A Dear Girl Called Wendy, 16 Shots Per Second Records, Placenta Recordings, Setola Di Maiale, Metzger Therapie, and Stockroom Records.
