Helm (London-based producer Luke Younger) was member of the
prolific noise-making duo
Birds Of Delay with Steven Warwick (aka Heatsick).
Helm launched his solo career with limited-edition self-released recordings,
some of which surfaced on the
mini-albums Impasse (Low Point, 2008), such as the
15-minute noise/drone symphony Fields.
After the drones & spoken-word suites of To An End (Alter, 2010),
Helm reached his mature stage with two albums of
field recordings and dark ambient music:
Cryptography (Kye, 2011)
Impossible Symmetry (Pan, 2012).
Helm then managed to fuse the dynamic irregular character of found sound
and the static regular character of loops and drones to craft the
harrowing sci-fi industrial soundscapes of the
Silencer (2013), containing the
grotesque and orgiastic Silencer,
and The Hollow Organ (2014), whose
Spiteful Jester hark back to the sonic miasmas of early
The subdued The Hollow Organ belongs to a different genre,
an apparently mono-dimensional, static and relatively uneventful drone
that is actually made of a multitude of colliding sonic events.
