MOPCUT is a medium-length noise-style that covers the head and ears with a vertical bang and a horizontal wave. It's a popular style for all ages, genders and generations.The soundscape should be trimmed evenly all around the circumference so that the noise at the front reaches the inner eye while the waves on the sides cover (or almost fully cover) the ears. The beats at the back maintain the same length as the samples at the front and sides. Once the overall sound is achieved, trimming is used to achieve minimalism or maximalism, depending. Improvisation, noise and electronic beats work well as backgrounds for the MOPCUT. Electronic appliances and devices may be used to give the MOPCUT a bit more volume, but effects may lead to standing up instead of hanging low. MOPCUT is Lukas König, Audrey Chen, and Julien Desprez.

Cyclone Trio is a head caving heavy jazz power unit of drums and saxophones, formed by Tony Irving (non-linear/free improvising drummer who founded the bands Ascension and Descension in the 90s) with drummer Tim Green and saxophonist Massimo Magee in Brisbane, Australia in 2013. The trio’s music focuses on intensity, dexterity, power and expression. Irving has recorded and played with London improvising legends Paul Dunmall, Alan Wilkinson, the late Lol Coxhill and Pat Thomas, as well as Sonic Youth guitarists Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo. The duo of Irving and Magee have released albums on labels Astral Spirits (The Fog, 2018), and 577 Records (Vitriol and the Third Oraculum, 2020).
