Aaron Dilloway is an experimental musician. He is an improviser and composer who works with the manipulation of 8-track tape loops in combination with voice, tape delays and various organic and electronic sound sources.
He is a founding member, guitarist and tape manipulator of the industrial noise band Wolf Eyes. They became one of the most important experimental noise bands of the genre, because of their energy and authentic experimental sound.
In 2005 Dilloway left the group to live in Kathmandu (Nepal), where he recorded real-life audio which he uses throughout his recordings.
Aaron Dilloway started his own noise record label, record shop and mail order company: Hanson Records.
On the website of his label Hanson Records you can read a few representative quotes for reviews of his CD Modern Jester (2012):
- Those that leave the green lungs you, raise the temperature to improbable degrees and hallucinate your death.– Bartolome Delmar Huerta, Afterpop (Babel Fish Translation from Spanish) link
- ‘Modern Jester’ is quite possibly the culmination of everything we’ve heard from Dilloway that’s come before it. A hyper-focused monolithic double LP that distills all past phases of inspiration into a harrowing, but strangely beautiful journey. – Fred Thomas, All Music Guide link
- From short bursts to long-form, hallucinatory epics, it’s a sprawling collection that highlights every facet of Dilloway’s considerable arsenal. One of the album’s two side-long attacks, Look Over Your Shoulder is a lurid, subtly shifting piece with disembodied vocals and a barrage of extra-terrestrial tones that slithers into your cerebral cortex atop a funeral rhythm.– Jeff Conklin, East Village Radio. link
