Aarktica was conceived in the winter of 1998 with Jon DeRosa's permanent loss of hearing in one ear as a distraction from his other musical interests.

One of audio distortions, aural hallucinations and a reliance on painkillers.

The ensemble created drones and textures from the timbres of instruments, not soley from reverb units and delay pedals. Members included Aaron Spectre, Chris Carrico, Oliver Chapoy (Saxon Shore), James Duncan (of Le Systeme Records), Mike Pride and Seth Misterka (of Dynasty). « hide
