Revo Williams is DIY, Experimental, Electronica composed entirely on an iMac G5 with GarageBand and a cheap turntable in his studio/apartment in West Hollywood, California.
Creatively enabled by the iMac G5 with it's GarageBand music software, Revo Williams was officially launched in 2008 exclusively on lastfm.com. DIY in all aspects of production, William Hall a.k.a. Revo Williams, combines an endless variety of edited sound loops from GarageBand, Sonic Boom Box and sampling from a lifetime collection of vinyl, to create a percussive, throbbing electronic sound with fragmentary vocals, punk-derived riffs and tribal-like beats, often tempered with a certain ethereal melodicism such that the listener is enveloped in a challenging, sublimating wall of amorphous, cacophonous sound that you can move to. His early influences include Andy Worhol's Velvet Underground, Bowie's Ziggy Stardust/Aladdin Sane and the Ramones. In the early 80's, when a fixation on Skinny Puppy's "body music" led William to acquire a TEAC four track, a Roland Doctor Rhythm and a Roland S-10 keyboard he began experimenting with industrial sound poetry and rythm'n'noise under the name's "Single Edge Industrial" and "Big End".
