Jack Dangers has been recording, performing, and releasing music for nearly three decades in Meat Beat Manifesto, Tino Corp, and Perennial Divide. Dangers' resume as a producer and remixer includes David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Coil, Merzbow, Twilight Circus, Public Enemy, Cranes, David Byrne and many, many more. Apart from the noise, beat, and dub-driven Meat Beat Manifesto, Dangers has released numerous solo recordings probing the depths of sound of analog synths and tape manipulation on labels such as Important Records, Shadow Records, Bella Union, Brainwashed, and his own Tapelab and Flexidisc imprints. Bathyscaphe Trieste is more in line with his critically-acclaimed releases such as the Forbidden Planet Explored, Music for Planetarium, and Electronic Music from Tapelab. In 1960, a two-person bathyscaphe ("deep boat") named Trieste reached a record maximum depth in the deepest known part of the Earth's oceans, the Challenger Deep, in the Mariana Trench near Guam. The five hour descent was made possible by the earth's gravitational pull on nine tons of lead shot, while the three hour ascent was aided by a balloon filled with gasoline. Only James Cameron has returned to the Challenger Deep, and is allegedly in production of a film of the journey. Dangers' composition honoring this journey is the product of years of work, featuring super slowed-down tape manipulations of analog synthesizers (often 30x as slow), bounced from machine to machine to achieve the appropriate soundtrack for a vessel on an exploratory journey into uncharted depths under massive amounts of physical pressure. Jack's intention was to create music from a mysterious world which mixed at the bottom of the Mariana Trench at the Challenger Deep Bedroom Quilt Studio. The disc comes with CD-ROM content of 35 minutes of video footage edited and set to music by Jack Dangers.
