The name FâLX çèrêbRi was chosen for the new music and art project by Graf Haufen early in 1983, as he felt it was a complete departure from his previous minimal synth endeavours.

The name suited the project as it describes the borderline between the brain hemispheres. On one side the rational and analytical part of the brain, on the other the intuitive and creative part.

The music of FâLX çèrêbRi was never meant to be consistent. Errors were embraced. Confusion was intended. Hence also the strange way of spelling. The project always remained open for all sorts of experimentation – ranging from noise to ritualistic drone ambience, from cut up collage work to hardcore electronics, from conceptual static surface noise to rhythmic evocations of the demon beasts. Always somewhere in the grey areas between conceptual work and – in its own strange way – regular "song" structure.

The first release was unleashed in June 1983 on a limited edition promo cassette called «Pyogenic Organism», that came packaged with a real human blood sample and covered in sheep's brains. The promo opened the doors for FâLX çèrêbRi, as its tracks appeared on several cassette compilations in 1983 and 1984. Newer, exclusive tracks appeared furthermore on labels such as Schrei Records, Gut Level Music, Illuminated 666, Fraction Studio, Broken Flag, ZSF Product, Al Khemi, Selbstmord Organisación, Requiem Productions, Cthulhu Records, Illusion Production, Zamizdat Trade Journal, Necronomicon, Déviation Culturelle, Insane Music, Alien Artists, Korm Plastics, Bog-Art, Club Moral, Les Ballets Méchaniques and Dill Prod.

A year later in June 1984 the first and up to now only album of FâLX çèrêbRi was released simultaneously on 7 labels: «Rite 64», a C60 cassette, was published on Graf Haufen Tapes in Germany, Korm Plastics in Holland, Gut Level Music in the USA, Fraction Studio in France, Requiem Productions in Norway, Servile Ghost in Australia, Calypso Now in Switzerland and Auxilio De Cientos in Spain in a print run of 500 copies. A remastered CDr with bonus live cuts was released by Korm Plastics in 1999.

The following contributions to cassette and vinyl compilations saw a shift in musical directions – on one hand towards drone ambient or simply voice based melancholic echo-loop compositions, on the other hand very conceptual outer edge works like surface scannings with a variety of microphones or field recordings to replace composed music.

FâLX çèrêbRi performed a couple of ritualistic live shows in 1985 in Berlin, Budapest and Bordeaux, worked on soundscapes for installations and exhibitions, as well as conceptual sound installations and photo performances for international art exhibitions.

A second album was planned in 1985 but never fully realized apart from a rough mix that didn't work properly, partially due to technical factors, but also because of the variety of compositions and conceptual works.

Instead Graf Haufen published a limited edition 7" EP on this new imprint Artcore Editions with scannings and a rather rhythmic «Nature Is Noise Enough» field recording. FâLX çèrêbRi only recorded seldomly after that – a few tracks appeared on compilations and some long, static drone compositions remain unpublished and were shelved away.

Almost 7 years in making, finally this milestone of pioneering & legendary german noise outfit is released - more than 25 years after the last recorded FâLX çèrêbRi track, compiles several contributions to compilations, as well as outtakes, erratic experiments, live cuts and unreleased tracks. -Label Description
