Author & Punisher

Tristan Shone, the creator and sole artist behind Author & Punisher, who was named “one of the most prolific acts in aggressive music” by Noisey, left a career as a mechanical engineer to focus on art and sculpture, pursuing his MFA. In the metal and machine shops of University of California, Shone forged a relationship with design, sound and fabrication that ultimately yielded Author & Punisher‘s first music and mapped the journey away from traditional instrumentation towards custom made, precision machinery. Shone used his technical knowledge, along with his artistic background to create what Wired Magazine has hailed as his own “special brand of doom metal.” All aspects of the Author & Punisher sound begin with physical movement, limbs struggling in unison to coordinate a wall of electronic rhythm and oscillation, ultimately conditioned by an organic and loose quality absent of sequencing and plastic perfection. Author & Punisher performances are a real amalgamation between man and mechanisms. They are direct, physical, heavy experiences that have amassed praise and intrigue from a wide array of audiences.
