Illusion Of Safety · Life Garden · Voice Of Eye ‎– The Nature Of Sand - (Manifold Records-USA-1995)

Since 1983 Illusion Of Safety has been the ongoing project of Daniel Burke, working alone and with various collaborators. They have released over 20 CDs on labels such as Complacency, Die Stadt, Experimedia, Odd Size, Silent, Soleilmoon, Staalplaat, Tesco, and Waystyx, and played over three hundred concerts in Europe and North America. IOS' work has been called ambient, post-industrial, electro-acoustic, noise, sound-collage, improvisation, and power electronics, but they are unwilling to limit their work to any given style or method. The sonic character and affective substance of the music will often shift abruptly within each  recording and live performance. 
Life Garden was formed in 1989 from the ashes of Maybe Mental whose two core members were David and Su Ling Oliphant. They invited poet George Dillon to the group, but tragically he passed away by the time when they released their debut "Caught Between the Tapestry of Silence and Beauty" (1991). Subsequently, Life Garden added Peter Ragan and Bill Yanok, who eventually departed in 1995. Life Garden broke up in 1999.
 Voice Of Eye is the duo of Bonnie McNairn and Jim Wilson who began working together when Bonnie joined the avantgarde ensemble Cruor based in Houston (Texas). After Ure Thrall left Cruor, the other members continued on as the noise/industrial combo Esoterica Landscapes 7, eventually paring down to Bonnie and Jim who then changed the name to voice Of Eye. In the early 1990s, they collaborated with Ure Thrall's Terminus (2) project and recorded and performed as part of the short lived ensemble Asianova. (all the info ffrom Discogs)click me
