Muslim Gauze

Bryn Jones, a prolific British ethnic electronica and experimental musician, was influenced by conflicts in the Muslim world with an emphasis on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The name Muslimgauze is a play on the word muslin (a type of gauze) combined with Muslim, referring to Bryn Jones' preoccupation with conflicts throughout the Muslim world.

This Manchester-based group started in the "post-industrial" eighties with the first project being E.g Oblique Graph, a cassette released in 1982. They evolved into Muslimgauze as a response to Israel's invasion of Lebanon.

With dozens of albums released under the Muslimgauze name, Jones was remarkably prolific, issued mostly in limited editions on small record labels. Nonetheless, as critic John Bushwrites, "Jones' blend of found-sound Middle Eastern atmospheres with heavily phased drones and colliding rhythm programs were among the most startling and unique in the noise underground."
