The musical partnership of Osman Arabi and Hadi Saleh (a.k.a. Heathen) has a subterranean origin – the pair began jamming in the basement of a store. Since December 2009, the duo has gone by the name of Court-Circuit, producing experimental sounds with an appropriately dark soundscape. Using snatches of speech, television static, recorded sounds, broken radios, electronics, guitars and didgeridoos, Court-Circuit conjure an ambient cacophony, a distinctive brand of postmodern noir.
