I will be performing a set of heavy analog synth electronics as well as presenting the first-ever screening of my “Basement” video art series on October 15th in Portland, OR.

A digital compilation of early Deathpile material (including one previously unreleased track) is now available on bandcamp.

Also check out the recent book “Fight Your Own War” which features an extended interview with me on the history of Deathpile. Available here on Amazon.

In other news you can see a video edit of my one and only 2016 live performance here on my vimeo page.

Next Saturday I will be doing a live analog synth set featuring a performance art piece by my good friend Peggy Pfenninger. I’m psyched to play with my old Hollow Earth buddy Michael / Blood Box for the first time and of course Control. If you’re in the PDX region try and check it out.


The Listen And Die! 6xLP Box set is out now (featuring DEATHPILE and some of the very best of the 90’s power electronics / noise scene).

Here’s my latest heavy analog synth release and it’s a free download.

This is an alternate soundtrack to my video art piece “Composite Video” that I performed live in Eugene, OR this past Saturday.



I am playing my first West Coast show later this month. See you in the pit?

For the past couple of months I’ve been working on soundtrack music for a video art piece by my friend and NYC visual artist Pieter Schoolwerth. Other contributors are Nate Young (WOLF EYES) and Soren Roi (RØSENKØPF). The video will be on view at Miguel Abreu gallery starting this Sunday night. If you are in the New York region I highly recommend you check it out in person.

Details can be found on the gallery website:

Last Thursday I attended an excellent house show featuring Hive Mind, Redrot, Shredded Nerve, Scant, Pleasure Island and Ventriloquist. Unfortunately lighting / space problems and available memory didn’t allow me to shoot all the bands but here’s what I got…

I’m getting there. I have added about, Deathpile, design and links pages (click on the buttons on the top of this page).

If you have any requests or suggestions for stuff to include on this page just send me an email.

Thanks. -Jonathan

I am in the process of moving all relevant info from the old malsonus website over to this new location.

In the meantime don’t forget there’s lots of my work to stream or download cheap over at

And of course DEATHPILE’s “G.R.” vinyl is still available for sale over at Tesco.

If you have any questions feel free to email me here.
