BLUE SAUSAGE INFANT is the work of Chester Hawkins of Washington DC.
Since 1986, BSI has produced music that combines aspects of noise,
drone, Krautrock, sample-plundering, dark ambient, and kosmische
electronics to produce a multi-layered feast for the brain. Hawkins
describes his music as “mean-spirited euphoria;” an improvised form of
psychedelia with a glaze of paranoid tension. The BSI 2011 LP
“Negative Space” has been nominated for this year’s Qwartz award
(experimental category) in Paris.
Blue Sausage Infant has collaborated in recordings and live
performances with Violet, Dave Newhouse (The Muffins), Thee
Maximalists, Insect Factory, Pilesar, Gary Rouzer (Nine Strings),
Reanimation, Changes To blind, Haunted Toilet, New Carrollton, Stolen
Government Binder Clip, Lida Husik, and others.
