gristleism-buddha-machineThrobbing Gristle’s Chris Carter has announced that Gristleism is now available for preorder.


Featuring 13 original and uncompromising loops, GRISTLEISM delivers a mix of signature TG experimental noise, industrial drone, and classic melodies and rhythms.

GRISTLEISM was born from a collaboration between Industrial Records, Throbbing Gristle and Christiaan Virant (the creator of the original FM3 Buddha Machines) and is packaged in a “Chinese paper-cut” wrapping, featuring a repeating TG logo pattern, foil embossing and UV ink.

Gristleism retails for $28.

Bastard offspring of ambient loop player the Buddha Machine, GRISTLEISM is part industrial sound machine, part noise instrument.

Available in three colors — black, chrome and red — the palm-sized unit (size: w67mm x h69mm x d35mm) features a built-in speaker, volume control, pitch-shift control and loop selector switch.

Note: GRISTLEISM does not feature an audio output socket or a DC power input socket.

GRISTLEISM features more loops and almost twice the frequency range of the Buddha Machine.

GRISTLEISM is powered by two AA batteries and is the world’s first and only portable TG aural exciter!
