Combining the alchemy of sound with chemical enrichment. Melding into the body, mind, and spirit; the albuquerque based music/noise act, Alchemical Burn, is a hybrid of electronic, analog, acoustic, musique concrete,and field recordings. With heavy voice and noise manipulations, Ab rides a laser thin line between madness and beauty. Elements of "tribal-electro" and "sonic-space" appear throughout performances as well as studio work.
Live Ab is focused on improvisational sound as well as musical structure. For approximately 4 years, of a 6 year herstory, no two shows have been the same. Angaym k. Oss, Ab's ringmaster, has performed solo and with myriad guest musicians from both the electronic and analog spheres of music.
Performing in countless bars, theatres, art galleries, warehouse parties, and on live television and radio. Angaym has had the honor to play on the same bill with such artists as Apocalypse Theater, Shadow Project, Terrorstate, DAT politics, Black Elf Speaks, Neptune, The voodoo organist, Inerex and body manipulations guru Fakir Musafar.

Angaym started in Tripping Dogs, an "industrial" metal act with Trey Xanthean in 1992. Then came Cerebus (1994), a noise/ grindcore project. Bleed (1995) was an early, solo, studio only version of Ab which was formed soon thereafter.
Around the same time (1996) Handmaidens of the Precious Blood was born. This was a full band in which any/everything goes, After the dissolving of HOTPB (96/97), Alchemical Burn was forged out of a desire to maintain an experimental and improvisational approach to music within its' performance.
It has continued to be the "journal" of sonic excavation and all its beauty and imperfections for eight years now!
