The Regression volumes have ended, but the name remains. The trilogy focused on using images to inspire sounds and compositions or vice versa. Specific techniques and aesthetics were formed during these experiments that I intend to explore both solo and with collaborators.

Nate Young is best known for his work in the group Wolf Eyes . Created by Young in 1998, the now-legendary noise group defined the genre. His primitive drum sequencing and unique vocal delivery gave listeners some of their most memorable music experiences. In the decade that followed, Wolf Eyes toured the world, released reams of records, collaborated with heavies, and generally enamored and influenced a generation.
A skilled workbench electrician, Young has always involved hand-built devices and reconstituted consumer electronics in his practice. In 2007, his group Demons rediscovered vintage synthesizers as a means to create electronic compositions and led a resurgence of interest in synthesizer music. Now, as a solo artist and while playing in Stare Case (his blues duo with fellow Wolf Eyes musician John Olson), Young has refined his musical approach: bass, synthesizers, organic electronics and raw unfeigned vocals. Their 2011 LP Lose Today, on De Stijl, received wide praise.
Young’s solo LP Regression Vol. 2 Stay Asleep - an unvarnished collection of instrumental works released by NNA Tapes - was released in November, 2011, followed by Regression Vol. 3 Other Days on Tokyo’s Rockatansky Records in February 2012, the final volume of this trilogy.
Regression "Blinding Confusion" was released on NNA in 2013. Featuring Chris Durham on organ and synthesizer. This release is the second collaborative effort with Durham.
