    Step into Tiger Village’s laboratory bunker located somewhere near Cleveland and catch a glimpse of the scientist at work. Flanked on all sides by analog synths, MIDI controllers, tape decks, and drum machines, with patch cables splayed out from chassis to chassis like tangled octopi, Tim Thornton pieces together his intricate electronic compositions from the choir of squelching voices bursting from his mechanical arsenal. After jumpstarting his own cassette imprint called Suite 309 this year, Thornton treads deeper into the experimental underground with Tiger Village V, the first volume of his ambitious tape series to be released by an outside label. As one of the legion of tinkerers that define Ohio’s fertile experimental DIY culture, Thornton orbits the noise scene along a path overlapped with Hausu Mountain affiliates like Moth Cock, Witchbeam, and Jeremy Bible, co-defining an independent strain of tonal exploration and mind-warping disfiguration of form. While Thornton’s peers plunge headfirst into an abyss of static-soaked textures and improv abstraction, his own practice presents a nuanced approach to synth arrangement that proves, over the course of Tiger Village V’s forty-three overstuffed minutes, to be just as meticulous as it is mangled.
