Aric Improta With James "Munky" Shaffer & Ra Diaz

Fever 333’s Aric Improta Releases New Noise Track “Zhurmë” With Korn & Suicidal Tendencies Members


Drummer Aric Improta (Fever 333, Night Verses) has launched an exploratory noise project with the below track “Zhurmë“. It finds him and some special guests creating music with the aid of various everyday items, including skateboard wheels, scissors, rolls of tape and more. Korn guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer and Suicidal Tendencies bassist Ra Diaz are the special guests in question and join him on this newly released cut.

Improta commented of the venture to Kerrang!:

“As a film major, I’ve been very interested in the work of foley artists and their creative contributions to enhance the viewers experience. During quarantine, I decided to start this art project with my film collaborator Kevin Garcia, where we recorded a ton of found sounds then tried to compose a song around the noises we captured.”

Speaking of his aforementioned guests, Improta offered:

“[Munky] came out to the studio and improvised for three hours straight. He even brought a cello to experiment with. After everything was tracked, I went through all of the recordings, grabbed my favorite parts and built the middle and end around his work.

Both Munky and Ra have undeniably unique approaches to their instruments and I wanted to make sure I captured that, while still putting together something that felt different than their previous work. At times, I also made sure to change my initial work and compose around supporting their ideas. That way I would have also have to think differently.”
