kqwiet is the brainchild of Cory J Bury. He began the experimental noise project in 1999 as a side project of his main musical project, HOTH(e). As kqwiet, Bury has released over 20 collections of noise music, and it has evolved from a side project to his primary musical obsession. Bury began his own CD-R label, SeaBE Productions, to distribute his music as both kqwiet and HOTH(e). In addition to Death By Salt IV, kqwiet has been featured on a number of international compilations of noise music. Music from kqwiet, HOTH(e) and Bury's other musical endeavors can be found at hedphonz.blogspot.com.
