scrap.edx industrial consumer products are deployed via hands productions based in germany and designed in connecticut in the united states by its creator joshua colella.

scrap.edx is a concept and personal ideology that i use to create my distinct style of aggressive electronic music. i use scrap.edx to describe how i design the music logistically and present the aesthetic of the audio to consumers. scrap.edx, from my point of view, is a set of guidelines, a point of focus and an approach to creation and composition (in this case, music). it is my intention that scrap.edx is to be viewed as an engineered industrial product, a complex, high-performance technology that is tangible audibly. aesthetically, scrap.edx represents (and is a reaction to) my fascination with the human interaction with and creation of technology (notably military technology; be it science fact or fiction) and the use of technology to shape a collective existence.”
