Salvo Beta consists of computer noise musician Sean Wolfe and drummer Dan Smith from Chicago. Sean developed a dependency for computers by the time he was 8. The machines that enable his creation process have also failed him the most. These early failures directed him to pioneering records like Front 242's Punish your Machine! Dan's music background was different. He was influenced by loud rock and a tendency toward eroding his possessions, which makes mechanical abuse and misuse natural.
