Negative Reinforcement is Dei Xhrist & Craig Douglas fresh duo.

Dei Xhrist creates minimal, atmospheric vocals and effects that teeter on the edge of feedback. A founding member of Birdorgan, Xhrist explores double meanings through language, sound, and movement. 

Craig Douglas is a songwriter, producer and performer. He has toured extensively the last few years with his ambient improv duo Obliquity. He put out over 7 albums in 5 years under the moniker Omega Vague and has a number of other projects in the works that range from horror themed, dream pop, spastic rock, and ambient music.  It wasn't until the last few years he started immersing himself into the spontaneity of vocal improvisation, throwing himself in the moment. He creates drawn out layers with his voice that touch on ethereal, drone and mid-eastern influence, always embracing the vulnerability to build sonic walls and to eventually find a way to destroy them.
