artist info:

emily beisel - 

emily beisel is a musician whose most most enriching artistic experiences are those involving extended collaborations characterized by in-depth comprehension and interpretation of musical works. she is fascinated by the communicative possibilities of joint composition and free improvisation and the potential for reaching otherwise un-explored territory. 

in addition she is greatly interested in the parallels between the ideas in contemporary music and genres that fall outside of the classical academic sphere. although the classifying terminology for these styles is imperfect some examples may be identified as mathcore, drone-metal and noise rock. she feels that mining these relationships can provide deeply current means of relating to sound both physically and intellectually as well as serving to erode problematic value hierarchies in our culture.

pppmmm - 

pppmmm is an experimental duo offering improvised blasts of blissful ear-piercing washes of harsh electronic noise, paired with tribal drum machine percussion. in its current form, pppmmm unleashes a sound that fluctuates from lysergic states of dissonance to soothing static shoegaze/dream pop.
