DEATH CHEETAH embraces the darker elements of drone, chaos and subtlety and smashes them against sub-bass brutality. Bridging the carved out gaps between electro, post-punk noise and ambient soundscape, metallic mantras are created through acts of constructing deconstruction as an ever expanding sound collage hyperventilates. Accurately described as undefinable, cinematic and down right terrifying, It’s not unlikely to find audiences entranced by the elegantly evil atmosphere created during a live performance.
CITY OF DJINN is a duo that creates a sonic tapestry of dark, psychedelic, drone rock that draws from experimental music vernacular as well maqam tradition.
SO AR (formerly known as ZE BIB!) is a collaborative effort between cellist/electronic musician Shanna Sordahl and percussionist Robert Lopez. Their music grapples with the spastic intensity arising from their explorations into sound worlds developed both collectively and independently. Both are graduates of Mills College’s music MFA program, and their extreme musical interests converge with explosive force. Their music is tinged with influences ranging between noise, free improvisation, avant garde rock, and heavy drone. They cultivate psychological structures and interpretations of material grown out of improvisations, all with an emphasis on the deconstruction of composed melodic and rhythmic material.
