Keyboardist/Soundscape artist sought by an experimental rock band.
We are an organic, experimental rock band, seeking a keyboardist/soundscape artist, who will use atmospheres, samples, soundscapes and loops to augment and bolster our music, as well as creating harsh, piercing and haunting sounds with the keyboard.
You will be working alongside me to find and contribute source material via field recordings and sampled sounds from ordinary/everyday life, manipulated by software to produce new and odd sounds to weave into, out of, and around the music.
An avant-garde/industrial background is appreciated, but not entirely necessary. A willingness to adapt and learn works best.
Among a myriad of influences, the notable ones are: Swans, Black Flag, Neurosis, Big Black, SPK, Pigface, Jarboe, Diamanda Galas, The Body Lovers/Body Haters, Killing Joke, Laibach, Black Sabbath, Savage Republic, Throbbing Gristle, Head of David, Arsenal, Scorn, Coil, Autumn Fair, Birthday Party, Faust, Godflesh, Suicide, DNA, Mars, a mess of hardcore punk, No-Wave, post-punk and metal bands, and many more.
There are elements of many sub-genres of rock music in our material, as well as many non-rock influences. Based on this, I expect to build on a naturally evolving sound.
I ask that you have no drug habits or issues, and that you can transport yourself and your equipment to and from practice with ease. We have a practice that is in a secure facility with 24/7 access. We require that you are able to pay your portion of the rent.
Interested parties can hear samples of our music at:
