Tiny Vipers is best known for releases on Sub Pop, and for being one half of the group Mirrorring (with Grouper’s Liz Harris). In 2015, she released Ambience 3, a nod to Brian Eno’s landmark Ambient series. Her long-awaited third album, Laughter, will be released on May 5. NPR says, “Tiny Vipers' Laughter does away with voice and guitar almost completely, instead focusing on keyboards and synths. Her new music recalls electronic music pioneers like Florian Fricke, Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius, but filtered into the dank space of the Terminator soundtracks, or Zomes' lo-fi modal meditations. Recorded to tape, you can hear the hiss and spools unwind as wandering melodies dissipate — it's still severely intimate, just reconvened as synthetic hymnals.”
Emerging from a love of early electronics, concrete/tape music, soundtracks and early new age, Chambers creates worlds ofsound that touch on many elements and moods, from spatially motivated ambient to aspects of minimalist composition and improvisation. Chambers utilizes an array of synthesizer equipment to achieve his sounds, in addition to field sounds and occasional acoustic elements
Pink Void is the moniker of Crystal Perez. She's best known in the noise world for her part in the much-revered Blue Sabbath Black Cheer, and currently plays bass in Low Hums. Since 2011, she's created sprawling landscapes of layered guitar, samples and static as Pink Void, that are, as she describes, "Sensual nightmare soundtracks for the whole family."
