About the artists:
V.Vecker (aka Keith Wecker, b. 1983) is a composer and multi-instrumentalist from Vancouver,BC,Canada. He has been a member of the Vancouver experimental scene since 2006 and is the founder of the Emergency Room. V.Veckers current output of music is based around saxophone loops and synthesizers, with a distinct attempt to bend and manipulate the sounds being produced. Leading with an emphasis on free jazz and improvisation counterbalanced with his interest in formal composition methods and electronic musics lead to a cross section of genres resulting in music familiar yet strange. V.Vecker has participated (solo and with ensemble) in New Forms Festival, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Living Things Festival, and has shared the stage with Wolf Eyes, Hauschka, Jessica Moss, Nadja, Sun Araw, Thundercat, Zs, Anthony Braxton and Glenn Branca.
Some people equate Envenomist with science fiction film scores and others envision solitary nocturnal travels through bleak urban settings, but a fundamental strength of Envenomist is that these illusory backdrops remain open to interpretation.
VERSIONING is Danielle Milam, previously known as Sea Tone. VERSIONING can be described as experimental electronic that flirts between ambient and noise soundscapes.
