About the artists:
Collector is the collaborative project of Matt Blair, Jakob Heinemann, and Devin Drobka. The three musicians first came together as a trio in November 2016. Since then, they have primarily worked in expansive, developing improvisations, with a focus on exploring electroacoustic sound, dynamic extremes, and drones. Above all, the trio has always prized close listening and a sensibility for self-expression in their music. Collector released their debut record, Post Rock Lately, in August 2019.
VERSIONING is Danielle Milam, previously known as Sea Tone. VERSIONING features experimental electronics, noise, beats, and synthy goodness.
Esther-Belle Angeles is a guitar and effects based improvisation act, creating washes of ambience to harsh noise and back again.
