Shimmer Crush allows dark-matter to interact with the tiniest dust and drone particles. Emotive and translucent, solemn and surreal......minute glitch tentacles sway back and forth in an enigmatic haze.' (igloo magazine) Her songs form a narrative as a soundtrack to life and experiences, featuring simple, raw, experimental electronic compositions that are accented by haunting vocalizations and spoken word to create thoughtful sound. Described by i die: you die as music that incorporates 'cicada-like clicks trickling through soupy pads' with 'discordant breaks and pinched waveforms', influences of IDM, minimal techno, soundtracks, industrial, post rock, ambient and experimental electronics are clearly reflected throughout. 'Offering immediate beauty with an underlying current of danger', (a closer listen), there is a dreamy quality to her sound that will take you on a journey meant to resonate and inspire. https://shimmercrush.wordpress.com/ video: https://vimeo.com/117016204 music: http://crimeleague.bandcamp.com/album/these-four-walls .. 10:00 . ortiz creates dark, dub-inflected soundscapes that evoke the chaotic beauty of urban decay. Crumbling static gives way to ghostly vocals, distant melodies and rumbling low-end, taking the listener on a journey through the sonic ruins of a dystopian world. https://ortiz.bandcamp.com/ https://soundcloud.com/ortiz - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - COMiNG SOON: THE PiNG: Wednesday October 10th 2018 • PiNG:10:10:18 featuring The Body In Question + A Moment Of Release + Tacet Tacet Tacet feat.
