Ice • Meinschaft


(Knoxville, TN)
ICE (Knoxville, Tennessee native) is live electronic production (a one woman “band”) – composing samples in real time, manipulating her vocals through effects, and weaving in cassette tape ambiance with the addition of idiosyncratic projected 3D visuals. She manages to effectively synthesize a startling and unlikely combination of styles into an underwater sonic rodeo that is uniquely her own (think The Prodigy meets Enigma meets Dock Boggs).
“As a monument of St Louis electronic music, ICE’s influence is incomparable. A never-ending variety of uniquely eclectic performances render every show attended a life-changing experience. Visual stimulation, aural ecstasy, erratic prose and apocalyptic intentions fuse together into an amalgam of truth and bite. ICE is a legend, and we are honored to witness the force.” -Nebuloso
“[ICE] has built a varied sound that started with dark American folk and morphed into fierce dance music. Not that those genres go hand-in-hand, but [ICE] has managed to carve out songs that pander to no one but still feel accessible as a whole.” -Joseph Hess, Riverfront Times


MEINSCHAFT (terra incognita/parts unknown) rides the ship of indifferent taste through the stagnant and troubled waters of Western civilization. With the winds of materialistic hedonism blowing ever faster through their sails, they generate a perpetual vortex of ritual energy and concentrated spectacle; hurtling humanity closer and closer towards the crushing singularity of PROGRESS.

Meinschaft’s output has been compared to an unusual variety of artists including Coil, Laibach, The KLF, Suicide, Dead Can Dance, Negativland, The Legendary Pink Dots, Scott Walker, The Residents, Godly & Creme, Death In June, and Insane Clown Posse.

“Meinschaft is like a clown leading a circus of pain, shoveling toxic detritus into piles then slithering away and laughing from the sidelines at a game it refuses to play.” -Chattanooga Pulse

“Meinschaft resists compartmentalizing labels… The experience is energizing and mystically untouchable. But, [they’re debut release] ‘To the Victim Belong the Spoils’ is real, tangible and ready to offer all the hidden sonic wonders within.” -Lost in a Sea of Sound
