Insect Ark je solo projekt basistke Dane Schechter iz Brooklyna, z rekrutacijo Taurusove bobnarke Ashley pa je letos prerasel v duo. Dana se poleg angažmaja v M. Girovih Angels Of Light (Swans) in lastni rokovski zasedbi Bee And Flower z vsem bitjem posveča okornim in eksperimentalnim tonom, ki jih je junija zbrala na odobrenem prvencu “velike (pol)nočne glasbe” Portal/Well.

Pravi doom za pogum! 

(avantgardni, eksperime(n)talni doom, drone – Brooklyn, NY, ZDA)

Insect Ark started as a the one-woman solo project of bassist/multi-instrumentalist Dana Schechter. Formed in late 2011, Insect Ark has been building a following in the experimental/doom/drone scene in both their hometown of NYC and internationally.

In Jan 2015, San Francisco-based drummer Ashley Spungin (Taurus) joined on drums and synthesizers. Schechter will perform solo when Spungin is on the west coast.

Creating a personal soundtrack to the human psyche’s underbelly, Insect Ark weaves a brooding, textural landscape, a starless night spiked with light and flash. The music braids together delay-drenched lapsteel, drums, distorted bass & synths to create a sonic mural both uncomfortably intimate and icy cold.

Schechter has a history working with other projects, notably as bassist in M. Gira’s Angels of Light (Swans) and her own band Bee and Flower. Spungin is known for her work with Portland based bands Taurus and Purple Rhinestone Eagle. Schechter is also an animator and video artist working in the film business by trade.

Insect Ark’s first full-length album, “Portal/Well” will be released will be on CD with Autumnsongs Records, June 2015.
Previous releases include the 10” Vinyl EP “Long Arms” (2013, Geweih Ritual Documents) and the 7” Vinyl “Collapsar” (2012, Lancashire and Somerset Records).

On these first three releases, Schechter played and recorded all the instruments in her Brooklyn studio.

The new duo incarnation of Insect Ark recorded their first single together, “Windless”, released as a limited edition lathe cut 7″ for Utech Records and will be touring in the USA + Europe in 2015 in support of Portal/Well.



Yood. Formed in 2005, reformed in 2012. Sludge at first, experimental later.
