Gregg Kowalsky resides in Oakland, California where he completed a Master of Fine Arts degree in Electronic Music and Recording Media at Mills College. Kowalsky’s compositions range from drone and noise pieces to meditative psychedelia. After his debut album, Through the Cardial Window (Kranky), Gregg started working with cassette tapes, sine oscillators, mixer feedback, contact mics, etcâ€. His recent series of Tape Chants explores the acoustics where the performances occur by setting up cassette players around the space, using only the cassette players’ speakers for amplification. Throughout the piece, Gregg moves around the space adjusting the amplitude of the players as a live mix. The album Tape Chants was released in 2009 on the Kranky label. Kowalsky has had the opportunity to perform throughout Europe and the United States; participating in festivals such as WDR’s SoundArt-Köln Festival, Mexico City’s Aural Festival, Sonar Festival, ERTZ Festival and the Ideal Festival among others. His recordings have released on Kranky, Rootstrata, Arbor and Important Records. He has composed for dance, sound installations, film and acoustic ensembles. Gregg is currently working on several projects that will see the light of day in 2011. Giuseppe Ielasi’ new label Senufo released the LP Battery Townsley, which is a live performance of Tape Chants inside the Battery Townsley military bunker in Marin, California. Date Palms is the collaboration between Gregg and Marielle Jakobsons. Their debut LP released on Rootstrata in 2010 and their follow up LP will release on Mexican Summer on August 16th. « hide
