Shawn Greenlee is a composer and performer of experimental music in
Providence, Rhode Island. He is poised at the epicenter of a panicked music
scene and is best known for his solo electronic music as well as for
founding the frenetic rock group Landed. Greenlee has recorded for a number
of labels including Load Records, Vermiform and Hospital Productions.
Nysa represents a compendium of turbulence and singularities. The sound for
drunken states on mythic mountains. A studio reshaping of several live
performances with custom computer programs, gestural input devices, and
circuit-bent electronics. It was assembled throughout 2006 in Providence and
mixes human aktions with the performance systems: Needles(s), High, Maenads,
and Augur. Each system utilizes a physical approach for exploring the hidden
and creating the esoteric with digital audio. Hands move and draw across
circuits and codecs. Oscillating cryptographs emerge as sonic divinations,
interpreted by an ecstatic body. Interference reveals noise beneath noise.
