Spookstina is the empathic drone, found sound, meditative loops project from Christina Coocoo of Raleigh, NC.
Artistically, I have really loved Christina's music (aka Spookstina). It's hard to describe but it has a combination of noise, experimental electronics, found sound with beautiful human voice and cassette samples of many different kinds of sounds; all of which she plays «through» the pickups of her bass guitar. There are elements of ritual and even a kind of dark shamanism in it, too. I lightly refer to it as «ambient Music for Demons». — Rick Walker
Mount Rainier is the solo project of D.C. musician Matt Cohen, who plays in the drone duo Literals. Inspired by the latter-day experimentalism of John Fahey and the simple, dusty melodies of Bruce Langhorne, Cohen utilizes delicate, western-tinged guitar melodies and field recordings to create dense soundscapes and cinematic sound collages.
