Myers, David Lee: Prototype Of The Veil (pulsewidth)

David Lee Myers began creating feedback music in 1989, originally under the name Arcane Device, developing unique approaches to harnessing feedback between audio devices in ways their manufactures did not intend; since 2014 he has used a set of new devices that allow intense control and beauty through vibrational interactions, as heard in this, his 18th solo album of feedback music.

Sample The Album:

Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

The eighteenth solo album of Feedback Music since 1989. Recorded live at Pulsewidth, 2019.

"David Lee Myers has long been a master of thought-provoking, uniquely designed electronic music, whether operating as his namesake or under his well-known alias Arcane Device. This new one reveals some of his best work yet, a deeply resonant foray into the world of bleep and bloop, full of more percolating ideas in a single track than some artists can forge across entire careers. This is a man who knows his instruments intimately, and carves out singular sonic showstoppers with enormous facility and imagination. Bring the BBC Radiophonic Workshop into the 21st century with a vengeance and you'll get a feel for the glorious silicon symphonies Myers hath wrought. Brilliant." -Darren Bergstein

Artist Biographies

"David Lee Myers is a sound and visual artist who has lived and worked in New York City since 1977. Pulsewidth serves as the platform for his activities in the arts, particularly sound projects, a number of which have been released under the Pulsewidth record label.

From 1987 through 1993, sound projects were developed under the name Arcane Device. With the development of new devices in 2014, it seems fitting for the moniker to be revived.

Myers work stems from an enthusiasm for electronics and the world of electrons as it relates to the realm of vibration and sound. After a fine arts education and many years in music, in 1987 Myers' accidental discovery of "Feedback Music" led to a new appreciation of the unseen forces underlying audible electronics."
