Via App’s ‘Sixth Stitch’ out November 11th on Break World Records

Via App is Dylan Scheer, a Queens, NY-based electronic producer and performer.
She started hosting and playing shows, as well as releasing cassettes as Via App
in Boston, and from there she moved on to New York in 2014, where she quickly
became an integral part of the city’s experimental electronic scene.

Her early live hardware sets brought her recognition for their often stark modes
of sample manipulation and collage, dynamic narrative compositions, and their
refusal to adhere to any one genre. More recently, her live sets have maintained
a similar sense of precariousness. She works synthesized sounds into polyrhythmic
infectious grooves which veer from edge to breaking point, unpredictably giving
way to either manic frenzy, or complete pause.

Her studio recordings exist, in part, as documentation of her performances and
are all recorded live.

In 2015, she released ‘7 Headed’, a heavily sample-based techno 12″ that met with
critical acclaim, landing her a spot on the top 10 electronic releases of the year in
The Wire, and an artist feature on Resident Advisor.

She has toured Europe and played esteemed festivals such as Moogfest, Sustain-
Release, Rewire, and will play Unsound Festival this October.

‘Sixth Stitch’ is set for release on Break World records on November 11, 2016.
