Guitarist D.Miñoza https://dminoza.wordpress.com/ is a sound artist working primarily in the areas of drone, noise, minimalism and free improvisation.
“Deep, majestic sound design combines with eerie drones and what I can only describe as esoteric melodies, forming a moody yet beautiful sonic melange.”
-Darrel Burgan (StillStream Net Radio)
dRachEmUsiK combines a plethora of nuanced techniques in order to create groovy and meditative soundscapes; giving structure to improvisation.
This style manifests itself into an organic and natural composition of a free flowing design resulting in improvisations and structured pieces ranging from ambient to glitch-groove, noise to nujazz.

ELECTRO MUSIC IS MOVING TO THE MIDWEST
2017 will be the first e-m held in Indianapolis, Indiana. August 4-6, instead of MEME (the Midwest Electro-Music Experience), The Irving Theater will host experimental musicians from the United States and all over the world.
The Irving Theater
5505 East Washington St
Indianapolis, IN 46219
August 4-6, 2017
For over a decade, people have gathered together to listen to and perform experimental electronic and electro-acoustic music, to swap gear and ideas, and to find like-minded life-long friends under the umbrella of electro-music.com. These gatherings have fostered an eclectic and diverse community of musicians and makers, improvisers and composers, amateurs and academics. The strangest thing about the electro-music community? That this might be the first time you’ve ever heard of it.
For the past six years, the annual electro-music festival has been held in Huguenot, NY. As of the last day of 2016’s electro-music festival, the upstate New York days have been uploaded to the archive.
Stay tuned for more info as things develop!

Mirrors to the Bonfire
Release Date: 08.29. 2016 onomastic records | MCSD NetLabel
Mirrors to the Bonfire, the latest collaboration from the critically acclaimed duo of onewayness (Adam Holquist/Erie, PA) and dRachEmUsiK (Charles Shriner/Indianapolis, IN), replaces the exuberance and emotional optimism of their last full-length, 2014’s Immeasurable, with emotional ambiguity and complexity, swapping comfort and joy for unsettling, but ultimately rewarding, drama and melancholy.
Mirrors to the Bonfire is a series of meditations on human feedback and the powers of interpersonal interaction. The three long tracks sculpt a polished narrative of conflict and resolution that cycles in and out of warm nostalgia and dark, uncharted territory. Dark analog drones and electroacoustic concrète clatter give way to extended melodic duo explorations for acoustic guitar & electronic wind instrument.
You definitely want to check out the MEME 2016 festival this weekend in Indianapolis! Three days of Experimental and New Music by 36 electroacoustic and electronic musicians from around the USA.
Check out the Lineup and Schedule. Press Release below.
I’ll be playing at MEME Friday night with Faux Pas Quartet and Sunday afternoon doing a dRachEmUsiK solo set.
Hope to see you this weekend!

IEMG, the local chapter of the international electro-music community. This community of Musicians was established over 10 years ago by Howard Moscovitz. Electro-Music is new music comprised of synthesizers, homemade circuits, computers, voice, found objects, signal processors, wooden flutes, ambient recordings—virtually anything that makes a sound. It crosses many genres and is created out of the intrinsic need for artistic and spiritual expression. For information on other EM festivals happening all over the planet from NY to Cairo to Kansas City and points beyond as well as more info on the electro-music community general, go to electro-music.com.
The release On December 2nd, 2015, in the USA… by Urbster1 and dRachEmUsik is comprised of four, live, unedited improvisations. The music employs elements of Dark Ambient, Glitch, Drone, Noise and Avant-Jazz.
This music was created two days after the mass shooting in San Bernardino, CA. While we didn’t specifically set out to create music based on that horrific event, the shootings and related events clearly had an influence on our creative process.
In addition to being available as a download, On December 2nd, 2015… limited edition CDs are available at live performances. Standard edition CDs available from the MCSD NetLabel site.
