Container (US)

Nashville’s Ren Schofield, a mind-bending multi-instrumentalist with a history of noise, drone, and tape-collage psychedelia, takes a stab at heavy beat-oriented electronics with his Container project. In 2009, after a string of harsh, leftfield releases as God Willing on his cassette label I Just Live Here, for Container he applied compositional techniques and musical approaches that are more akin to noise, offering lo-fi, crunchy textures and elemental, warbling techno. His debut album LP – one of the most celebrated electronic records of 2011 – was released on the Editions Mego sub-label Spectrum Spools. As an exercise and challenge specifically for MUTEK, Container will experiment with and incorporate modular synthesizers in his live set up for the first time.
