Listen to Our Songs! A blog where we post free downloads of our music along with other information about us.
Our product is noise, and a lot of different kinds of noise. We have a wide range of sounds and we take pride in having a variety as well as quality songs.
We are passionate about what we do, but don’t take ourselves too seriously. We enjoy experimenting with new sounds and taking risks, even if it means failure from time-to-time. We’re independent artists without the backing of a major label or a huge marketing budget, so we need your help to get the word out there!

Our aim is to make electronic music sound as natural as possible. We are influenced by any music that is minimal and sounds good, whether it be electronic or not.
We started out making electronic music in 2003 and have since been making tracks for various compilations, mainly on the Russian label Mighty Robot Recordings. At this point we would like to focus on doing remixes and original tracks for upcoming releases. We do not want to limit ourselves to one genre, but hope to experiment with different styles and tempos in order to find new ways of expressing ourselves.
We are an electronic music duo from Minneapolis, MN. Our songs are very minimal, but we are not. We’ve been performing live since 1996 and have released several albums on CD and vinyl over the years.

The Minimal Electronic Music Project is a collaboration between the two of us, Brian and Jana. We write, record and produce all of our own songs and videos. Brian is a 30 year veteran video producer who has worked with numerous artists and record companies and Jana is a musician with over 25 years experience as a classically trained pianist and concert master who has recorded several albums.
We are based in Los Angeles, California but we also have an office in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where we work on projects when we’re not at home. We have performed live at many venues around the world including: The Hollywood Bowl, Troubadour Club, The Viper Room, The Roxy Theater and many more.
Our music can be described as minimal electronic music because it uses only one instrument (piano), which makes it different from most electronic music which usually uses multiple instruments such as drums or synthesizers to create sound effects. Our music does not contain any lyrics so you can enjoy listening without worrying about what they mean or how it will affect your moods/emotions when listening to them later on.
Autechre make their music with a computer, but their music doesn’t sound like most computer music. Their songs don’t have much melody, or harmony, or rhythm. Instead they make the listener pay attention to how the sounds change over time. They are often compared to classical composers like Satie or Ligeti whose music was similarly interested in textures and processes.
Autechre’s music has been evolving steadily over 20 years, but there hasn’t been much change in the last seven years. They’ve been refining a technique that they invented around the time of their 1999 album “EP7.”
This style is sometimes called “glitch” because it is built from tiny fragments of sound which are digitally processed and then glued back together. The result is a kind of electronic music that almost anyone can enjoy as sound – something not-music – but which rewards closer listening with a complex and subtle beauty that is too easily lost.
Minimal electronic music explores the “minimal” aesthetic in electronic music. Minimal electronic music is a form of academic electronic music and may be considered a musical response to minimalism in art. The term itself is now employed by musicians and artists working across a wide range of genres.
Minimalist composers often employ repetition in their works. In contrast, the use of repetition within the music of minimal electronic musicians can run from sparse and infrequent (as with certain works by Loscil) to aggressive and ubiquitous (e.g., Philip Jeck’s vinyl looping) or extremely fast (e.g., Merzbow’s noise compositions). While this might be considered a parallel to minimalist contrappuntal devices, it is generally agreed that the rhythmic structures employed by these musicians are quite different than those used by minimalist composers of contemporary classical music.
The minimalist style has found its way into other forms of music, including trip hop, post-rock, math rock, drone, chillwave, ambient house and IDM.
