Jarrad Powell, Pulse Emitter says
Gift Tapes/DRAFT presents a night of experimental electronic music featuring Jarrad Powell & Pulse Emitter.

Jarrad Powell is a composer, performer, and teacher. He is currently a professor in the Music Department at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle where he teaches composition, world music, gamelan, tuning and temperament, and other theory-related classes. He is Director of Gamelan Pacifica and Co-Director of IETI+I ("yeti"), the Institute of Emergent Technology + Intermedia at Cornish. His compositions have been performed and broadcast internationally and include pieces for voice, gamelan, various western and non-western instruments, electroacoustic music, music for theater, dance and experimental film. His work also includes numerous cross-cultural collaborations, particularly with Indonesian artists. Since the early 80’s he has directed the group Gamelan Pacifica, one of the most active and adventurous gamelan ensembles in the U.S. As Music Director and composer for Scott/Powell Performance, a contemporary dance company formed in 1994, he has created over 20 major works with choreographer and visual artist Mary Sheldon Scott. Other projects also include music for three innovative short films of Robert Campbell, as well as Campbell's most recent feature-length film Pulchrior In Luce. His music can also be heard on environmental activist and filmmaker Jeff Fox’s most recent documentary film How to Let Go of the World (and Love All the things Climate Can’t Change). His work has been commissioned by The Walker Arts Center, Performing Arts Chicago, On the Boards, Music in Motion, Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Myrna Loy Center/Helena Presents, the National Performance Network as well as individual performers. He has received numerous grants and awards, including NEA, Arts International, Rockefeller Foundation, Paul Allen Family Foundation, 4Culture/King County, Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs/Seattle, Artist Trust Foundation and Creative Capital Foundation. His recordings can currently be found on New World Records, Present Sounds, and Blind Stone Records.

Pulse Emitter is the musical project of Daryl Groetsch, based in Portland, Oregon. He focuses on hyper-melodic synthesizer music that is calming and transportive. Since 2004, he has released albums on acclaimed labels such as Immune Recordings, Beer On The Rug, Constellation Tatsu, Ultra Eczema, Root Strata, NNA Tapes, and Aguirre Records, and has toured dates and festivals in Europe and North America. His music of late maintains a new age synthesizer styling which is frequently nature and science fiction inspired. Ever-evolving, the recent addition of field recordings and global acoustic elements has lent an imaginary/virtual reality world music atmosphere. Music critic David Keenan has said, "No one is making synth music that feels so organic, so rapturous and so 'in tune' with the contours of outer and inner space as Groetsch."
