IE (pronounced “eee”), from Minneapolis, MN, is a band devoted to experiences of hypnotic minimalism—sonic rituals from the future. Formed in 2016, IE performs with sustained tones, electronic whirrs, slow beats, video and film projections, metaphysical recitations, and carefully crafted atmospheres. Featuring keyboardist Michael Gallope (Janka Nabay, New Pope, Starring), drummer Meredith Gill, singer and multi-instrumentalist, Mariel Oliveira (XOXO Tech), and guitarist / keyboardist Travis Workman, they have performed at the Big Ears Festival, Milwaukee Psych Fest, Drone not Drones Festival, Zebulon (LA), Constellation and Elastic Arts (Chicago), H0l0 (New York), and Mississippi Studios (Portland, OR), among dozens of other venues across North America. IE has released three cassettes of minimal drone music (Shinkoyo, MJMJ), a live recording of Terry Riley’s Keyboard Study No. 2 (Drone Not Drones), and two full-length albums, Pome (Moon Glyph/ISH) and Junk Body (Shinkoyo-Artist Pool/ISH).
