Portland, Oregon-based electronic musician Daryl Groetsch started Pulse Emitter being a harsh sound project, but as time passes his music morphed into dark ambient/drone, and finally Berlin School-style kosmische and modern. A devoted collector of modular synthesizers, he started launching CD-Rs as Pulse Emitter in 2004 and quickly became a fixture from the Portland sound scene. Although some of his recordings and shows had been bleak and punishing, others drifted out into even more alien spaces, merging sparse, hypnotic drones with piercing, trebly reviews. He also made more relaxing music, and in 2007, he initiated his Meditative Music group of albums created for rest, relaxation, and therapeutic massage. He continued launching loud recordings for brands like Digitalis (Oppressive Character) and Ultra Eczema (Decaying Boats), but by 2011, he previously pretty much shed the harsher components from his function, and his music offers just become brighter and even more spiritual since that time. After releasing several LPs and cassettes on brands such as for example Aguirre, Defense, Cylindrical Habitat Modules, and NNA Tapes, Metallic Postcard released Planetary Size Synth Hypnotherapy, a 2014 double-CD compilation. On following releases such as for example 2015’s Digital Rainforest (Ale for the Rug) and 2016’s Through the Website (Phinery Tapes), his function became more complex, incorporating acoustic percussion and field recordings, aswell as advanced digital development. In 2017, Hausu Hill released Mugen, Vol. 9, a break up cassette with Brett Naucke.
