Artist Profile: Khate

Khate (Newport News, VA): NanoHz No.9

Khate is a sound artist and circuit-bender hailing from Newport News,
Virginia. Using a menagerie of vintage, modified, and self-made
electronic instruments, she creates experimental music at turns
ambient, rhythmic, and concrete. The result is a hypnotic collage of
dark textures, static-laden beats, and bursts of electrobabble,
punctuated with unusual samples from the Vinyl Translator (a
circuit-bent turntable) and metal percussion.
