About Katie Gately

American experimental electronic musician Katie Gately utilizes a plethora of computer programs in order to mutate and reshape her voice into dense, chaotic, unsettling sound constructions. Her unpredictable compositions waver between abrasive industrial collages and playful, abstract dance-pop tunes, exhibiting an absurdist sense of humor and an ear for rhythm and melody. Born and raised in different boroughs of New York City, Gately earned degrees from Carleton College in Minnesota and the University of Southern California, but never received formal musical training. An avid field recorder, she contributed to the self-titled 2009 CD by collage ensemble Seattle Phonographers Union. The Los Angeles-based artist began uploading her compositions to Soundcloud in 2012, and by the end of the following year, she had released a self-titled 12" EP on Public Information and cassette Pipes on Blue Tapes, both to critical acclaim. Following a limited lathe cut 7" single with Prayer (Joe Houpert) on FET Press, Gately was invited to contribute to FatCat Records' split series, sharing an EP with Tlaotlon. In 2015, Gately appeared on Nosaj Thing's Fated album and remixed Björk's song "Family." She then signed to Tri Angle for the release of her full-length debut, Color, which arrived in October of 2016. ~ Paul Simpson
