Via App is Dylan Scheer, a Queens, NY-based electronic producer and performer. She started hosting and playing shows, as well as releasing cassettes as Via App in Boston, and from there she moved on to New York in 2014, where she quickly became an integral part of the city's experimental electronic scene.
Her early live hardware sets brought her recognition for their often stark modes of sample manipulation and collage, dynamic narrative compositions, and their refusal to adhere to any one genre. More recently, her live sets have maintained a similar sense of precariousness. She works synthesized sounds into polyrhythmic infectious grooves which veer from edge to breaking point, unpredictably giving way to either manic frenzy, or complete pause.
Her studio recordings exist, in part, as documentation of her performances and are all recorded live. In 2015, she released "7 Headed," a heavily sample-based techno 12″ that met with critical acclaim. Her hotly anticipated full-length debut, Sixth Stitch, will be released on Break World records in November 2016.
