Rough Weather is Erik Schoster on computer and electronics and Brendan Landis on guitar. A little over a year ago, they started improvising together on occasional Sundays when Brendan lived in Berkeley and Erik lived in San Francisco. A number of graphic scores, sound games, and confused roommates later, the Rough Weather project began to emerge. Their music focuses on non-idiomatic improvisation and textural play.
Erik (He Can Jog, Cedar AV) is a computer musician from Wisconsin. He looks for nice ways to shove traditional song into an acousmatic space without ditching too much of what's good about both.
Brendan (Hey Exit, Crust) is a Californian living in Brooklyn. He listens to a lot of rock music, studies koto, and is an improviser at most things in life.
