C. Spencer Yeh

Taiwan-born, Cincinnati-based improv musician C. Spencer Yeh builds abstract but cohesive compositions using violin, electronics, vocals, and various other means of sound manipulation. Establishing himself through his solo project, Burning Star Core, Yeh also frequently collaborates with noise bigwigs such as John Wiese, Carlos Giffoni, Tony Conrad, Thurston Moore, Double Leopards, and many others. Taking a modernist approach to his pieces, Yeh strives to create an audio vocabulary that is self-contained within his body of work, but as heady as that sounds, his atmospheric pieces have an obvious order to them, which makes them more engaging than your run-of-the-mill avant-noise. Check out his remix of Cryptacize’s track, Mini-Mythomania.

Recorded a cool, fun, funny, or inspiring video (or even better, all of the above!) that you'd love to have more people see? Well, we'd like to see it. And if we dig it, we'll turn it into a Found At E Minor (FAEM) video for our Facebook audience to enjoy. Check out this awesome recent example and submit your videos here!
