Blevin Blectum is a wordless sonic-world-builder, a sound designer situated precariously on a scaffolding of loosely precise and drastically personal time and structure - a creature of speculative sonic fictions. She has performed electronic music / multimedia worldwide since 1998. She also tours and records with her better Blectal half, Kevin Blechdom. Together they form the doubly-troubled entity BLECTUM FROM BLECHDOM. They tied for second prize in 2001, bagging the Ars Electronica Award of Distinction in Digital Musics (Linz, Austria) for their first full-length album The Messy Jesse Fiesta. Blevin Blectum's most recent collaboration is with her brother Kelley Polar, co-producing live radio play science fiction for violin, viola, electronics, voices, and theatrical objects. Her fifth solo album, EMBLEM picks up where her critically acclaimed 2008 release GULAR FLUTTER left off. The Wire magazine (UK) tapped GULAR FLUTTER as one of its top 15 Electronic records of 2008. Blevin produces continued electronics with a more oblique slant on the basic BFB sensation of things-not-quite-right-here, clanking, creaking grooves and anti-grooves as a coal-powered spacecraft from some steampunk parallel universe potentiality, puffing and straining as it struggles to reach escape velocity, chopped, noise-reduced and timed/stretched to the breaking/boiling point, generally fucked-with samples of everything from hand-slapped rain-drenched leaves in courtship gardens and antique broken Beatnik banks to ProTooledFree classic utterly dance- able disembodied-blissful-transvestite-stand-up-comic vocals.
