Real Name:
Kate Rissiek
Noise artist based in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Kate Rissiek is a Vancouver based artist performing under the name Rusalka since 2007.
Employing theremin and other electronics, Rusalka achieves visceral and, at times,
abrasive sounds in her exploration of subconscious states and the dark recesses of
human nature. A struggle between filth and transcendence occurs which stirs together
crude electronics and an ethereal electromagnetic grasp for emergence. Her recent work
often features subtle, yet profound, shifts in mood, timbre, and focus demonstrating a
fervent refusal to clearly delineate between introspection and observation.
