Austere

Real Name:
Austere
Profile:
Austere was a group based in Portland, Oregon USA, that made ambient-electronic music.

Their work has covered a wide-variety of ground in the ambient genre: "process music" works (Convergence), minimal dark drones (Monodia), classic flowing "Enoesque" ambient ("fade"), glitchy ambient drum & bass (distance), difficult-to-classify "Coilesque" pastiche (Curio), active, moving "unignorable" ambient (evergone) and blissful, floating guitar-only ambient (Remittance.)

They are also regular contributors free MP3-only projects and labels such as the Dark Duck Drone Download Project and the Dark Winter Coil Tribute Project "Full Cold Moon."
