A founding member of Xiao Ma Party Controllers, vveiss practices across disciplines as an alchemist, organizer, multimedia artist, and DJ. Their improvised hybrid-performances carve paths between restraint and spontaneity, inducing submission through droning walls of sound, microtonally-modulated vocals, and hypnotic rhythms. Wielding a keen sense of energy and time, vveiss careens audiences through treacherous layers of bodied percussion and back to release them afloat down a random- access stream of metallic thoughtforms.
