Biography

Emileigh Rohn is a solo artist who produces the dark industrial electronic music project Chiasm signed by Cop International records. She has released three full-length albums, Disorder, Relapse, and REFORM, and her music has been featured on several compilation CDs, in the PC video game Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines by Troika Games, on the CBS television series NCIS and in the independent film Extinguish released by Outsider Filmworks. The name Chiasm (Greek χίασμα, “crossing”) comes from the biological term of the crossing of optic neurons in the brain that allow people to have continuous and peripheral vision. Chiasm is produced in Detroit, USA.

At the age of five, Emileigh Rohn began taking piano lessons from her church organist, Mildred Benson, and eventually began singing solos in church. By the age of 13 she received a Casiotone keyboard and began experimenting with electronic music. In her final year of high school she joined an experimental/industrial performance art group called Inter Animi.

In the fall of 1997, while studying molecular biology in Detroit, Rohn joined Calvin P. Simmons in his project Dragon Tears Descending (DTD) as a keyboardist doing performances and supporting other bands. Rohn then left DTD and formed her own project Electrophoretic Transfer in 1998.

Chiasm began in 1998 when Rohn began to entirely produce her own music with her first demo CD named “Embryonic” completed in October. Her song “Bouncing Baby Clones” was featured on a Detroit Electronica compilation CD, DT, in the spring of 1999. By March 2001, Rohn released her debut album, Disorder on COP International.
