Biography

Experiment Haywire started out in late 2004 as an attempt to rebel against her Jewish heritage in which she was forced to take piano lessons. As an avid listener and DJ of electronic, punk, industrial, and noise music (Deconstructed, QXT’s Diva Weekend, Abstraction, etc.) it was only a matter of time before Rachel gave birth to her own musical explosion. Experiment Haywire would express themes of political dissent, female empowerment, war, (internal and external) torture, insanity, contradictory aesthetics, the devaluing of the human condition, and a post-apocalyptic future in this game called life.

Influenced by artists ranging from Einstürzende Neubauten, The Plasmatics, Atari Teenage Riot and S.I.N.A. Rachel decided to form an all female performance art troupe in New York City called Nuclear Riot Party. She began playing at well known venues such as the Knitting Factory and the Continental and quickly gained a devoted cult following among the local (de)population.

Fed up with the herd mentality of the Nuclear Riot Party, Rachel soon decided to get back to Experiment Haywire. While Haywire was originally an avant-garde noise project based on desolate field recordings at weird hours of the morning it soon turned into a rhythmic industrial invasion that incorporated these elements into the harsh and abrasive sound of an electronic punk assault.

The first Experiment Haywire single, “Army or Two,” was released on a 3 CD compilation entitled Women Take Back the Noise. (also featuring Cosi Fanni Tutti, VyL8, and Dark Muse).
