Biography

Seattle, WA, United States

Mamiffer is a musical project from Seattle, WA, United States, spearheaded by pianist Faith Coloccia, aided by Travis Rommereim, Daniel McCoy, Aaron Turner and Alex Barnet.

Faith Coloccia’s early work as co-founder of the avant-guerilla sound experimentalists Everlovely Lightningheart was an exercise in re-examining traditional concepts of performance. Shows took place in sewers, art galleries, desert landscapes, and, on rare occasions, scattered about the corners and floor space of rock clubs. The shows were hypnotic, transcendent, and occasionally violent. Recycled scraps were turned into instruments; instruments were turned into groaning organisms.

After the disbanding of Everlovely Lightningheart, Faith began composing new material on piano. Navigating the creative process as a solo artist, she moved away from her more improvisational past and took a structured approach to her new compositions.
The result was “Hirror Enniffer”, her debut under the moniker Mamiffer. Recruiting an assortment of musicians from the Seattle area, including drummer Chris Common, bassist Brian Cook, cellist/vocalist Annie Hozoji Matheson-Margullis, guitarists Aaron Turner and Ryan Frederiksen, Faith took her fractured neo-classical compositions and infused them with ambient electrical hums and a reductionist metal dirge.

Two years later, after splitting her time between the perpetual gray of the Pacific Northwest and the sun-baked deserts of Southern California, Coloccia began the process of drafting up her second full-length, Mare Decendrii.
