Austin, Texas, United States

Vanessa Rossetto is an American composer, violist and visual artist from Austin, Texas, United States. She uses primarily instrumentation, , s and a wide array of different objects exploring them through extended and traditional techniques and other methods of her own devising. Trained as a painter, she seeks the same result in both her visual and sound work: the exposition of overlooked narratives.

She has recorded and released two full-length CD-Rs as The Mighty Acts of God on the labels Ruralfaune and MYMWLY, as well as appearing on numerous compilation tracks and collaborative releases with Pulga, Wondrous Horse, Bright Duplex, Hwaet, Catrider and others, and in 2008 launched her own CD-R label, Music Appreciation. Through this imprint she released the first four solo albums under her own name: Misafridal, Imperial Brick, Whoreson In the Wilderness and the award-winning Dogs In English Porcelain.

Her 2010 cassette release with period.tapes, pdd-nos, was described by Byron Coley in The Wire as sounding like “being under attack from slow-moving dune worms”.

In November 2010 her first 12” LP, Mineral Orange, was released by Graham Lambkin’s KYE records. In September 2011 she performed a duo set with Lambkin at Amplify 11 in New York City. Her second LP for Kye, Exotic Exit, was released in September 2012 and Temperament as Waveform, a collaboration with Manchester based artist Lee Patterson, will be released in January 2013 by Another Timbre.

    Really great, indeed. Shame she went vinyl-only on her last few releases.

    Exotic Exit hasn't left my turntable in a week. I can't scrobble so you'll just have to believe me.

    After ~200 plays, Dogs in English Porcelain continues to amaze and offer up undiscovered nuggets.

    cool taste, good to have you as a friend. If the music on my ipod actually represented my record collection, we'd probably have even more in common.
