Cordell Klier is an avant-garde sound artist, graphic designer, & label owner from Minneapolis MN.
Since the beginning of his career in music Cordell has continued to carve his own trails & musical nitches with his sincere abilities to bridge the widest of gaps between many of the divided music cultures & sub-cultures. Sometimes to the dismay, and sometimes to the rejoicing of critics and fans alike.
His extensive musical background has brought him to and from such genres as electro-acoustic, dark ambient, lowercase, grim punk, death industrial, black metal, glitch, psi-trance, power electronics, drum-n-noise, click-n-cut, clicno, minimal techno, noise, sound collage, sound processing, neo folk, neo-classical, a capella, progressive/occultic/jazz/fusion, and ultraminimalist, and finaly post-pop - just to name but a few.
Starting out in 1987 with his first metal band Shadow, Cordell has since moved on to form numerous other acts such as Vedisni, Dream Eternal, Climb to Zalem, No Human Day, Monstrare, Under Crushing Wings, etc., etc., the list goes on and on…
He has since started a tape label in 93 called Will Crushed Communications.
After this (in '95) Cordell started a CD-r label called Doctrine Insectuas which later became his highly successful CD/LP label Doctsect. He also works part time at Lava Lounge as an apparel coordinator for fun, and is an freelance graphic design consultant for many small buisnesses around The Twin Cities / Metro area.
Not only does he manage all this but also works with an amazing 13 other recording lables to release his own work internationaly.
When asked why he branches out to such an extent artisticly; "I've got no choice, it's a calling. One in which I cannot ignore."
