Canyons of Static. A band from West Bend, WI, formed in 2005. Featuring husband and wife guitarist Ross Severson and keyboardist Aggie Severson along with bassist Chris Biertzer and drummer
Nathan Gaffney. Canyons of Static is an instrumental quartet that blends the distorted
melodies of shoegaze with the intensely emotional aspects of post-rock. With no central
songwriter, the music evolves from a collective process of experimentation challenging
the boundaries and forms of traditional rock music. They self-released two ep’s in 2006
and their first full-length album, The Disappearance, in 2008. Canyons of Static continues
to grow their audience through a dynamic live show. Performances feature homemade abstract
films projected onto multiple screens creating a unique experience of sight and
sound. Currently Canyons of Static are wrapping up recordings for a new full-length album.
