Via App is an alias of Dylan Scheer, Queens based electronic producer and performer. She started hosting and playing shows, as well as releasing tapes under the moniker in Boston. From there, she moved to New York in 2014 and quickly became part of the city’s experimental electronic scene. Her early live hardware sets got her recognition for their often stark mode of sample manipulation and collage, their dynamic narrative compositions, and their refusal to adhere to any one genre. More recently her live sets have maintained a similar sense of precariousness. She works samples and her synthesized sounds into polyrhythmic infectious grooves which threaten to break at any moment, unpredictably giving way to manic frenzy, or complete pause. Her studio recordings exist, in part, as documentation of her performances and are all recorded live.
In 2015 she released “7 Headed”, a heavily sample-based techno 12” that received critical acclaim, landing her a spot on the top 10 electronic releases of the year in the Wire, and an artist feature on Resident Advisor. She has toured Europe and played esteemed festivals such as Moogfest, Sustain-Release, and Rewire, and will play Unsound Festival in October. A Via App track is featured in an Objekt mix and its accompanying 12″ of rarities on Tresor which was released this summer. She will release a 12″ on BANK records this fall and her debut LP, Sixth Stitch is set for release on Break World in November.
