About

Pulse Emitter is the musical project of Daryl Groetsch, based in Portland, Oregon. The synthesizer is integral to his compositions which have been constantly developing through throbbing, harsh and desolate modular-synthesizer adventures, using a home-made system, towards a sound more composed, textual and intricately melodic, evoking microscopic and interstellar landscapes inspired by nature, science-fiction and the cosmos. His discography spans labels including Aguirre, NNA and Ultra Eczema, with new work imminent on Immune, and he has toured dates and festivals in Europe and North America. David Keenan has called Pulse Emitter "The undisputed king of planetary scale synth hypnosis" and has said, "No one is making synth music that feels so organic, so rapturous and so 'in tune' with the contours of outer and inner space as Groetsch."
