About

Gyre is an experimental electronics trio in Seattle, formed by Michael Shannon, David Stanford, and Carl Lierman in January of 2012.

Our working method relies on the use of non-standard configurations of a wide cross-section of analog and digital electronics. We each create discrete circuits between these elements that, while they can sustain sonic form, are not always stable. Sounds generated entirely with oscillators, internal and external feedback circuits, simple sound generators, microphone captures, digital processing, forming swirling loops of sound layers.

Our work is informed by the concept of the gyre, the conical helix or spiral of atmospheric phenomena, and the ideas explored by W.B Yeats. Yeats’ vision of the gyre described it as cycles of creation and disintegration that he used to analyze a variety of subjects from human consciousness to historical patterns.

To date, we have performed live in several extremes including the Seattle Center's World’s Fair 50th Anniversary series "Unexpected Arts".
