Insect Ark is the new solo project from Dana Schechter, known for her work with Bee and Flower and M. Gira’s Angels of Light (Swans). Based in Brooklyn, Insect Ark is composed and performed as an analog-electronic hybrid: one woman, a sampler, a bass, a lapsteel and a keyboard.

Creating her personal soundtrack to the human psyche’s underbelly, Schechter’s sounds weave a brooding, textural landscape, a starless night spiked with sparkling moments of light and flash. Intimate and cold at the same time, this foray into her aggressive and experimental musical side braids a strong sense of melody into the twists and turns with delay drenched lapsteel, distorted synthesizers and bass, and sparse drum programming.


released March 15, 2013

Written, Performed & Recorded by Dana Schechter at Picasso Machinery, Brooklyn NY, Mixing: Ethan Donaldson, Brooklyn NY, Mastering: Douglas Henderson, Berlin Germany
