Thread: Forming an experimental/math rock band

Shea is looking for Guitarist, Bass Guitarist, Percussionist / Drummer, Vocalist or Keyboardist that plays Rock, Punk Rock, Heavy Metal, Alternative Rock or Visual Kei

Hey! I'm a beginner guitarist looking for people to jam with. Mainly in search of drummers/vocalists/bassists for a start, but would be more than happy to have other instrumentalists on board (keyboard/horns/ name it) - as long as you're someone really keen to discover genre-defying sounds.

I see myself drawing plenty of inspiration from dreadful post-rock, noise, and experimental bands/artists such as Swans, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Nurse With Wound, The Residents, Lydia Lunch, Machine Girl, and Merzbow. Yet at the same time, I listen to a variety of music - Sonic Youth, Talking Heads, Suicide, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Burzum, CAN, Sun Ra, and Molchat Doma, just to name some of them.

As mentioned, I'm still a beginner guitarist trying to wrap my head around music theory (while I do have a musical background playing the piano and orchestras in the past). Would be great if someone more experienced could teach me the ropes, but I'd be happy to grow with other beginners as well! That being said, however, I wish to play with a group of people who's more interested in free-form music (not so much of the technicalities) and would love to discover personal meaning and vision in it. If this goes well, I could also see this turning into some sort of art collective.

If you're keen, feel free to let me know in the comments below x
