Profile
The band began in 2008 as a collaboration between Emily Pothast, a vocalist and songwriter who earned an MFA in visual art before devoting her attentions to music and David Golightly, an analog synth-head who was deeply influenced by courses led by Karlheinz Stockhausen during his studies in composition and electronic music in Germany. In early 2009, Midday Veil's sound was catalyzed by the addition of guitarist Timm Mason, a prolific multi-instrumentalist obsessed with modular synthesis, musique concrète, and Middle Eastern guitar tones. In 2011, the band added Jayson Kochan on bass and Sam Yoder on percussion. Rhythmic duties are currently on the shoulders of Garrett Moore, who replaced original drummer Chris Pollina in 2012.
