About

Experimental Housewife has been playing and combining music for nearly twenty years. Having been the member of several bands and projects ranging from Canadian act Man meets Bear to Danish artist Crystal Shipsss, and DJing awkwardly young at 12-years-old, it is safe to say that she is a seasoned and well-informed selector. Her sound, whether DJing or hybridizing material, is loud, awe-inspiring, stimulating, and tightly sewn. ExHouse sets are replete with rhythmic force smothered in nostalgic drone; they are complex canopies which are so familiar, you feel that you've heard it a hundred times before. Such a style promotes diversity and the relinquishment of fixed categories, whether political or sonic. This style furthermore lends itself to the ethereal and is pointed at some kind of goal, an upheaval in which listeners are included and engaged, no matter who they are. ExHouse hails from Montana, USA and lived in Berlin, Germany in the late 2000s. She currently resides in New Mexico, USA.

Bio:
(short)
Experimental Housewife is exactly what you'd think: an experimental DJ and producer. With an impeccable taste in house, deep house, and techno classics, ExHouse often slices through all genres with her hard techno and noise side. Also a drummer and professor, ExHouse is moreover a longstanding collector -- and selector -- of electronic music. Her sets are bizarre treats replete with force and nostalgic layers. Whether you're in for a gnarly set or something eclectic and narrational, you can always sense her percussionist mind, academic technique, and house music heart.

(long-ish)
Percussionist, DJ, sonic collage artist, and producer Evelyn Malinowski has been playing and combining music for nearly twenty years. Having served as either a drummer or keyboardist for various post-rock and experimental projects throughout the years, it is safe to say that Experimental Housewife is a multifarious musician. When looking at her long DJ career, which began awkwardly young when she was 12-years-old, there is little room for saying that ExHouse is anything other than a seasoned selector. Her sound can be either loud or soothing, but it is consistently genre defiant. Replete with rhythmic force and nostalgic aspects, each set is thoughtfully curated; one can always sense the complex canopy of an ExHouse set and the way it spans palettes -- as well as eras -- while engaging a diversity of listeners. In short, ExHouse sets are bizarre treats for the ear and the mind.

(academic)
Professor Evelyn Marie Malinowski is first and foremost a music listener. Collecting, compiling, and conceptualizing accumulated music since she was a child, Malinowski has grown into an organizing wiz, whether dealing with sounds, information, physical objects, or itineraries. Her drive to compile and collage led her to pursue academia as a vocation (or an avocation, depending on how you look at it). At first drawn to study via an unknown fascination with medieval history, Malinowski has grazed the scholastic fields of Oral Traditions, Shakespeare, German Romanticism, Modernity, Mythology, and Sound Studies. She has taught and lectured on these same subjects; additionally, she has demonstrated proficiency in rhetoric, classical argument, standardized writing and formatting, as well as grammar. Teaching writing, language, and literature for over five years, Malinowski's métier of applied or applicable classroom subjects ranges from cultural history to theory and English philology. She has also tutored conversational German and is knowledgeable in the political history of German-speaking Europe. She is also an animal lover.
