Album Notes
We are a cutting-edge improvisational duo, consisting of Aaron Krister Johnson on synthesizer, and Andy Hasenpflug on percussion.

Our music might be labelled 'mystical' or 'surreal'. We like using tuning systems other than 12-tone equal standard tuning. Our influences might be: Morton Subotnick, Tod Dockstader, Iannis Xenakis, Steve Reich, Indian and African music, Gregorian Chant, Olivier Messiaen, and Toru Takemitsu.

Divide by Pi was chosen to be the unsigned artist of the month for June 2004 by Keyboard magazine. They called our music "challenging and creative", and said that our "accessible brand of improvisational noise music or sound sculpture echoes Louis and Bebe Barron, Morton Subotnick, and Iannis Xenakis...Even at its most adventurous, there's a light, gossamer feel to the synth sounds that avoids the grating sound common to much noise music.

Beautiful Noise
Divide by Pi captures the musical impulse perfectly- First listen is surprise at the textures and the variety of sounds the duo is capable of, and repeated listenings inspire me to be creative as well! Hypnotic!
