Emme Phyzema biography
Emme PHYZEMA is a colorful avant / brutal prog multi-instrumentalist recluse from Ohio, USA. After keeping to herself for over a decade, Emme recently began the process of cleaning up a ridiculous mess of material and has released two albums this year (2019) with many more to go.

Emme's uncompromising musical arrangements sway between overwhelmingly obsessive, carelessly catchy and all around zany. Although aggressive & noisy at times, her anxiety inducing melodies are paradoxically pleasant. The most consistent roots in Emme Phyzema's sound are the layered melodic theme / motif references hidden in her music for the dedicated listener; her love of folk, classical & avant / RIO shines through a shrouded veil of self absorbed insanity.

It?s certainly a wild ride.

Review by admireArt
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Raunchy, offbeat & Heavy/Metal Rock tainted with enough tempo and instrument selection discrepancies and songwriting whims to fit into the Avant Prog/Rock in Opposition lands.

Emme Phyzema - Dispelling Differences , an 11 track release (2019), is, if not groundbreaking as such, quiet daring. But for this Progressive sub-genre´s standards it is not that surprising.

Its music composition, to set it somewhere, runs freely from Zappaesque structures to King Crimson´s eeriest moments to OH´s Heavy Metalness to other Prog fellow´s subtle references (EL&P, Diamanda Galas, etc) and her own kind of frantic madness, but besides impeccable performances and very good musical ideas, something quiet falls short.

Like an emerging artist (or anti-artist) she is on the making, it shows, but if taken without hasty expectations or far fetched pretentions or proportions she truly is a promising one and hopefully in the future will develop an "all hers" musical language.

As for now 3 PA´s stars.

5 stars Eccentric, complicated but beautiful, concentrated.

A Columbus-based artist Emme PHYZEMA has come up into sudden prominence as a one-lady experimental rock / metal project. Her eponymous creation is filled with crazy slushy metallic architecture sometimes with weird Zeuhlish texture or sometimes with classical sound orbit. Basically there is full of sound dissection like the horrible sleeve pic, but another solemn, gorgeous melody brilliance beneath her soundscape. You can feel her promising musical diversity and incredible talent as a multi- instrumentalist.

And it's crazy impressive colourful variation of sound essence can be heard here and there via not only the whole album but also every track. Of course the rhythmic basis created her hands has no deviation nor sagging moment. Critically strict instrumental unification, crystallization should drive you into kinda wild party, without feeling any eccentricity in an eventual manner. It's pretty great you listen to her entire production from the beginning until the end without breathing ... on the contrary, the epilogue "The Void Is A Porno" is splendidly beautiful and a bit tragic, that will move you to tears.

Obviously this album will be one of the best in 2019 for me ... anyway my fave is a short track "Partial Sequence" featuring Emme's sincere and "charming" voices through that I can find her cuteness. Thank you!

Thanks to dAmOxT7942 for the artist addition.
