"In'Sect plays a musical style that takes drone, improv and dark ambient and mixes them together to create a sound of their own"

In'Sect is proud to start the decade with a new six-track release entitled "How Much Does it Matter to the Stars?" on Pale Noise Media. Pale Noise founders and lead composers Matt Wees and Andy Meyer have taken a new direction under In'Sect with this release, and have aimed to articulate their abstract thoughts with exponentially increased clarity using new elements such as through-composition, sound design, and engraved material.

With this release, you will find new acoustic instrumentation and sampling never before articulated with In'Sect. Along with the release comes full scores to the engraved works, as well as articles written by both Matt and Andy reflecting on their abstractions and contemplations heard in HMDIMTTS. As always with every PNM release, bonus promo photos and alternate cover photos are also included in the digital booklet.

With the start of 2020, In'Sect aims to open up their doors to working with creators nested in the film and dance industry. This is a world In'Sect is eager to begin association with, and any/all business inquiries are welcome through the links below.
