My name is Billy Gomberg. I live in San Francisco. My interest is in creating a space, real or imagined, poetic or remembered, where a relationship can develop, where we can share some of each other’s inner language and experience.  Musical material from analog & digital synthesis and processing, in addition to various fidelities of field recordings & electroacoustic material, lay ground and illuminate our duration there. I am of the city as much as I am of nature, my practice brings me comfort through its exploration of emotion and experience, a means to articulate a poetry of our inner lives made available in the exchange of listening.

Billy’s solo LP Slight At That Contact was pressed by Students of Decay and released in October 2016, and recent cassettes Transition and Beginners, were released in 2017 and 2018 (respectively) on Dinzu Artefacts, with A Changed Meaning issued by Strange Rules coming between them.

Scaffolding was released in early 2020 as an initial mapping of digital private-press style distribution of media.

Extinguishment, a duo with Anne Guthrie under the name Fraufraulein, was released by Another Timbre in early 2015, and their follow-up Heavy Objects was released by Marginal Frequencies in 2017.
