Metavari is an instrumental post-rock band from Indiana. Formed in 2006, songs were piecemealed by airmail between the members of the band who lived in Indiana and a remaining member who was living in the Far East. The band recorded bits and pieces of ideas and slowly formed songs over the course of several months. Combined with their use of digital programming, Metavari experiments with sonic textures, self-manufactured tones and vintage equipment to develop a style that is purely organic and undeniably digital.
Metavari debuted on July 6th, 2007. 180 people watched them perform at Fort Waynes Public Library. Their set was accompanied by a screen and projector that ran original short films synced to each song. Metavari has since brought the videos to every show theyve played, projecting them onto a 100 sq ft backdrop and spilling the light onto the stage. To date, Metavari has scored original music for a short film in Washington, DC, written three original songs in three television commercials for a regional hospital and recently finished a live performance of remixes and original arrangements/interpretations of the Beach Boys Pet Sounds album, called ...And the way they feel.
