Under the pseudonym Eartheater, Alexandra Drewchin is a New York based self produced multi instrumentalist, composer, and vocalist (with a voice ranging from tenor to whistle-tone) challenging pedantic linguistic systems with her highly unpredictable output. In 2015, Alexandra, released two records, Metalepsis and RIP Chrysalis, that received wide critical acclaim for their experimentation with pop and classical paradigms. In the past year, performing throughout the world, her hyper composed emotionally manipulative pieces are polarized by improvisational destruction. In observing her live performances, the visual and vicarious amplification of Drewchin’s process is experienced simultaneously in Eartheater’s physical body as she contorts and pushes tensions to the brink.
The paragraph under the video credits is the official description of Alexandra's October 2016 residency at Otion Front Studio in Brooklyn where the above video was filmed. The complete performance was 45 minutes. The shorter video highlights a condensed version along with two tracks from her score. According to Purple, those songs are called "Bitchwave" and "Teen Mom Earth".
