Solo artist and member of Shadowlust and ppG.
51717 is the intuitive language of New York-based artist Lili Schulder, a longtime fixture in the NYC D.I.Y. electronics scene. Releases on cult underground labels such as Jealous God, Total Black, and L.I.E.S. have served as tangible documentation of her exploration of themes and unpacking of emotions handed down to her via an Orthodox Jewish upbringing. 51717’s minimalist sound design is focused on the transmission and decay of overwhelming thematic elements into minor sonic forms. Here, her work touches on implicit musical tensions between noise and silence, language and sound, material and transcendence -- dichotomies that often form the binaristic conditions that are confronted and deconstructed within meditative and ritualistic practice.
