About Swan Meat
Reba Fay, born 1994, alias Swan Meat, is a poet, audio engineer, and composer from Washington, D.C living in Cologne, Germany.
Informed by her experience with chronic illness and body dysmorphia, her work pairs “a carnivalesque assemblage of spoken word pieces” with jarring, arrhythmic industrial and ambient compositions, built from a library of memories teeming with sonic detritus. Her debut EP, Bounty, was released on Paris’ PERMALNK imprint, and explored recovery from bulimia nervosa.
Fay codes her own plug-ins and Max patches by herself. Recent releases include Knife Splits Ice, a collaborative EP with the Japanese producer Yoshitaka Hikawa and a single for Bala Club.
