About Wrekmeister Harmonies
Wrekmeister Harmonies is a Chicago-based music project led by producer and composer JR Robinson and multi-instrumentalist Esther Shaw. The group’s name derives directly from the memorable film by Hungarian director Béla Tarr. The duo oscillates around heavy post-rock sounds, metal doom, noise, minimalist music or drone. The artists themselves define themselves as “pastoral doom”. Their spectrum of their artistic experiments is wide, as is the list of musicians who have worked with the group over the years (including Ken Vandermark, Thor Harris, Jamie Stewart and David Yow).
