Pure Shifter is a process acting upon and through materials to produce what is, essentially, electro-punk dance music -- the problems of genre notwithstanding. This project includes but is not limited to: People (John Genz, Doug Deitchler), places (West Side Saint Paul, NE Mpls), things (Keyboards, devices, vocal cords, moving bodies), and ideas (Digital workstations, ideological programming, aesthetics, codes of conduct).
