IE (pronounced “eeeee”), from Minneapolis, MN, is a band devoted to experiences of hypnotic minimalism — sonic rituals from the future. Their shows feature sustained tones, electronic whirrs, slow beats, video and film projections, metaphysical recitations, and carefully crafted atmospheres. Since 2018, IE has performed live in over 50 performances at Big Ears Festival, Drone Not Drones, Milwaukee Psych Fest, and the Heliotrope Festival, as well as many other clubs, galleries, and DIY spaces from Zebulon (Los Angeles), h0l0 (NYC), Mississippi Studios (Portland, OR), Constellation (Chicago), to Nett Nett Gallery (Tijuana, MX) and Brasserie Beaubien (Montreal, QC).
