Emeralds-Solar Bridge (2008) & Steve Hauschildt-Critique of the Beautiful (2009)


Emeralds is John Elliott, Steve Hauschildt and Mark McGuire. They are currently based in Cleveland, Ohio. Their music is of an improvisational nature and is synthesizer and guitar-centric, however vocals, electronics and field recordings are often utilized to create dynamic textures amidst melodious backdrops and minimal structures.

Solar Bridge released by Hanson Records (Aaron Dilloway’s experimental/noise label in Oberlin, OH/Ann Arbor, MI).


Emeralds member Steve Hauschildt's solo album off his label Gneiss Things (Cleveland, OH). Straightforwardly beautiful keyboard set, haunting, melancholy melodies with rolling fuzz and choirs of heavenly synth. Full-colour sleeve art by Steve.
