Can't is Jessica Rylan, a n-n-noisician who exercises both restraint and vengeance in her ability to cause emotional discomfort and physical pain in the ear, as well as a unique kind of closeness and shared ecstatic state. Using analog synthesizers, a little rhythm box here, a couple distortion pedals there. Observes the Bay Guardian, “The sounds breathed from her homemade modular synths don't come off as ladylike - they're as monstrous and violent at the appropriate volumes as the harshest noise…. [G]entle intimacy with her instrument, the lightness of her voice as it passes through … bent circuits, and the passivity of her gestures as she moves the chaotic parameters of the machine in front of her … imbue her performance with femininity.”
