Best Noise Band - 2012
Jeremy Kannapell is shy and mild mannered. The music he performs as Ghost Ice is anything but. He creates unsettling environments, often using little more than his own breathing noises as source material. Kannapell does not wrangle his aleatoric sounds into music as much as explore the unknown territories that result from their manipulation. His pursuit of "what if?" frequently finds him investigating other mediums and collaborating with other musicians, making him one of the great behind-the-scenes enablers of the St. Louis experimental arts. Kannapell's dynamic with Ghost Ice is not exactly a Clark Kent/Superman scenario, but there is a distinction. Jeremy Kannapell is a great guy. Ghost Ice is an experience.
