Meri von KleinSmid
In addition to her work in phonography, Meri von KleinSmid
is a composer and sound-artist. Classically trained and
educated in Western music and ethnomusicology, her primary
aim is to create work that challenges the listener
psychologically. Her work has been described as stunning,
sparse, frightening and uniquely expansive.

My work is split into two parts: Much of the work I record under my given name ('k.m.krebs')
is abstract ambient music, heavily based on phonography. I also do work under the moniker of
'833-45' -- this project, while being fairly percussion-oriented, relies heavily on recordings
captured from shortwave & HF radio signals (electro-magnetic phonography, if you will). I have
many releases under this alias, most at NoType.com.
'Oneiromancy' CDR - currently self-released, possible release in near future.
