Amnesia Scanner is a music duo, performing arts group, xperienz design studio and production house founded in 2013.
In addition to creating bangers at the intersection of cyberrock, avant EDM and doombahton, Amnesia Scanner is interested in how the contemporary experience is mediated, including the ways in which listening to music and live performance is evolving as streaming platforms become dominant and the feedback channels between artists and fans become more direct.
Amnesia Scanner is known for their high intensity live shows. They have performed across festivals and venues across the world as well as staged work at art institutions such as ICA London, HKW Berlin, Lafayette Anticipations in Paris and the Serpentine Gallery Marathon in London.
In 2020 Amnesia Scanner released its second full-length album, Tearless, “a breakup record with the planet” that sonically and melodically expands their oeuvre of signature overclocked pop. Both brooding and rapturous, the record finds Lalita, LYZZA, and Code Orange joining Amnesia Scanner in composing the borderless soundtrack to looming collapse. Tearless channels Deftones as much as reggaeton, menace as much as the drop-outness of grunge.
Amnesia Scanner released SCAMMER in September 2021. It is their largest body of musical work so far: 555 uniques pieces of music ranging anywhere between beats and drones to vocals phrases to more fully formed compositions from the past 8 years spent in the studio.
