Refracting post-punk sensibilities through an abstract lens, Madison, Wisconsin’s Beau Devereaux began to shape the local scene through his prolific work as Samantha Glass. Beau wistfully mediates his own inner strife and anxiety through a host of vintage electronics, field recordings and deep, expressive vocals. Using a dense variety of sound sources processed through echo-driven effects, Devereaux submerges the listener into ominous vignettes from Glass' beautifully bleak mind.
Samantha Glass is an expression of Devereaux’s own complicated journey through self-identification, often dissonant, androgynous and exploratory.
“The world's continual breathing is what we hear and call silence.”

"I would like to write a book which would drive men mad, which would be like an open door leading them where they would never have consented to go, in short, a door that opens onto reality." ― Antonin Artaud
