Formed in 2010 by Mark Dwinell in Brooklyn, FORMA’s combustible mixture of minimalism, ambient explorations, and frenetic rhythm has captivated the margins of the international underground since their 2011 self-titled debut on John Elliott’s influential Spectrum Spools label. Following 2012’s darker OFF/ON, the trio set course toward the perimeter of the dance floor, releasing their Cool Haptics EP on The Bunker New York in 2014. Physicalist, their debut for Kranky, features new member and multi-instrumentalist John Also Bennett along with George Bennett on percussion, and is a shift in a new direction for the group - their first recording to utilize acoustic instrumentation. FORMA’s celebrated live performances -- extended, often improvisational journeys veering from the ecstatic to the foreboding -- draw techno, noise, and synth disciples into their realm.
