Puce Mary is the solo moniker of Danish-born experimental musician, composer and sound artist Frederikke Hoffmeier.
With a long career in experimental electronic music – Puce Mary has a reputation for intense live performances that span from gripping renditions of cinematic composition to the full-on fury of off-the-cuff harsh noise.
Oft-identified with the now-generation of industrial noise, the project’s recent endeavours explores the field of sound more broadly than before, unfurling a complex sonic and literary narrative of tension and release, amidst disquieting dynamics and surreal cinematics.
With countless releases (most recently on PAN), performances and collaborations with artists such as Drew McDowall (ex-Coil), Varg2TM (Northern Electronics), Kali Malone and Stephen O’Malley, Puce Mary has reached wide acclaim for her powerful and unique blend of modern experimental electronic and noise music.
“If the The Drought concerns itself with metamorphosis, we can see it in how Hoffmeier has transformed herself as Puce Mary, from her earliest tape releases of formless expressions of noise in the darkness, to transmitting ideas and feeling through an increasingly complex musical vocabulary. This is her strongest album to date and one where “noise” is but a tool towards a much more expansive expression of music.”
