Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, Mem1 has traveled extensively, performing at Roulette (NYC), REDCAT / Disney Hall (LA), the Orange County Museum of Art, the San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, and, in Spring 2009, the Borealis Festival (Bergen). In 2007, they were awarded an artist residency at Harvestworks in New York for the creation of a new Surround Sound piece, Sonodendron. This year they travel throughout Europe, Norway, and Israel to take part in residencies at STEIM (NL), Kunstenaarslogies (NL) and USF Verftet (Norway), and to perform and create a sound installation for the Museums of Bat Yam (Israel). Their third full-length album, +1, consists of collaborations between Mem1 and artists such as Steve Roden, Jan Jelenik, and Frank Bretschneider. It will be released in early 2009 by Interval Recordings.

They will be performing at the upcoming Boralis festival.
