Stephen Holliger is a tinkerer, musician and sound designer from the midwest who puts an emphasis on exploring the sonically still and visceral. He has been in the video industry for over a decade and specializes in creating unique and often tranquil music to bring new atmospheres to motion pictures and under his long running recording and performing project, Swim Ignorant Fire. Swim Ignorant Fire has always ignited new ideas in progressive ambience with experimental growth in guitar, electronics, synthesizers, and field recording. The 2020 SIF album, Proxima Centauri has been the latest dive into murky FM synthesis. His upcoming single To the Nnth is the next sonic step in musical course through repetitive Reich-like melody, arpeggiation, and dissonance.
