Metavari is the moniker of American composer and graphic artist, Nathaniel David Utesch. Metavari's dark, cinematic records make extensive use of nostalgic electronics and sampling—referencing a patchwork of electronic genres; new wave and industrial, modern electronica, and the voltage-controlled film scores that raised Generation X.
The project was conceived as a post-rock oriented full band (2008-2012), but transitioned to electronic music at the release of Moonless in 2015. Metavari has since produced two records with Mind Over Matter (distributed by Deathwish, Inc.); Oh Diane (2015) and Tetra A.D. (2017); and two international releases with One Way Static (distributed by Light in the Attic); Metropolis (2017) and Symmetri (Deluxe Edition) (2017).
In 2016, Metavari rescored Fritz Lang's 'Metropolis' as a commission for Art House Theater Day. The score was released as a limited, double LP on One Way Static Records for Record Store Day 2017. Symmetri (Deluxe Edition) is a stand-alone edit of the ‘Metropolis’ rescore; introducing new and reconfigured material in addition to selections from the soundtrack.


Metavari have toured widely in the US; sharing the stage with notable acts such as This Will Destroy You, Maserati, Tortoise, Beat Connection, El Ten Eleven, Anamanaguchi, Alex Cameron, Mexican Institute Of Sound, Titus Andronicus, and Small Black.
