Combining elements of horror-film soundtracks, psychedelic doom metal, and atmospheric noise, NYC/Portland-based instrumental duo Insect Ark is comprised of Dana Schechter (bass, lap steel guitar, synths) and Ashley Spungin (drums, synths). 


Insect Ark’s uncommon sound is in part the amalgamation of these two women’s passions: Schechter’s sinister bass lines and unconventional use of lap steel guitar, and Spungin’s lucid, exacting drumming and synth work.
From its inception, Insect Ark has been about creating music that transports, both physically and psychologically. Both women make work with no borders – they are DIY makers, multi-instrumentalists, gearheads, and visual artists. In addition to their roles in Insect Ark, Spungin does live sound, runs her own electronics/pedal company Ormus Electronics; Schechter composes music for film and is a video maker/animator for Film/TV.
