Eve Maret is a Nashville-based experimental artist and composer who employs a wide array of electronic media and techniques in her various disciplines, exploring the possibilities of personal and communal healing through creative action. Drawing inspiration from nineteenth-century orchestral and choral works, the Fluxus movement, Kosmische Musik and funk, Eve makes use of digital and analog synthesizers, clarinet, electric bass, acoustic drums, and more to create works that range from lush cinematic compositions to space techno.

Eve has released four solo albums since 2016, most recently The Zone on Curious Music. Her music has been reviewed by WIRE Magazine, Bandcamp Daily, and the Chicago Reader. Eve has toured across the US as well as internationally, where she has performed alongside Matmos, Lydia Lunch, Xiu Xiu, Sun Araw, and JEFF the Brotherhood, among others. In 2018, Eve co-founded Hyasynth House, an electronic music collective for femme and non-binary artists. She continues to organize events to amplify the voices of marginalized groups at Electric Shed in Nashville.

Earth and Space highlights aspects of Eve's playing that have always been present but may have been previously taken for granted. This album takes a more minimalist kind of approach, stripping away some of the propulsive rhythmic patterns of previous works and opting for more space and texture to take center stage. She shirks structure in favor of openness, allowing for her more subtle touches to push through the layers of sound. Her hypnotizing swirls, low-key rhythms, and moody ambience all come into focus in ways we have not experienced on previous releases. There are certainly nods to the practitioners of the Berlin School of electronic music, but those nods are more than efforts to pay homage, they are jumping off points for Eve to take her brand of ambient electronica to new limits.
