Jeremy dePrisco (aka Shivasongster) is a Pennsylvania musician, composer, performer, and sound artist using improvisation, collaboration, and noise to examine and recontextualize the alienation inherent in media influence, socially constructed reality, conspiracy, and myth.

He works with field recordings, guitar, electronics, synthesizers, radios, found sounds, home-made gadgets, and processed video.

A fixture in the electro-music community for the past decade, Jeremy currently presents solo and collaborative sound explorations throughout the Tristate area.

Jeremy dePrisco grew up listening to radio programs like Echoes and Hearts of Space and the signals beaming from his father’s attic Ham Radio workbench. After a rather long detour into Blues, Jazz and Americana, and after being a closet sound experimentalist for 15+ years, Jeremy embraced his electro side and love of audio manipulation via the Shivasongster moniker in 2010. Since then, Jeremy has been attending electronic music events and collaborating with other electro artists. Much of Jeremy’s work draws on Soto Zen Buddhist dharma teachings, Sufi poetry and mystical teachings, and public domain literature.
