Ciarra Black is a producer and DJ based in Brooklyn, New York. Born in New Jersey, her initial tastes were informed by the local music scene in neighboring Philadelphia, attending punk, noise and dance music events from a young age. It was there she formed the duo Appetite with Jane Chardiet (Ascetic House) and began DJing at local underground dance venues. She moved to New York in 2012, quickly becoming a sought-after booking at venues such as Bossa Nova Civic Club, Trans Pecos, Good Room and various warehouse raves throughout Brooklyn. Her live hardware sets are one-of-a-kind improvised soundscapes – rhythmic and noisy, visceral and heady, channeling her influences past, present, and future into a sound that is truly her own. She has performed live at countless venues, highlights of which are MoMA PS1, The Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Smart Bar Chicago, Output, and several Brooklyn warehouse spaces – sharing bills with the likes of Headless Horseman, Drew McDowall, Varg, Young Male, and Antenes. 2016 saw the release of her debut album Pendulum (No-Tech), lauded by The Quietus as “…closer to the gnarly electronics of vintage Throbbing Gristle records than anything else” and Adhoc as “…tense power electronics and dance rhythms in refined ways that coalesce into a mature and focused debut”. 2017 will see her first appearance on 12” vinyl, touring of the U.S. and abroad and an expertly curated slate of releases on her label No-Tech.
