NAMES is a San Francisco cross-genre, experimental music group formed by Gerritt Wittmer and Jesse Jackson. Using crafted sounds and various synth based instruments, they meld darkness with melody and rhythm.
They continue to build momentum, strengthening ties to a new reality by exploring concepts of life, death, pain and the absence thereof, while embracing a void of depravity and austerity.
Gerritt Wittmer is a sound and performance artist based in Houston, Texas. His work often articulates abstract narratives through vocal expression, body performance, and intense theatrical lighting. He has performed and recorded as Gerritt, Ginnungagap (with Stephen O’Malley and Tim Wyskida), Deathroes (with Sixes), and has performed and/or collaborated on projects with Sunn O))), Sissy Spacek, John Wiese, and Paul Knowles. He also directs the publishing house Misanthropic Agenda and is the singer for the band Names.
