EMA has existed in text, flesh, video, music and virtual reality. She is most well known as a music producer and performer.
After growing up in South Dakota, Erika M. Anderson moved to California and became involved with the West Coast noise scene. Her band Gowns, with Ezra Buchla, dissolved in 2010 and she released her breakthrough debut album, Past Life Martyred Saints, a year later.
EMA has opened for Throbbing Gristle, Depeche Mode and 16 Bitch Pile-Up, among others. She continues to produce and release audio recordings that defy easy categorization.
