Jesse Paul Miller is an American visual/sound artist and musician who's been exploring many realms of creating, from drawing, painting and sculpture to audio releases, radio broadcasts and installation. Miller has been involved in a variety of music projects and bands, most notoriously Factums, who have, since 2004, released 6 albums featuring a unique mix of lo-fi punk, sound collage and noise, somewhat reminiscent of the musical areas explored by Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle and The Residents. One of the many highlights in their discography, Alien Native, is available on the Siltbreeze label. Miller's other music projects and collaborations include work with Sun City Girls, Climax Golden Twins, Aframes, 4shadows, Dave Knott, Eric Lanzilotta, Robert Millis, and others.

In 2005, Miller began a series of travels through Southeast Asia. During these trips he amassed a collection of field recordings and music which he has self-released in CD-Rs, now digitally available at his Bandcamp page. Selections from these recordings are now being released in December 2014 on the Sublime Frequencies label. You can listen to samples and order it HERE.

Miller’s visual work is based on themes relating to spirituality, location, memory, imagination, ephemera, and metaphysics; considering all to be layers of reference in which to combine. His work has been seen and heard in the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, the Middle East, and is included in the collection of the Seattle Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, Western Bridge, and numerous private collections. His most recent body of paintings are inspired by his travels through Asia. He currently lives in Seattle, where he continues to draw, paint, play music and assemble recordings.

"While industrial music hasn't had a real resurgence that's made an impact like its initial footprint with Throbbing Gristle and COUM Transmissions in the mid 70's, the current blossoming crop of contumacious and anti-image based 'bands' like Factums and their melodically corrupt circle of conspirators could easily be the original formula's righteous second coming."
