Have Robot Dog, Will Travel - A song cycle for the technological age. An ode to abstraction, to ambiguity, to words unsaid.

"I love chaos, I love mess, human imperfection."

Manifold musical layers move independently of each other to create a constantly moving landscape, like little creatures on their own separate paths. Have Robot Dog, Will Travel is a genre-bending mash up of sound, combining explosive vocals and lush melodies with dirty, gritty beats, noise, delicate drones and fragile landscapes. In between experimental art pop / virtuosic extended voice / noise / participatory performance, the project appropriates digital aesthetics and sensibilities within the irregular and imperfect world of the human voice and analog instruments.

It is an intimate portrait on a rich bed of chaos and noise, with an instrumentarium composed of lo-fi electronics, baby synthesizers, toys and toy instruments, found objects, an autoharp, vintage keyboards, and vocal stylings that span pop music to experimental voice to belcanto singing.

Stephanie Pan is a vocalist, performance artist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist. At the root of her work is the notion of pure communication; finding a form of contact with the audience that is stripped of social expectations and distractions, that speaks beyond the conventional and social limitations and constructs of language. A mutating combination of theater/performance art/experimental music/improvisation/controlled chaos/pop music/classical music, her work is visceral, passionate and intense, and often explores the limits of the body and voice.

"It is a surprising musical journey with a singer who has an unmistakable style of her own. "
Paul Van de Gehuchte -
"The plunge is deep but the fact that she blends so many different aspects is really inspiring. Put this beautiful album close to AGF, Tujiko Noriko, 4AD projects, Malka Spigel and many other inspiring women."
Hubert Heathertoes - Felthat Reviews
"...she delivers an extraordinary album in the field of electronic music and vocal art, which is also fitting for Artrock and Artpop fans."
