Excepter is an american improvisatory electronic rock group. A destruction of the division between performance and programming. An electric city, a test of endurance and entrancement. Mystic rips in liminality.
Excepter is a performance group devoted to the destruction of boundaries between the psychic friends network and reality television.
Formed in NYC 2002, Excepter have over 23 recordings released on various labels: Fusetron; Load; 5RC; Paw Tracks; RVNG. A group mind experience, Excepter brought to bear upon the world of electronic dance music the improvisational discipline of founder John Fell Ryan’s membership in The No-Neck Blues Band.

Slowly shifting in line-ups and styles over the years, Excepter always produces its core sound of multiple voices, winds and percussion echoing over free-form machine rhythms and synthesizer.
With the passing of Excepter vocalist and drummer Clare Amory in February 2011, surviving members spread to different cities across the States.
