Robert Galbraith (aka Raab Codec) and Elizabeth Virosa (also of PATTERN BEHAVIOR) create haunted synth-experimental electronics, blending ominous cinematic ambience and darkly moving harmonies with intermittent but powerful modular squelches and lumbering beats. With five releases on Component Recordings and two on France’s M-tronic Label, they are vital to the burgeoning Providence electronic scene.

The post-industrial drone and beat heavy duo Snowsbeasts began as an experimental modular synth side project of Raab Codec (Robert Galbraith) composed during the harsh and blizzard riddled winter of 2014 in the Northeast.

During the winters that followed, Elizabeth Virosa (Elizabeth Galbraith) contributed further to the project by writing tracks and adding ethereal vocals, as the act began to become more involved in the Providence electronic music scene.

They have performed with live with Alessandro Cortini, Richard Devine, Bestial Mouths, Mark Hosler (Negativland), Statiqbloom, Ariadne, Void Vision and more.

Recently they have released a second album –-X- – in an ongoing fruitful collaboration with Dead Voices on Air.
