Isn't Ours

For November's Second Sunday event at Pioneer Works, Mike Sheffield will be performing for Clocktower Radio under the guise of his solo project Isn't Ours. A musician and writer living in Brooklyn, Sheffield additionally plays in Heaven's Gate, Alan Watts, and Weed Hounds. He has described his Isn't Ours EP, White Floods, as an experimental, open-ended exploration of ambient sound. Isn't Ours's music consists of everything from techno, "dusty" house, and beautiful, succinct experimental sounds. In addition to performing music, Mike throws conceptual art events as She Was Freaks, and writes creative nonfiction, short stories, and poetry. He lives at the Silent Barn, an all-ages music venue and art space in Bushwick.
