INFO: Pattern is Movement is an American indie rock band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and established in 2001. The group's music often features repeating patterns that show their influence from minimalism. They have been categorized by some reviewers as a math rock group, and compared to groups such as Don Caballero, Sunny Day Real Estate, and Pinback. All of the group's members have a background in classical music.
In 2006, producer/engineer Scott Solter (who has worked with John Vanderslice and the Mountain Goats) remixed the 2005 album Stowaway, which he had also recorded. This remix was considered unique due to its exclusivity to analog processes--Solter is credited on the album with "machines, razors, tape."
As of 2008, Pattern is Movement are performing as a two-piece. The band are due to emerge with a new album documenting the lineup in the spring of 2008, also recorded with Solter.
