Noveller is the solo project of Los Angeles-based guitarist and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate. She has performed in Rhys Chatham’s Guitar Army, and as a member of Glenn Branca’s 100 guitar ensemble. Noveller has toured supporting Xiu Xiu, the Jesus Lizard, Man Forever, and Emeralds. Lipstate is currently working with Carla Bozulich on an improvised duo release for No Fun Productions.
In 2008, Lipstate performed as part of the Underground at the Abrons performance series at the Abrons Arts Center on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. That December, she played at the Un Son Par Là, Music of Today festival in Nîmes, France. In March 2009, she performed in the revival of Rhys Chatham and Karole Armitage’s “Drastic-Classicism” as part of the Think Punk! program at The Kitchen in NYC.
No Fun Productions released her debut LP Paint on the Shadows in April 2009. Following that release, Lipstate performed at No Fun Fest at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Her latest release Desert Fires is available on CD via Lipstate’s own imprint Saffron Recordings.
