Qui Art was formed in February of 2008 by three noise musicians for the RPM Challenge. Each member brought a unique and different perspective to approaching noise and music in general. Utilizing what scant resources they had at the time, the album "F" was completed and released by the end of the month. This album featured select portions of free-form noise mixed with outragous "butt-rock" songs here and there. Despite the low fidelity and awkwardness, many fans consider this release to be one of their favorites.
Later on that year the three members decided that they wished to continue with their free-form noise experiments. 2008 saw the first full and uncut recording from Qui Art entitled "SIN", which clocked in at just under forty minutes in length. Qui Art then teamed up with local dark ambient artist Hellequin for a full remix and remaster of SIN. This marked the first of many future collaborations between Qui Art and Hellequin, making the dark ambient composer a secret "fourth member" of the band.
Personal tragedy struck the band members soon after including a train accident that took both legs of a mutual friend of the band. Qui Art decided that a live performance was overdue and joined up to play a benefit show that unfortunately never happened due to police interference. In 2009 Qui Art played a few shows and their use of power tools and unconventional instruments saw them banned from a venue in their hometown of Fort Collins, Colorado. Not withstanding this small setback Qui Art then decided to set their sights on the already strong Denver noise scene. 2010 Marked performances at various underground and aboveground venues in the Denver area in collaboration with Backwards Records HQ.
Just before their performance at the 2010 Trasistor Electronic Festival Qui Art signed a deal with Siatris Records becoming the first band to officially join the new label.
Qui Art is a band that has ridden the waves of chaos both musically and personally and is still around to tell the story. This makes their addition to Siatris Records more than fitting. For if the noise wasn't set free, it just wouldn't make any sense.
