At the age of five, Emileigh Rohn began taking piano lessons from her church organist, Mildred Benson, and eventually began singing solos in church. By the age of 13 she received a Casiotone keyboard and began experimenting with electronic music. In her final year of high school she joined an experimental/industrial performance art group called Inter Animi.
In the fall of 1997, while studying molecular biology in Detroit, Rohn joined Calvin P. Simmons in his project Dragon Tears Descending (DTD) as a keyboardist doing performances and supporting other bands. Rohn then left DTD and formed her own project Electrophoretic Transfer in 1998.
Chiasm began in 1998 when Rohn began to entirely produce her own music with her first demo CD named "Embryonic" completed in October. Her song "Bouncing Baby Clones" was featured on a Detroit Electronica compilation CD, D[elEcTROnIc]T, in the spring of 1999. By March 2001, Rohn released her debut album, Disorder on COP International.
Following Disorder, the track "Isolated" was released on the PC Game, "Vampire-The Masqurerade-Bloodlines" as well as used in an episode of the CBS series "Navy:NCIS" in 2003 coinciding with the release of the remix album with labelmate Threat Level 5 titled "Divided We Fall: The Remix Collection". The second full-length solo album, "Relapse" was released in 2005, also on COP.
Chiasm released a virtual single, "Prefrontal EP", exclusively on iTunes in 2006 through COP International. Her new full-length album, titled "REFORM", was released in September 2008! "REFORM" CDs are now available! Be sure to check out the new Facebook page, and keep in touch with her on Myspace where new remixes and random older tracks are also posted for streaming!
