Tom Bugs - BugBrand Modular
Hilary Jeffery - tromboscillator
Legendary analogue electronic instrument inventor Tom Bugs comes over from Bristol with his personal BugBrand Modular setup for a discussion and performance. Having moved from musical performance, through lofi electronic machines (eg. Weevils!), the last few years have been focused on developing the BugModular system, of which there are now 30+ setups spread around the globe. The particular areas of interest for his development have been performative flow, rhythmics and portability - he has been cutting a niche furrow, allowing the machine grooves to flourish.
Coming from a musical background in playing / recording, since officially starting BugBrand in April 2005 I have been pretty much subsumed by working with analogue electronic circuitry. My work work comes from a self-taught perspective of creative engineering - reveling in the meeting of art and science, where the inner workings of analogue circuits open up to present new sonic worlds.
