Bob Bellerue

Bob Bellerue is a noise composer, experimental musician, and creative technician based in Brooklyn NY. Over the last 25 years he has been involved in a wide range of creative activities - homemade percussion ensembles, Balinese gamelan, dance/performance art sound scores, and installation art.

He is in the midst of long-term collaborations with the choreographer Wanda Z Gala, and gigs regularly as a solo artist, in KILT (with Raven Chacon and Sandor Finta), and in collaboration with some of the heavyweights of the universal experimental music scene (Z'EV, Telecult Powers, Francisco Meirino, and Circuit Wound among others).

Artist Statement: "my work is based in feedback circuits used for synthesis; recontextualized field recordings; texture/drone/nonmusical instruments (shanai, rebab, gambuh, chinese cymbals, hunting calls, junk metal, sheets of glass); and a performance presence best characterized as animist/animalistic. i attempt to harness the sounds within nature, without imposing a deterministic melodic/rhythmic structure."
