"Origamibiro is a collaboration between myself and musicians, performers and producers Tom Hill and Andy Tytherleigh. Tom and I have a long history of collaboration through av_dv [Jim Boxall/Jon Gillie], Wauvenfold [Noel Murphy/Tom Hill] and Penfold Plum [Tom Hill]. After creating the first Origamibiro album 'Cracked Mirrors and Stopped Clocks', Tom wanted to find unorthodox ways to produce intimate live music based on generated loops without the audience barrier of laptop screens. Tom's music had a high level of emotional intensity that I felt a real affinity with and wanted to replicate through my visuals. I also wanted to further explore our live setup and find ways to show what we are doing and how we are doing it, as we are doing it. Early on in this process we enlisted the multi instrumentalist skills of Andy Tytherleigh. Andy immediately multiplied layers of melody and atmosphere in the set to create a wider and more beautiful sound."
"The reason for creating the "gameboyzz orchestra" was the total lack of any artistic initiatives and activities connected with the cult GameBoy console. The GameBoy console is an 8-bit handheld computer. Its unusually weak (archaic) technical parameters were a challenge and became the reason for creating the "gameboyzz orchestra."We are not an orthodox group and we utilize the latest technologies along with the retro ones used by musicians associated in the MICROMUSIC society whose key word is "low-tech music for high-tech people"-www.micromusic.net. The employed software is written specifically for the GameBoy console [trackers, sequencers, drum machines, etc.; sounds generated live and games]. The sound is accompanied by video projections, lights, smoke, etc."
