Anonymeye is the music pseudonym of Andrew Tuttle.
He’ll be bringing his blend of electronic and acoustic music to Crossbows, a four-day music festival, that’s happening this week. Tuttle will play as part of Concentric Circuits, Crossbow’s electronic artist program curated by Lawrence English.
“The night I’m playing I’m really looking forward to Dot.ay who is Alex Yabsley, originally from Brisbane and now living Melbourne, who is coming back for this so that will be great. I’m also playing with Hunz who I’ve always enjoyed seeing as well,” Tuttle says.
“It looks to have heaps of interesting things and be really diverse. The whole Concentric Circuits line-up is really great and I’m looking forward to seeing everything.”
Born and raised in Brisbane, Tuttle looks to the city’s nature for inspiration. “In a way I suppose other music and other art I hear and see influence what I do,” he says. “I think the natural surrounds of Brisbane being a city that’s kind of mid-sized, but with a lot of nature and beaches, also does as well. The idea of just wanting to keep things kind of interesting and placid, if that makes some sense.”
The result is what Tuttle describes as a synthesis between acoustic and electronic music that utilises acoustic guitar, laptop, synthesizers, banjos, vocals, effects units and other bits and bobs.
Looking to revamp his live show, Tuttle is working on new recordings he says could possibly end up being turned into a future album.
“What I’m going to be working on for this show is hopefully some new ideas; kind of combining what I’ve been doing lately, which is kind of a melding and synthesis of synthesizer, guitar and banjo sounds. There will be a few dreamy elements in there, a few song elements, and some improvisations.”
Anonymeye plays Crossbows, which takes part across several venues including the Queensland Conservatorium May 10-13. griffith.edu.au/crossbows
