Bob Bellerue is a noise composer, experimental musician, and creative technician based in Brooklyn NY. Over the last 20+ 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. Bob's work utilizes custom electronics and programming, incorporating feedback, prepared field recordings, de-musicalized instruments, and found oscillators. 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). Bob's work has been presented at the Yogyakarta Gamelan Festival, Centre de Cultura Contemporanea de Barcelona, New Genre Festival, CEAIT Festival, Issue Project Room, Diapason Sound Gallery, Roulette, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver Noise Festival, Olympia Experimental Music Festival, PDX Noise Festival, Radio Epsilonia (Paris), WFMU, WKCR, WNYC, KFJC, KXLU, East Village Radio, Stanford University, The New School , UCSD, and UCLA. His discography includes dozens of releases on Anarchymoon Recordings, Zelphabet, Banned Productions, P-Tapes, RRR Records, Static Aktion, EMR, Iatrogenesis, Bastardised, Peyote Tapes, Together Tapes, Breathmint, Feathering Pines, Baked Tapes, Abandon Ship, 3rd Sex, and Important Records. He curates and produces noise and experimental music events on a regular basis, including the Ende Tymes Festival of Noise and Experimental Liberation. He was formerly based in Los Angeles, where he ran the sub-garde experimental music/performance space the Il Corral, and curated the Beyond Music series and festival. As a theater technician, he has designed lights and sound for dozens of theater and dance performances. Bob lives in Bushwick NY and runs the boutique noise labels Anarchymoon Recordings and Sleepy Hollow Editions. Website:

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."
