Cleptoclectics is Tom Smith – Cleptoclectics channels sonic detritus, plays various instruments, and extrapolates via granular synthesis to create dense, idiosyncratic music. Warm textures, a distinctive tonal range, and staggered rhythms develop into a subtle form of reverie.
Warbonds is the name Justin Tam hides behind when he makes music. Beginning in the uni break of 2010, Warbonds is an exploration of maximalism in music, combining dense and widely sourced samples with live electro-acoustic sounds and fuzzy beats. Through samples, Warbonds marries the sounds of musicians from different genres, disciplines and periods with each other, and improvises with the result.
