Working with a number of different communications media, TBWB aims to construct a body of work that interrogates notions of utopia, anthropocentrism, and “the extreme,” while refusing to reject any unpopular cultural manifestation as invalid until its more nuanced aspects have been brought to light. An admitted autodidact, TBWB draws upon the work of a diverse body of 20th and 21st century thinkers to aid him in a personal quest for ‘serious playfulness’: Johan Huizinga, John Gray, Friedrich Kittler, Paul Virilio, Gilles Deleuze, Gregory Bateson, and numerous others all contribute to TBWB’s jargon-free, non-specialist writings on creative life.
As a sound enthusiast, he takes his cues from composers such as Iannis Xenakis and the new contingent of computer-aided ‘glitch’ artists: those with no apparent fear of using the full spectrum of audible sound to produce rapturous or ecstatic moments of deep personal inquiry.
As of June 2011, TBWB is researcher in residence at The Sound Archive Of Experimental Music And Sound Art in Murcia, Spain.
