Biography

Originally started out as a solo music project by Tom Hill in 2007 with the release of Cracked Mirrors and Stopped Clocks, Origamibiro has since become a live audio-visual collective comprised of fellow musician Andy Tytherleigh and video artist, Jim Boxall - aka The Joy of Box. The trio employ multiple instruments, hi and lo-fi technologies and an array of unorthodox objects and mixed media, including guitars, typewriters, infra red cameras, double bass, ukulele and bowed electric guitar.

Formerly one half of the electronica duo, Wauvenfold (Wichita Records), with Noel Murphy (aka Visual Display Unit / Bury & Disinter) Tom has released 3 albums and 2 EPs under a variety of aliases, gaining a reputation among the likes of Björk, John Peel, the BBC and the Super Furry Animals.

Reviews:

“What Origamibiro & The Joy of Box have on stage together is something totally organic. Utilising all manner of electronic technology and combining it with the flick of a dog eared book or the heavy fingered tap on an old typewriter they achieve a highly emotive and immensely satisfying experience on all levels” - Oh Francis Magazine

“Straddling the middle ground somewhere between electronic and acoustic, [Origamibiro} have a high level of intimacy and an organic quality that is contrasted and often mixed with digitally created tones and broken electronic sounds. At times the contrast is distinct but at others they compliment each other beautifully, the warmth and fragility of the guitar melodies amplified by just the right amount of discrete glitchy electronic effects.” - igloomag.com
