Biography

Named after a child’s mispronunciation (or is that misconception) of music, Mewgatz make delicate yet damaging electronica. Based out of an abandoned electro graveyard in Bristol and armed with an arsenal of home-made instruments, from modified 80s Casios to keytars and kids toys, Mewgatz makes schizophrenic and chaotic yet beautifully subtle and fragile music.

The guerrilla art-form of circuit-bending involves taking an electronic noise making device and intentionally buggering about with its circuitry. Finding, and soldering in short-circuits which create new sounds that were never before thought possible or even desirable from the instrument.

With a background of training in traditional melody, Mewgatz was inspired by these unpredictable sounds and quickly started melding the harsh mechanical exteriors into weird and wonderful organic electronic monologues.

Paying homage to his fascination with original keyboard presets and demo songs, Mewgatz fuses glitching preset bossanova beats with delicate guitar chord progressions and tender untrained vocals. Schizophrenically remixing the likes of “Greensleves” and “Wake me up before you go go” until they’re bent out of all recognition into lo-fi electronic ballads drenched in raw, vulnerable emotion. A personal quest to find that fleeting moment where, in the void between human fragility and robotic malfunction, unpredictability and stability can collide.
