Andrew Tuttle is an artist who for twelve years has been exploring the relationship between the electronic and the acoustic – primarily by marrying the worlds of laptop processing with that of banjo and acoustic guitar. He has played live with artists such as Matmos, Mike Cooper, and Blank Realm, and recently released the album ‘Fantasy League’ on the Room40 imprint, Someone Good.
Andrew discusses the inherent tension in his work and his relationship with his home city of Brisbane. In the second half, we hear an exclusive new recording from Andrew, titled ‘Transitory Adaptations’ – a mixtape of edited improvisations created while on the road in Europe, recorded in hotel rooms in Lausanne and Berlin and on a train from Berlin to Basel in April 2016.
