The Cerebral City

In mid-2014, American director and film whiz John Moody invited me to create a score for The Cerebral City, a ten minute documentary short film exploring the changing and fascinating cityscape of Melbourne. It was an absolute pleasure to create and adapt sounds for such a well directed and beautifully shot film, and I’m stoked to see the release.

The Cerebral City is out now, take a look on vimeo below!

Selections and reflections

So I really should update the posts more on here! All the other information is updated here… but the front page, well that would make too much sense.

The last couple of months have been busy with Slowcation happenings, with launch shows being enjoyable, receiving solid airplay including playlisting/charting with 4ZZZ and RTR, and some nice press rolling out, including:

Sonic Masala: “…on Slowcation there is a innate confidence in his efforts to splice and reorder sonic structures entwined with a subversive joy in overlaying bucolic whimsy and happenstance over synthetic currents that sets this above and beyond what he has put to tape in the past.”

Cyclic Defrost: “Tuttle is interested in the mechanical. In repetitive rhythmic electronics, but also in waves of sound, in attack and decay. It’s seduction and experimentation hand in hand, It’s a collage of overlay, not sharp edits and Slowcation is a fascinating, beguiling boundary pushing sensory experience.”

TheMusic: “With washed-out sonic hums, episodes of spritely electronic melodies and even a banjo that gracefully alludes to Deep South bluesy folk without sticking out like the sore-thumb instrument it can often be, the Brisbane muso has created a lovely, wandering guide for contemplation.”

4ZZZ: “Fans can certainly predict the dreamy timbres we have all come to know and love from Tuttle, with hyper-tonality and euphamdoria becoming his trademark as an artist.”

Cyclic Defrost also interviewed me about ten influential records in their Cyclic Selects section, check out the interview if you’re up for a bit of a longer read.

 

In show news, I’m playing my first Gold Coast show since the Anonymeye days at The Walls in Miami on 21 June for their Banana Sunday series… looking forward to it! More info on that here. Looking to make it over to Adelaide in August for a few shows, and we’ll see what else comes up too!
