From 2004-2013, Anonymeye was a nom de plume of Andrew Tuttle from Brisbane, Australia. Tuttle’s work as Anonymeye reconfigures various organic and mechanic musics within a sonic framework akin to an abstract musical Esperanto. Utilising electronic and acoustic instrumentation including acoustic guitar, signal processing, synthesisers, and effects units, Anonymeye straddles and blurs boundaries between improvisation and composition, experimentation and song-form, rural landscapes and urban constructions and melody and dissonance.
Since 2004, Anonymeye has released three albums, a half-dozen or so short-form and split releases, and appeared on a score of various artist compilations. In this time Anonymeye has performed on approximately one hundred concerts across Australia and on tours to Europe and New Zealand.
In early 2013 Andrew Tuttle retired the Anonymeye moniker, to prepare for future recording and touring under his own name. Check out andrewtuttle.com.au for more info.
