Artist name: The Joy of Box

Synopsis/Description
Origamibiro is now a collective, consisting of two musicians and one video artist. To mark this event, the trio have just released their brand new video promo – QUAD TIME. Imagine music and video playing a game together. And telling stories at the same time. That’s what it’s like to experience a performance by audio-visual collective Origamibiro. The collaborative trio merge found objects, unorthodox contraptions, multi instrumentalism and persistence of vision to create an atmosphere both nostalgic and otherworldly. Together, musicians and producers Tom Hill and Andy Tytherleigh and video artist The Joy of Box make connections between seemingly unrelated elements and create a world that plays the scale of human emotions. With atmosphere oozing from their fingertips, it’s no wonder the Dublin Fringe Festival described Origamibiro as “undoubtedly the most original offering of the fringe calendar” This promo marks the first of a new series of av works to come out of the new Origamibiro stable- The BiroBox Workshops. Originally a Nottingham based audio-visual night run by Origamibiro, the Workshops has expanded to become a working space where biro can develop new ideas, experiments and working methods to play live.”

Biography
Origamibiro is a collaboration between video artist The Joy of Box and musicians, performers and producers Tom Hill and Andy Tytherleigh. Tom and Box have a long history of collaboration through av_dv, Wauvenfold and Penfold Plum. Tom wanted to find ways to produce intimate music based on live generated loops without the audience barrier of laptop screens. Box wanted to produce visuals that could utillise a whole range of different techniques and approaches that could explore emotion, narrative and spectacle through high and low end technology and audience understanding/expectation of what was happening in front of them. In the process of developing ideas and techniques, they enlisted the multi instrumentalist skills of Andy Tytherleigh. Origamibiro is essentially an organic project- its content continues to change and readapt as new ideas present themselves. They use unorthodox objects: torn paper and pencil shavings, photographs, books and typewriters. They also use live digital audio and video looping methods. Ultimately Origamibiro is three people’s attempt to find means of performing the music and visuals in an intimate, generative, idiosynchratic, fallible, transparent, beautiful and wholly collaborative way.
