Jimmy Hughes is an artist and musician living in Jamaica Plain, MA. He performs improvised electronic music on an analog+ digital modular synthesizer as DINNERS. In his art, he focuses primarily on new interfaces for creating and hearing electronic sound. In performances as Dinners, Hughes often incorporates different sensors and circuits – light, sound, touch – that allow for more expressive (and sometimes unpredictable) sonic results from the synthesizer. Prior to performing as Dinners, Hughes was in the electronic pop duo, Turtle Ambulance. He currently plays keyboards in the Boston-based rock band, Huge Face. Jimmy has vinyl and cassette releases out on Whitehaus Family Record and has a new cassette due to be released on Moss Archive in April.
