BILL T MILLER, a chameleon of sonic exploration, is a multi-instrumentalist musician, composer, recording engineer, producer, filmmaker, photographer, artist, instrument builder and cat lover. From toy piano at two years old to starting a “band” with tennis racket guitar and trash can drums in the 60s to becoming a professional recording engineer / producer / live sound tech after graduating from College for the Recording Arts in San Francisco in 1976, his paths are always unfolding and looping. At recording college he took synthesizer courses with ARP 2600 and Emu synths and then worked (as live sound and recording engineer) in California until 1980. Eventually ending up in Boston working as a freelance recording engineer and live sound engineer and then starting his own Headroom Recording Studios. While much of his “professional career” was devoted to recording and photographing OTHER artists, he was always working on his own weirdo music bands in the shadows. Some of these adventures include Out of Band Experience (OBE) (with media barrage sampling and field recordings), Kings Of Feedback (bass, guitar, samples), Drum Army (percussion), Kings Of Slack (SubGenius Doktor), Zonkulator (mutated test equipment), and Orgy Of Noise (circuit bent toys, electro acoustic instruments, synthesizers) with over 20 full album releases on his own DIY labels (Immortal, ExtraTerrestrial, Burn This.) All available as FREE MP3s since 1998.

BTM’s quest has looped back around to a nostalgic look forward incorporating ALL of the past adventures while moving sideways in time in to an unknown future think void. Living in Boston for over 33 years and giving every moment to this insatiable desire to CREATE and SHARE is his true path.

This Cafe Fixe stereophonic improv performance will feature SYSTEM BTM MODULAR SYNTHESIZER and custom BTM Acoustic Laptop Artbox and a special guest for the finale improv.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Brookline Commission for the Arts and the Boston Cultural Council, both local agencies which are funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. The Boston Cultural Council is administrated by the Mayor’s Office of Arts + Culture.
