2016-10 – Getting ready to leave Providence and make the move to Pittsburgh, where we've managed to buy an awesome old house for next to nothing. Lots of work ahead but its going to be fantastic!
2016-03 – Just finished a tour to Lubbock, TX and back on late Feb/early March 2016. 4136 miles of driving, 9 performances and 2 hot-spring vacation days in NM. Hours of documentation videos shot - you'll be seeing some of them here soon.
Arvid Tomayko (aka Arvid Tomayko-Peters) is a Providence based experimental musician, composer and multimedia artist interested in live improvised electronic music performance, data/process driven composition, and the intersection of those two worlds. He builds and performs with extended digital instruments, including the TOOB - a wireless hyper-trumpet and makes live and pre-composed video work. Arvid holds a BA in Computer Music and Multimedia and Geology from Brown University and is head of research and development at Your Heaven where he designs, builds and codes for audio electronics that make acoustic instruments sound really good when amplified or recorded.
