Tinkertoy is a Barcelona and Toronto based duo comprised of Andrew Wedman and Paul Shrimpton. Both Andrew and Paul came from classical music backgrounds to form Tinkertoy in 2000 -- a project that has since evolved into a unique style of washy, sometimes melodic techno. Tinkertoy’s music is about the discovery of beauty in sundry noise. Their sound palette is developed through an extensive process of sampling outdoor environments and natural instruments and remodeling those samples using their own programmed software. Tinkertoy’s sound is always based on experimentation, and they bring this approach to their live performances.

Currently inactive.
