Igor Amokian

Profile:
Welcome to the electronic music world of circuit bender, producer Igor Amokian. Whether he is taking you on a musical trip of bizarre noise or blasting the audience with his distorted beats, no two shows are ever the same. How could they be, he mostly uses circuit bent instruments and toys that are for the most part very random and unpredictable. Igor Amokian has been recording, releasing music and performing live for several years now, either solo or with various groups Amokian brings his unique sounds to the party and studio. Igor performs regularly with Wire Here w/ wife Karen, Skyline Electric, Machine Circuit & 3RD(i)Flying Objekt along with other occasional sit-ins here and there. Igor Amokian’s discography includes an incredible collection of custom made CD’s, appearances on various compilations, splits and collaborations, vinyl on labels like: Timelapse Label, Dap Station, No Skinny Jeans, Zypher Un Label & MXN Dist. to name a few. Blending elements of Dub, Breakcore, Hip-Hop, 8-bit to avant-garde. Igor's sounds are everything but regular or constant, always changing and blending whether it's an experimental show at a local art gallery, a blistering noise festival or some left-field, busted beat hip hop show and everything in between. Igor Amokian has been using a mix of circuit bent devices acquired from some of the world's best circuit benders along with some his own creations and some other odd vintage electronic gear i.e record players, old drum machines and keyboards. When Igor is not recording music or performing he is buying, selling and making bent instruments and even has had a few of his works on display at local galleries and exhibits like Soundwalk in Long Beach and Soundwaves Heal Cancer in L.A.
