Tell us about yourself 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 live show and studio. Igor Amokian’s discography includes an incredible collection of custom made CD’s, appearances on various compilations, splits, collaborations & even some vinyl releases on labels like: Timelapse Label, Minimalizm, Amp-Rec, IFAR, No Skinny Jeans, Bonding Tapes, digdugDIY, Zypher Un Label & MXN Dist. to name a few. 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 mangled beats sitting in with Skyline Electric. 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, tape 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, Soundwaves Heal Cancer in L.A., The Last Book Store and Alchemy of Waste at Artshare in Downtown L.A You can see countless videos of circuit bent instrument demos, live performances and more on his Bentertainment Channel: http://www.youtube.com/amokian
