International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Mitchell Akiyama and Tony Boggs have been coaxing haunting music from haunted machines for over fifteen years. Between 2003-05 the duo released three albums on Akiyama’s Intr.version Records in quick succession, a series of works that folded guitars, violins, drum machines, and field recordings into evocative and evolving suites. Désormais then went fallow for some years, which isn’t to say that Akiyama or Boggs drifted too far away from sound. Akiyama completed a PhD in communications, focusing on sound recording in the field and composed scores for several films and installations. Boggs recently founded the Kikimora Tapes label, whose output has many swooning, including the taste-making 20 Jazz Funk Greats blog. The duo also found time to record a side project under the moniker, Letters Letters, for the venerable Type Records.

In resurrecting Désormais, Akiyama and Boggs are returning to their roots, welding rough and textured melodies to propulsive and fractal rhythms. Mutek, 2016 will be Désormais’s first live performance in ten years.
