Fusing the organic with the electronic, Dr. Bones (Ruben Dax) is known for creating absorbing soundscapes and intricate rhythms that are both haunting and euphoric. Based in Brooklyn, NY, Dr. Bones scavenges sounds from everyday life, crafts his own acoustic and electronic instruments, and designs custom software, all of which he combines to form his signature sound. In performances, he loops and layers his music live to engage and enthrall audiences.
His new album, which oscillates between lush sound-collage and downtempo hip-hop beats, will be released in early 2018. It follows the release of two solo EPs, Malleus and Incus, as well as a collaborative project with vocalist Sarah Glass called Treehouse.
