building_01Bleephaus started in October 2013 as a one-off get-together for people who wanted to try their hand at building handmade electronic noise boxes and making a horrible noise together. For the event, a synth kit was made available that people could build. The results were then plugged into a PA and an impromptu noise jam concluded the evening.

Bleephaus then staged another event for National Drone Day in May 2014, running a 12 hour session combining live performances, an ‘open desk’ session for people wanting to play live or experiment, and more electronics workshops. A second synth kit was created, and people of all ages came together to make the kits and then make some noise!

From Summer 2014, Bleephaus hopes to be running events on a more regular basis, combining workshops, show & tell sessions, open desk opportunities for new performers, and headline shows from some of the most innovative performers in the electronic music scene. There will be more DIY synth kits designed in the coming months, with a plan to make the range available via mail order.

“Lee has exceptional flair and creativity, pushing the boundaries to produce some amazingly innovative work. He is passionate about what he does, At Bleephaus he was attentive and instructive (especially with those of us who had never done this sort of thing before).”
