Cameron Deas is an experimental musician based in London. Currently working with electronics, he uses an integrated array of synthesis techniques that are triggered by, and in turn manipulate, external acoustic sound sources, in and out of conjunction with pure electronic sounds. Working in an entirely live environment, Deas creates a kind of real-time musique concrete, resulting in an abstract yet organic contemporary electronic music. Also known for his work as a guitarist, Deas’s debut LP for this electronic project, String Studies, is a suite that focuses on using the 12 string acoustic guitar as the sole sound source of this live musique concrete: a wooden frame to an electronic music. String Studies will be released this summer on Alter.
“...the notes of his 12 string acoustic are raw material for violent sculpture, torn apart and flung about separately by the manipulations of his modular synth, bouncing around the space in a hyper-kinetic match of sound squash.” The Wire, April 2014
