Origamibiro is the pseudonym of musician and producer, Thomas Hill. Originally from Beckenham in Kent, Tom moved to Nottingham in 2000 where he still lives, writing music and producing soundtracks for film and animations.
Formerly one half of the electronica duo, Wauvenfold with Noel Murphy (aka Visual Display Unit / Bury & Disinter) Tom released material on Wichita Records and produced other works under his old solo alias – Penfold Plum (it is the name Penfold that gave birth to the title ‘Origami-Biro’).
His debut with Expanding Records, ‘Cracked Mirrors and Stopped Clocks’, saw Tom shift away from his beat driven method of synthetic sound-design to sculpt an album of interlacing classical guitar-part harmonies and textural samples – including the creaks of chairscand all the knocks, scrapes, bumps and other by-products that come with playing a wooden instrument.
