Minit is Jasmine Guffond and Torben Tilly, formed in Sydney in 1997. Drawing upon influences from experimental electronic, rock and avant-garde music, Minit aim to create a concordant relationship between a sound that holds emotive power and musicality and a sensitive 'microscopic' study of electro-acoustic phenomena.
They use electronic, digital, sampling and mixing technologies to manipulate recorded and 'found' sound and to transcend conventional instrumental approaches to composition. Their music is anything but sterile technological examination. Instead they are trying to bring an open-ended experimentalism into the architecture of song, and vice versa. From digitally deconstructed 'songs' to expanded electro-acoustic works, Minit explore abstract sound as much as traditional musical forms, striving to produce a music that exists uniquely inbetween.
