To Rue, the appeal of working with an instrument that is also a common tool is clear:  “The saw is a very physical instrument, immediate and pure… Some people hear my saw playing as feedback, animal cries, voices. The other day at the airport someone asked me, ‘What’s in the case?’ So I told them, ‘It’s an acoustic theremin.’ Saws have a wonderful ambiguity. They are readymade instruments. How many instruments help you build a house?” 

It’s important to Gryphon Rue to “keep the human hand in electronic music,” and the dynamic between the human hand and the technological means of making are essential to Perpetual Screw


Gryphon Rue (b. New York, NY) is an artist, composer, and musician. A crazy quilt derived from field recordings, custom synthesizers, singing saw, and harmonium, Rue’s music sweeps across forms of minimalism and elastic dance. Rue’s latest album is A Spirit Appears to a Pair of Lovers (Not Not Fun). His program Earmark on Montez Press Radio features emerging and established composers and sound artists. Since 2020 Rue’s performances have spanned international venues such as Fondazione ICA Milano, Hauser & Wirth, de Young Museum, Vector Hack Festival, Lafayette Electronic Arts Festival, Roulette Mixology festival, New Media Art & Sound Summit, Experimental Arts Intermedia, Microscope Gallery, Fridman Gallery, Qubit, No Moon, and Nowadays.
