About Arvid

Arvid Tomayko (technically "Arvid Tomayko-Peters", but it's a bit ungainly to use all the time) is a Providence based experimental musician, composer and multimedia artist interested in live improvised electronic music performance, data or process driven composition, and the intersection of those two worlds. He builds and performs with extended digital instruments, including the TOOB - a wireless hyper-trumpet and makes live and pre-composed video pieces. Arvid holds a BA in Computer Music and Multimedia and Geology from Brown University. He currently works in audio product development at Your Heaven where he designs, builds and codes for audio electronics that make acoustic instruments sound really good when amplified or recorded.
