Location: Maker's LoungeScattered Light is an acoustic/electronic musical duo that combines folkie acoustic guitar with suitcases full of circuit-bent goodness. Found sounds, DIY electronics, circuit-bent toys, and synth all layer together to weave a tapestry on which to lay modest guitar melodies. At times, Scattered Light breaks into a full-noise onslaught, and other times finds serenity in a landscape of sounds both mundane and surreal.

James Marks, Adam Marks
James' quest to make music with the least money outlay possible has led to a history of broken toys, circuit-bent alarm clocks, tape loops, and dumpstered guitars. While not searching for the magic hidden in the heart of every electronic beast, James presides over VGKids, a screen printing company geared towards bands and labels. Adam began his interest in various emerging forms of technology in suburban Detroit during the 1980s when color existed in two shades on the monitor. He works on experimental music and video, fights spam as a software engineer, and eats lots of take out with his girlfriend.
