Brett Marshall Lefferts is an American electronic musician currently based in Prague. He began musical study as a classical flutist, later picked up guitar, and eventually found solace in gritty synths and low-fi beats.
Over the years Brett has been involved in a number of bands, notably as a founding member of the music/hardware-hacking/art collective Seed A.I. Their best known work consisted of reprogrammed vintage video game consoles accompanied by acoustic drums performed by Dan Gottesman.
One of Brett's most exciting collaborations was with Scott Daly of Arms & Legs. In Arms & Legs Brett infused a new degree of danceability and lust for life into Scott's hauntingly beautiful harmonies and powerful lyrics. They filled out their stage show with a bassist and two battling drummers, ultimately travelling together as far as China.
Brett's longest partnership was with Thom Uliasz and Justin Emerson in Burnkit2600, a rare electronic power trio. Burnkit2600 carved a niche for itself in the circuit-bending and chiptune underground by merging noise-music and freeform jams with electro-pop sensibilities. Additionally the band provided free information and tutorials to demystify their baffling instruments and encourage others to join in the fun.
