Who's behind Polybonk?
Darren Ziesing and Thomas David are the humble founders of the online digital experimental electronic music store, Polybonk.
We use binary code through telecommunication systems that enables the remote manipulation of light by the user to instantaneously deliver mathematically compressed wave vibrations in exchange for the metaphorical representation of human effort.
The concept was first conceived in 2002, combining the super-nerd programming and web design skills of Tom with Darren's borderline obsessive musical passion for all things experimental, unusual and down right weird. Work began in earnest on the project at the end of 2006.
From then, Darren worked hard at sourcing, preparing and mastering terabytes of music for delivery to the unsuspecting masses. Meanwhile, Tom furiously designed and developed the online system. Leading a similar introverted hermit like existence, Tom lived only on nourishment from the occasional curry and the unusual assortment of music growing within the Polybonk catalogue.
