About Andrew Tuttle:
* Andrew Tuttle, based in Brisbane, Australia; creates an instrumental sonic convergence of improvisation and composition; and electronic and acoustic tones.

A curious exploration of the power of public space, urban design, and finding yourself in a city.
In this documentary, a young Australian woman discovers Melbourne’s quirky public spaces through the narration of a designer who helped transform them from a dying wasteland into vibrant places for people.
Shot in 2014 with the generosity of my new ‘mates' and city designers, it reflects my own sense of self-discovery when I first wandered Melbourne’s laneways. Prior to this I’d become sort of disillusioned in my own relationship with filmmaking, but Melbourne inspired me to chase that sweet spot between information and emotion by combining an urban design tour with a "sense of place" meditation.
I hope that people who watch this get excited about creating cities that are dynamic, creative and inviting to anyone. Please share with people that you think need to see it!

Brisbane artist Andrew Tuttle has sort to ponder the curious provocation. Taking his unique blend of acoustic and electronic elements as a starting point, Tuttle has devised an approach to the notion of Fantasy League loosely based upon the idea of the creation of an album as a utopian fantasy environment.
This environment sets social interaction against total isolation. It sets self reflexivity against self confidence, it promises to complete you, as you complete it. But at what point is the fantasy to be broken? At what point must the music fall away from the promise of becoming and into the concrete nature of being? In Fantasy League, your position is only ever as certain as your desires. Music and self are in unison, but never settled or steady.
* Sonic Masala: Fantasy League aims to capture the listener in a phantasmagoria that calms and enraptures, beguiles and bewitches.
* Sound Doctrine: "Whorls of guitar are overcome by droning rhythms, to be overtaken by thundering organs or fluttering electronic blips."
* The Formant: "Tuttle’s synthetic folk sees a lazy-summer night’s banjo bounce over the subtly orchestrated drones and feedback"
