Tullis Rennie is a composer, electronic musician, improvising trombonist, and field recordist. Tullis’s varied career to date has touched upon many different conceptual approaches, examining the impact of listening with jazz musicians Matthew Bourne and Graham South on 2018’s vinyl-only release Muscle Memory, and investigating the hidden process of performance preparation with Manchester-based Vonnegut Collective on 2021’s 48 Hours (Moving Furniture Records). He’s a founder member of Barcelona-centred A/V collective Insectotròpics, and co-director of community-oriented arts organisation Walls On Walls. He is Senior Lecturer in Music at City, University of London.
Tullis’s most recent studio release is Fixed Freedoms, available on Accidental Jnr’s Room 2 – a series for Matthew Herbert’s label dedicated to electronic music outside the main thoroughfare of club tracks. His work has been presented at concerts and festivals across 20 countries, alongside UK national broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, NTS and ResonanceFM. His writing has been published in Organised Sound and Leonardo Music Journal. He is co-editor of Situated Listening: Attending to the Unheard, a book published by Routledge in 2025. He features on releases by Accidental Records, Accidental Jnr, Moving Furniture Records, Luminous label, ZeroWave and Efpi Records.
