Debut Single "The Duel" from upcoming Bravo Victor EP released
Bravo Victor is a Newcastle based Bass and Voice Duo. Its members comprise of Bassist Jonathon Burgess and vocalist Sophie Aked. Both musicians have a very different approach to writing and listing to music, which stems from their different musical backgrounds; Jono’s in Jazz and Sophie’s in Classical and pop music. Bravo Victor’s sound could be described as a ‘melting pot’ of these genres’ harmonic language and performance practices.

Featuring a distortion circuit where the amount and type of saturation is intricately linked to the input signal level, the TWA DM-02 Dynamorph™ creates multi-layered, highly complex waveforms that “morph” your instrument’s harmonic structure in bizarre yet decidedly musical ways. Add to this an envelope-detection circuit that controls distortion events via playing dynamics, and you have the extremely powerful tool for musical expression that is Dynamorph™.
The DM-02 can create an almost limitless variety of distortion & filtering effects, from mild drive to “starved-voltage” fuzz to massive, swept filter synth pads. The degree of any of these effects is determined by the playing dynamics of the user, making Dynamorph™ a truly personal experience.
