The Scoring Duo of Bret Higgins and Jamie Ruben
Described by someone (us) as one of the most exciting new musical endeavors of the 2020’s (for us), Bret Higgins of Great Lake Swimmers fame and composer Jamie Ruben of Borderline Anonymity (the thing, not a band) have teamed up to create progressive, visually inspired adventures in sound.
Having occasionally worked together for the past decade, Jamie and Bret began the collaboration that would evolve into their ‘Just Mammals’ partnership while co-scoring two short films in 2020. They immediately felt they were onto something new with the power electrovulate their music and careers. Though electrovulate isn’t a word, their music is indeed music.
Their partnership involves the melting of crisp live recorded performances with digital synthesis and creative sound manipulation/design.
