Bottlesmoker is a music project by Anggung Suherman (Angkuy) and Ryan Nobie Adzani, from
Bandung, Indonesia. In 2005, this duo has been working on experimental music in area of
electronic pop – indietronic instrumental, that was still a rare thing to do in Indonesia circa 2000s.
Bottlesmoker has been doing lots of experiment in the songs making using toy musical
instrument and custom equipment, so the sounds that produced were so unique with a hint of a
pop music taste that is so catchy, and unique at the same time.
Bottlesmoker produces self made instrument with a bending circuit process. Angkuy and Nobie
love toy musical instruments such as Glockenspiel, Hand Bell, Melodica, and any toys that
produces any sounds like Toy Phones, Radio, Nintendo DS.
Angkuy and Nobie also capable to produce and combine different sounds from different instrument as a harmony. Beside that, Bottlesmoker too create a custom music instrument such as Noise Box, Theremin, 8 Step Sequencer, and those facts make Bottlesmoker produce such a characterized sounds that no other musicians have.
