Bubblegum Octopus is the New Jersey based frantic, experimental electronic solo project of vocalist, composer, sequencer, and instrumentalist Matthew “m@ the c@” Morden.
The project began in 2005 after the release of the c@ album copy.
The project blends use of hardware, software, vocals, and instruments to create a hybrid of picopop, synth-pop, breakcore, electro-punk, digigrind, chiptune, noise, synth-funk, bemani style dance music, and whatever else comes up.
The project has released two full length albums, three splits (with Scissor Shock, yatagarasu, and Dental Work), and a free compilation album of b-sides and rarities from the first 5 years of the project’s existence.
m@ the c@ has also maintained a fairly regular touring schedule for the project since 2009, playing with all styles of music in all kinds of venues.
