Welcome to the online home of Thomas Bey William Bailey, psycho-acoustic sound artist, researcher and writer on saturation culture. Working with a number of different communications media, TBWB's body of work investigates and interrogates notions of utopia, anthropocentrism, and "the extreme"; refusing to reject any unpopular cultural manifestation as invalid until its more nuanced aspects have been brought to light.

A restlessly 'transitional' and uncategorizable artist, TBWB has performed, recorded, and taught in several distinct global regions, sharing with others the joys of chaos and of the valuation of creative process over end product.
