Fox is a name applied to any of roughly 27 species of small to medium-sized canids, with sharp features and a bushy tail or "brush". The presence of fox-like carnivores all over the globe has led to their appearance in the popular culture and folklore of many nations, tribes, and other cultural groups.
Hands are the two intricate, prehensile, multi-fingered body parts normally located at the end of each arm of a human or other primate. They are the chief organs for physically manipulating the environment, using anywhere from the roughest motor skills (wielding a club) to the finest (threading a needle), and since the fingertips contain some of the densest areas of nerve endings on the human body, they are also the richest source of tactile feedback so that sense of touch is intimately associated with human hands. Like other paired organs (eyes, ears, legs), each hand is dominantly controlled by the opposing brain hemisphere, and thus handedness, or preferred hand choice for single-handed activities such as writing with a pen, reflects a significant individual trait.
With those definitions fused into his mind's eye, Fox Hands is the experimental noise art musings of Seamonster's Adrian Todd Webb. Seeking to blur the line between sound collage and pop, Fox Hands strives to create music that causes the listener to ask "What IS that sound?" while at the same time giving them the urge to jump and dance to the songs' Casio-induced tribal beat.
