Transistor formed in 2009 when Franck Vigroux was performing in NYC where Ben Miller led several projects. Vigroux was in a creative transition suggesting a stripped down electro-industrial sound with the latter as lead singer. Miller had sung in many bands before but never solely as a lead singer. The new challenge was intriguing. Shows were set up with Vigroux’s sub-bass and extreme frequencies blowing more than one PA system. They struck up an overseas collaboration releasing a self-titled EP. While sporadically performing in NYC and Europe, Transistor returned to the studio for their full length LP Din of Eons released in 2013. All the while, French film- maker Gregory Robin had been shooting a documentary (Transistor, 2015) of the duo’s goings-on.
This year Vigroux and Miller present their newest work, The Horde.
