Belly Full Of Stars is the electronic sound project of Nashville based musician/recordist/audio editor Kim Rueger. She often blends synths and processed field recordings with mechanical elements and repurposed objects and has a particular interest in location/time related works.

Sounds in the brokendatapool mainly originate from a round of successive mishaps that occurred in autumn 2016: pieces of a synth improvisation recorded through a lightning-zapped controller and audio interface, errantly bit-reduced electric piano lines, EM pickup recordings of a drive reading a blistered cd, out-of-phase hits and rhythms played on a sound sculpture made from dismantled office chair parts.

Further glitching/processing/editing/arranging done in the now defunct Tuareg 2 software and Cakewalk Sonar.

The artwork is from a series of ICM digital photographs taken in autumn 2016

'The bubbling glow is diffuse and hazy, and sits atop a backdrop that is gently euphoric, swathes of electronics that paint a starlit sky, celestial bodies beaming and filling us with a warmth that is lovely.' - Freq Mag

'...it is clearly showcasing that electronic music really doesn’t need to be cold and emotionless, but can actually be all about huggable warmth and kindhearted gentle kindness.' - Yeah I Know It Sucks

'...brokendatapool is ultimately a zone of comfort and repair.' - ATTN Mag
