This trio has been making crazy sounds together since early 2013 when Benjamin
met Phil during a course offered at PCC. Phil and Zak have been making music together
under the name Sceptre Fretpen for a handful of years. Benjamin, under the name Rigel and the Devices, comes from a drumming background, and adds the rhythmic element to Polemic Contriver's ambient and loop based sounds provided by both Zak and Phil.
