Ross Birdwise is a Vancouver-based musician, visual artist and curator. His music practice encompasses improvisation, vocals, noise and electronic music. His visual art practice encompasses photography and video. Recently he curated sound art shows for the Surrey Art Gallery, and completed a soundtrack to a film unreleased full length album that attempts to warp the listener’s perceptions of space and time.

Whip of the UFO:
“it’s like being passed out in the gutter at 5 am and having the street
cleaner drive over your face” Geoff Berner
“Whip of the UFO violently inserted our brains into the turbine of a
futuristic lawn mower with giant machine gun turrets.” Discorder
Andrew Scott and usually Jon Scofield are Whip of the UFO.
Whip of the UFO is named after Andrew’s great grandfather, Andrew Hicks,
Whip of the United Farmers of Ontario, 1919-1923.
