SPENCER BREWER & DICK BILLUPS
Spencer Brewer is a DSE (Dangerously Serial Entrepreneur) who creates ‘High Whimsey’ - fantastical pieces of assemblage sculptures out of vintage or unusual objects as well as being a composer, pianist, artist, piano technician and producer. He has produced and engineered hundreds of records while working on over 20,000 pianos and touring as a contemporary concert pianist.
Dick Billups has been a student of electricity, engineering and taking things apart to see how they worked his whole life. His title through many of his electrical incarnations was "Electro Engineering Production Technician". Around 1969 his dad put on a Halloween show which had a talking pumpkin, a theremin with colored lights, a tesla coil and a robot at the door giving out candy. This was way ahead of it's time and Dick was hooked for life. Nicola Tesla was a hero to his dad and himself, thus creating Tesla Man helped fulfill a connection to his Dad, his passion and creativity.
