Tralala Blip are unlike any other electronic outfit you’ve ever heard or seen. At the core is the contribution of the three members with intellectual disabilities. And contribute they do, this isn’t a patronizing or token set up. It’s powerful and joyous self-expression from people whose voices we don’t often hear.

The guiding light of Tralala Blip is Randolf Reimann, former frontman for 80s hardcore band Massappeal. Continuing to be musically active, in 2007 he was sharing his love of electronica by running workshops for differently abled young people in Lismore. The workshops ended, but the keenest participants wanted to continue making music. They formed a band and Tralala Blip was born.
