"Ellertronic" is a live electronic music group based in Durham, NC. The group was established in 2011 by Bonnie Pivacek (keyboards and vocals) and David Zielinski (electronic drumset). The group self-recorded and self-released an EP (E-O-T) in 2012. In addition to playing the keyboard, Bonnie manipulates the various Arduino noise generators that the group has developed. In addition to drumming, David also writes the sound generation software that powers the band in C++ utilizing JACK/ALSA. As of 2015 the software now runs on Raspbery Pi's with HiFiBerry audio cards. In 2015 Matt Yearout joined the band on midi-bass (YRG Gen2 w/ Radius neck).
