Sudophone (Merztin)


This is a Sudophone or Merztin which I’ve completed today at a workshop with John Richards (kREEPA) at DMU Leicester. It has been designed by John for a specially commissioned performance with Japanese noise artist Merzbow. The Sudophone is a collision of oscillators, feedback networks and distortion housed in a junk tin can with grip bolts and electrode-controllers. Merzbow will be joined on stage by a 25 piece Dirty Electronics Ensemble made up of De Montfort University students and myself at 2 concerts in Birmingham and Leicester

Wednesday, 16th April – Hare and Hound, Birmingham
Thursday, 17th April – PACE Studio, De Montfort University, Leicester
