adventures in circuit bending, diy electronics and experimental music
The Merdedith Box is a simple electronic instrument created for a forthcoming performance by the Dirty Electronics Ensemble of a specially composed piece by leading contemporary composer Anna Meredith.
It contains a simple oscillator with tuning and wave shaping controls, a light source and a speaker. Each member of the ensemble has built their own instrument in a box of their choosing. Mine is built into a wooden watch case with a polycarbonate panel with LED matrix mounted in it.
The piece will be performed on the 30th May 2012 along with other works including Optical Pianola by Jim Frize. PACE Studio1, De Montfort Universtiy, Leicester, UK
