I am interested in the use of Bricollage as an approach to making. As part of my studio work I have amassed a collection of circuits, components and electronic devices. Inspired by their variety, colour and function, I have combined old and new technology to create a hybrid meta-system in the area of musical performance.

A period of experimentation preceded the lucky find of a Casio SA-10 synthesiser at a weekend market. Inspired by the sounds and rhythms of the instrument, I decided to combine it with the Ardiunio to create a sequencer. This smart system would enable a computer or another MIDI instrument to play the SA-10. At this stage only the computer control has been implemented.
