Over the past 12 years Strutton has been making a series of drawings using an old wind-up gramophone to produce facsimiles of 7" records. recently this activity has developed into a performance in which the emphasis will shift from the product to the process, and focus more on the ritualistic aspect of making; a kind of séance in which Carbone and Strutton attempt to give voice to the information being inscribed on the paper.

John Strutton is an artist and musician living and working in London. Over the past few years Strutton has been working on a growing archive of short video works with soundtracks drawn from material recorded by Strutton's band "Arthur Brick" and fellow musician Riccardo Carbone. In 1999 he formed the "The Band of Nod" which performed and exhibited at Camden Arts Centre, Reading Festival, Tate Britain and The Whitechapel Gallery. Recent solo exhibitions include "Grease Madonna" (2014) and "Opus Dopus" (2012) at Domobaal, London and "Donderslag" at Volta NY, New York (2009). Recent group exhibitions include "The Right Hand Gives, The Left Hand Takes Away", Extrapool, Nijmegen, Netherlands (2013), "MK Calling", MK Gallery, Milton Keynes (2013) and "Parkhaus", Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, Germany (2008).
