    I’ve long been experimenting to develop methodologies for production of musicality arising from a coalescence of chance, autonomy, simplicity, chaotic systems (in the mathematical sense of ‘chaos theory’), use of non-instruments, acoustic sound and open-endedness. 


    'an aleatoric ensemble' comprises an open-ended number of similar units, each using a small modified USB turntable as the core component. The important modification is the installation of a DC Motor Controller to allow for variable speed RPM (revolutions per minute).

    Laser cut plywood platens, roughly the size of a vinyl LP, attach to the turntable. These platens serve as a surface for the installation of combinations of trays, boxes and tins which have been prepared by trapping or placement of various balls, spherical seeds (eg Santalum acuminatum), marbles, discs, cylinders and other small objects.

    Set in motion, the constructions turn, objects move, balls roll, surfaces are struck - a strangely captivating, repetitive but always slightly variant musicality is perpetually generated.

    Multiple turntables with various combinations of prepared objects are set in motion simultaneously to create complex soundscapes. Each instrument/device can be played by slight variations in RPM, the addition or subtraction of sounding devices (pingpong balls, bottle caps, tape dispenser cores, quandong seeds, marbles, superballs, etc) and varying combinations of containers (mostly empty tea tins sourced from the thousands of cups of tea I’ve drunk , alone and in company, over the past decade).
