Phil Archer's "Music Boxes"
Phil Archer's (b.1975) relationship with invented instruments came from a growing disinterest in the creation of what he considered to be “just another piece of music”. In his words, he had “always been interested in the technology of musical instruments, from a simple vibrating string to coding my own software, and enjoyed exploring and combining the range of available materials”.
He has steadily been moving towards the creation of work that is more physical and object-oriented than in traditional forms of composition, “blurring lines between instrument and score, composition and performance - resulting in poetic, often absurd objects that [he finds] interesting visually, sonically and conceptually”.
