Join us for an open session of work-in-progress that is curious, interactive, and collaborative from Frazer Merrick.

Frazer is a sound artist who uses field recording, circuit bending and instrument building to create carnivalesque sonic experiences. He has performed a gig underwater for Essex Book Festival, recorded an award-winning binaural soundscape of Walton pier for BBC Radio 3, and was selected as one of Sound and Music’s New Voices for 2020.

Frazer is currently developing the Photon Smasher, a range of instruments which turn light into sound. During his residency at Snape Maltings, Frazer will experiment with using the venues lighting rig as a musical instrument to create an audio-visual performance where light generates sound.
