Frazer Merrick uses field recordings, circuit bending and synthesis to create experiences which explore the act of play. Using lo-fi technologies he transforms spaces and objects, encouraging the audience to become a curious performer and embrace play through interactivity, improvisation and collaboration. His work materialises as playful interactive sculptures, transportive soundscapes and empowering educational projects.
