Originally a studio project for making recordings, I now also perform live using the Mechanical Techno method. Several looping records spin on the same axle, ensuring they stay approximately in time with each other. I layer up locked groove records, audio triggers to analogue sytnhs, mechanically played percussion such as a cowbell or a cymbal, and mechanically triggered drum machines. I take all these inputs and perform a live dub, mixing down to two channels live in one take

Two New Weird Britain stalwarts, the mechanical techno producer Graham Dunning and designer of outlandish instruments Sam Underwood, have combined forces to make the mammoth beat organ. Their massive machine - part fairground organ, part jerry rigged sequencer, part mechanical drum machine, part drone generator - had its debut at Supersonic festival in Birmingham this Summer but now you can watch two films on its development and function here. hope to drive this development through performing regular live shows across the world. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for this.
