Songs for Stylophone Beatbox

Stylophone Beatbox
On Wednesday 27th October I did a performance at Birmingham City University as part of my studies in Digital Arts in Performance. For this performance I wanted to look at the environment and conditions you need in order for errors to occur and to observe them. In order to observe an error you need a very rigid system and regularity. When there’s something that breaks this pattern you know it’s an error.

In this performance each person was given a Stylophone Beatbox, a pair of headphones that played a metronome and sheet music to read from. I acted as a performer and conductor, although my only instructions were when to begin and end, to read the sheet from left to right and play to repeatedly.

The errors in this system occurred due to our individual interpretations of the instructions given to us and lack of understanding of the instrument. An instrument can take years to master and, although the level learning curve is claimed to be quite low, the Stylophone is still a difficult instrument to master, as demonstrated.

Changing Room at SARC

You may remember this piece from last year at Eastside Projects. Unlike last time instead of one artist having a week to develop work this time a group of artists will have a day to produce something.


Myself, Ana Benlloch and Rachel Darke will be building and showcasing our work in the space on Saturday 6th November with a ritual ‘performance’ taking place from around 1pm


Changing Room will be showcased at Sonic Arts Research Centre. The ritual will be taking place simultaneously at Transitional Space in Second Life and at The Cage in Walsall from around 1pm. If you intend to take part in the ritual at Walsall get there for around 12pm.
