about

“Primal Utterance” – that is the nature of skatch. Articulations of shaped noise arising directly from the gut through the application of combs to cardboard and objects attached thereto. From these most humble of materials comes a new universe of sound reminiscent of wind, seashore, trees rustling, birds singing, frogs T.D. Skatchitcroaking, dogs barking, cats fighting, tires squealing, motors running. The skatchbox is an organic “synthesizer” of noise, but the noise is not synthetic; it is acoustic. With the simplest gesture, comb in hand, a rich complexity of sonic articulation arises effortlessly. Yet with study and practice, variegated techniques are developed in the use of the combs, themselves shaped so as to function most efficiently. Add to this the sophisticated talent of the guest improvisers presented here and one has a truly unique music.
