David Sutherland founded the audio-visual group m o n o f o g in 2014 with partner Ilauszky Tamás. This British and Hungarian duo assembled all the lo-fi and junk instruments and started by simply 'playing' with the idea of music and looking at the acoustic bodies also as art objects.
“ … Our instruments are 'mono' - the audio junk of a disposable world. We celebrate the broken instrument and found object. The bicycle wheel is bowed - the corrugated insulation pipe is sounded. Carrots are strategically positioned on guitars.”
The 21st Century collage has expanded its previous boundaries and we can now listen to it ( thanks to m o n o f o g ) . The found object was once marvelled at but it is now blown, bowed and sounded. Hoorah !
