Felix's Machines

Electronic music takes on a whole new meaning in the hands of Felix Thorn, whose intricate installations combine Heath Robinson ingenuity with mesmeric sound and lighting. Each installation is a medley of bespoke mechanical devices, individually designed to make a different sound: hammers strike, drums beat and bells ping with all the range of a percussion orchestra. 

The result is far from the cacophony you might expect. Programmed by a computer, the machines dovetail into specially composed sequences of hypnotically percussive music, while the accompanying lighting and the movement of a thousand mechanical parts brings everything magically to life. With Felix’s Machines, mechanical music has never been less mechanical.
