The Little Noise Wheel

So I don't know how many people are aware of this, but a few months ago I open my own studio right here in the heart of Parkdale. Well maybe not the heart, but just to the left of that. In the process of opening I found a surprisingly large amount of undocumented projects. A few Junkstruments which I will be posting over the next few weeks. A fair number of Fauxbots that I have already started posting on their page, Jars and jars of Swirls, a disturbingly large amount of Random Acts Of Art. So many that I don't even know where to start. There were even three Metal Dresses just waiting to be built into free standing forms. Don't even get me started on what I am going to do with the Spaceroom.

This was a Junkstrument I built for a play called Petrichor. My job in the play was instruments and set design along with some foley work. I will be posting all of the foley junkstruments soon.
This was built from my nephews old bike, a lovely brass candy dish, the cast metal bass of a floor lamp, and high tension steel strip that goes thwap. Very simple to build, dosen't do very much aside from thwapping, but does that thwapping well.

Keep that thwapper thwapping.
