Skatch Surveillance
EDT4126

“Thomas Skatchit continued to design and construct new skatchboxes while his cousin David mixed the various waveforms that had been recorded. The Skatchits had been seen at concert halls, bar rooms and dives, listening to and making note of the growing potential of Skatch.”
And so continues the mythology of T.D. Skatchit & Company - Tom Nunn and David Michalak playing skatchboxes in trios with various Bay Area improvisers.
”A secret Society of Skatch was formed to celebrate the wondrous sounds of the Skatchbox. Covert arrangements were made to meet and record the new skatch music you hear on this recording!”
Skatch Surveillance, their 3rd release, celebrates the ongoing development of skatchbox techniques pioneered by Tom and David and is an exploration of the varied influences guest musicians bring to the music of Skatch. The 16 tracks include – We Do Know, Detective Skatchit, Skatch Surveillance, Your Brain on Skatch and others. Guest musicians include: Aurora Josephson, Chris Brown, Jonathan Segel, Karen Stackpole and others.

“Skatch Surveillance is a seasoned expression of a unique instrument ~ the Skatchbox.” Walter Ruffman, S.F. Monical

"Its sound is like a shuffling across of similar sounds (each part of the same comb), a bit like sawing, zipping, or the sounds of a fence when walking by with a stick sliding on it, or a bit like the crank ensemble. 1 also gives us phone and speaking fragments from a male. 2 female voice spit, spritz, spray, gargle, piggy noises, mood intonations, hm, arigato, ah!, ahhh, grumble, end of voice awes (stretched), and some words “we do (know)”. 4 snakes, garbling fish, arcade noises, and further (very accessible track). 5 more wind-voice then flute. 6 male voice, Italian? French?"
