The Catastrophone (2023)

Why are digital instruments so often created using unsustainable materials? Is it possible to design a large digital instrument from eco-friendly materials? These are the questions I had in mind when designing The Catastrophone.


The Catastrophone is a new large digital musical instrument that is gesturally performed using mallets or hands. It is 2 metres wide and tall. It is created using recycled cardboard and paper, specifically collaged images of cats, hence the name!

The Catastrophone has been shown and performed at:

  • ​The Science Museum, London - October 2023

  • The Albany, London - October 2023

  • Cafe Oto, London - November 2023

  • IKLECTIK, London - January 2024
