Small groups squeezed into Neil Feather’s crowded and fantastic studio and experience numerous experimental musical instruments. Neil shared instruments with attendees including the Nondo, the Contraption, Vibrowheels, Former Guitars, the Futura Ultra-Retro and many more.
Sound mechanic Neil Feather has been creating radical and unusual musical instruments since 1970 and is increasingly known outside of Baltimore as one of the most original musical thinkers of his day. His instruments each embody uniquely clever acoustic and engineering principles, and are visually arresting. The music he plays on the instruments is equally original, embodying new principles and resulting in a nearly alien idiom of music. A founding member of THUS and THE OFFICIAL PROJECT, as well as the leader of AEROTRAIN, he has a long history of collaborative projects and solo concerts, and he teaches a sound sculpture course at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore MD.
