Skatchbox instrument amplifies plucking, picking, & scraping


Tom Nunn demonstrates the “skatchbox” a simple percussion box outfitted with contacts mics and a plethora of objects for scraping, tapping, swiping, etc. The shuffling and raspy textures the boxes make are pretty unique, certainly warranting further investigation by audio experimentalists out there. And if you’ve got some plastic combs, a piezo disc, and a flat box building one of these should be a breeze.
