Frazer Merrick uses field recordings, circuit bending and synthesis to create experiences which explore the act of play. Using lo-fi technologies Frazer transforms a space or object, encouraging the audience to become a curious performer and embrace play through interactivity, improvisation and collaboration. Frazer’s work materialises as playful interactive sculptures, transportive soundscapes and empowering educational projects. As a sound artist working in Essex, England, Frazer works across films, video games and interactive installations. Frazer studied at Huddersfield University, earning a 1st Class Honors in Music Technology and Popular Music Studies. He has exhibited at venues including Firstsite, Nottingham Contemporaries and Turner Contemporary as well as producing work with Channel 4 and the BBC.
Frazer is one of Sound and Music’s New Voices 2020.
