In May 2011 Andrew Spackman formed the art noise band OHMMM as an intensive period of ‘making’ and improvised musical ensemble performance. The project provided a platform to test individual and collective making strategies of sound objects and home made electronics, and their implementation within a live improvised ensemble performance.
OHMMM members were allocated an instrument case of restrictive fixed size, and then tasked with making sound objects to be performed within the case in accordance with a constitution/ manifesto of rules. Both box size and manifesto challenged making strategies, functionally, aesthetically and sonically.
