dc.description.abstract The primary research imperatives of the Mute Synth II are to consider the dissemination of a musical idea other than through recorded fixed media (CD, mp3, etc.), explore the intersection between sound object and artwork etching, and provide a catalyst for participatory events/workshops and collaborate performance pieces. The graphical artwork for the printed circuit board of the Synth has been done in collaboration with Adrian Shaughnessy, graphic designer, author and senior lecturer at the Royal College of Art, London. The booklet contains schematics, documentation and essays on the instrument and music, whilst the CD is a compilation of pieces by Dirty Electronics (John Richards) and artists that explore the Mute Synth II. This is an ongoing research project that commenced in 2011 with an established record company and publisher, Mute Records (subsidiary of EMI). The research output will be supported by international performances, press releases, interviews, talks and articles. en
