David Ross’s Drosscilator

"Internal Model" (edit)

David Ross was born in 1967 in East London, where he lived and worked until moving to rural Norfolk in 2016. David constructs bizarre electronics devices such as The Davestation and The Drosscilator, and is reportedly the only musician to have composed an album entirely from the sounds of an analogue synthesizer built into a kettle. Alongside these devices, he plays more conventional instruments such as jew's harp, drums, kalimba and kantele. He was the drummer in 1990s band Kenny Process Team and is currently a member of Twinkle3.
