Patrick Farmer - ‘A teasel & turntable’
Patrick Farmer - turntable and teasel.
This simple piece was recorded some time
ago in Oxford Brookes University.
Patrick Farmer was born in Beckenham, Kent in 1983, and has moved all over the country since then. His mother bought him his first drum kit when he was twelve and eight years later he spent six months in India studying Hindustani Tabla with Pandit Nayan Ghosh. Still most often referred to as a percussionist, though he hasn’t performed on a drum kit for nearly four years, Farmer will commonly enlist the help of a drum or turntable to act as a resonator for natural materials or filtering field recordings. A co-founder of Compost and Height with Sarah Hughes, and a founder member of the Set Ensemble, he's now in the last year of his PhD and spends most of his time walking.
