Anton Mobin

Anton Mobin is musician, improvisor, experimental instrument-biuilder and develops his own electro-acoustic instruments since 2008 which « Prepared Chamber » is the generic name.

The instrument was born in the evolution of my instrumental practice in a constant need to redefine my installation by moving from a table-object to an instrument with definite forms. The « prepared chamber » takes shape in a large wooden box with a resonance table in which numerous daily objects, springs and strings are organized and amplified by three home-made magnetic pickups and two piezzo- electric contact microphones.

The third version of the « Prepared Chamber » have been rewarded in 2016 at Hugh Davies Project Residency and presents significant changes and new technical characteristics in terms of ergonomic and construction method to make it evolve to more details and refinement with a much better sound quality.

Anton Mobin has federated around his practice the pioneers of improvised music (Adam Bohman, Charlie Collins, Derek Saw or Neil Metcalfe) as young and dynamic musicians of the scene ‘New and Improvised Music’ in London (Benedict Taylor, Colin Webster, Will Connor, Tom Jackson, Daniel Thompson, David Birchall). Anton also occasionally joins the ‘London Improvisers Orchestra’; on stage (including key artists such as Steve Beresford, Phil Minton, Terry Day, Adam Bohman, Neil Metcalfe, Adrian Northover…)
