This orange beast was made from a foghorn previously on a boat but salvaged and recycled by Nick from the scrap heap in Dorchester.

He is a mostly self taught enthusiast of music having spent many years in schools and village halls giving educational demonstrations to inspire young children, as well as running creative hands-on workshops.

He enjoys collecting all sorts of instruments ranging from a serpent to a theremin and then building new ones, such as the "crumpled horn" from an immersion tank and a 30 stringed harp made from a steel bath.
