Jeff Mills – ‘The Visitor’

Jeff Mills – ‘The Visitor’

I was approached by sound artist/designer/musician Yuri Suzuki to help realise a project he was working on with legendary techno DJ and producer Jeff Mills. I consulted with Yuri’s team on how their design could be made and they went on to produce the CAD drawings, a wooden prototype and also fitted the electronics afterwards. I had the drawings lasercut/machined and then we fabricated the final piece. This involved welding an aluminium subframe clad in mirror gold stainless steel with an aluminium shaft and central hub to allow height adjustment and disassembly. I also fabricated a flight case that can act as a way of displaying the instrument as it tours the world with Jeff.
