Radboud Mens is a sound-artist, composer and sound designer who is working with sound since 1982. He started creating noise-machines in 1988. In the early 90’s he attached contact-microphones to dog’s brushes that he used to destroy vinyl records by scratch-playing them and recorded the results. Since many years he builts his own acoustic instruments and sound-installations. Bass-recorder flutes, long magnetic string installations, dronemachines and prepared guitars that are being played by transducers are used in liveconcerts. The recordings of these concerts are used in new compositions. Radboud Mens has worked with a broad variety of sound artists and composers, including Stephan Mathieu, Janek Schaefer, voice-artist Jaap Blonk and Craig Ward (ex-Deus).
