ISD! Introductions: Michael Ridge
As an artist I create works in various formats, but most often it involves sound or found objects.
My work frequently explores creative uses of sound storage mediums such as audio cassettes and vinyl records, often taking a highly experimental and playful approach. Presenting to audiences and listeners the unwanted, overlooked or decayed.
Other activities include recording and performing Noise Music under the alias Zebra Mu, and running the DIY record label Quagga Curious Sounds. I also form one half of the drawing/zine/mail art duo Ridge & Scrase.
