Mustek is the ongoing collaboration between composer / performers Lauren Sarah Hayes and Christos Michalakos. The duo explores methods of augmenting their given acoustic instruments whilst investigating strategies for real-time processing in conjunction with instrumental performance. They aim to unify extended technique, bespoke software and instrument design with works that explore methods for integrating acoustic and electronic sound worlds. They perform using analogue synths, found objects, percussion, laptops, prepared pianos and homemade electronics.
