Thierry talks about Scratchophone:
“I was exasperated with my classic DJ gear setup, I couldn’t move it to play with others musicians, I couldn’t practice in the sofa or outdoors unlike the guitar …
I gave myself the mission to design a new scratch instrument to solve this problem: the Scratchophone. After a dozen of prototypes, I had what I wanted : the first portable, all in one and autonomous scratch instrument.”
