From his early interest in electronics and '80s synth-pop to setting up a museum showcasing obsolete electronic and music technology, Sam Battle, who goes under the moniker Look Mum No Computer, is carving out a unique niche for himself.
Known as both an Inventor and Musician and with a strong Patreon following, Sam makes a feature of reworking old technology to create new and interesting sounds. He has repurposed discarded Teletubbies, Furbies and Speak & Spell's to create various interactive projects, which are used in his musical compositions and are also featured at his museum in Ramsgate, Kent, UK.
