Installation uses the sound of old record players to make noise

Craft & Design Music

This installation, entitled “Without Records” by Japanese experimental musicians Otomo Yoshihide and Yasutomo Aoyama employs over 100 record-free turntables to create a sound piece dedicated to the result of the dissappearing technology of LPs. Each turntable is augmented with some form of object to create a different effect on the needle arm as it passes the disc platter thus producing an interesting clatter of sounds when heard as a whole. Watch the video and listen to the results.
