– sound installation

[turntable, dubplate, camera, max/jitter based tracking software, 96 speaker wave field synthesis]

AES Convention, Berlin 2014

A 12“ dubplate has been cut with a silent groove, and is played back on a turntable. The turntable also serves as a user-interface for sound spatialization within a wave field synthesis system. The sound of the needle is rotating in the room at 33 1/3 revolutions per minute giving one the sensation of standing on a record. With the increasing wear of the medium over time, the surface noise increases, making the sound easier to locate.
