Maker Faire UK: Presentation and performance of Mechanical Techno for If Wet (Newcastle)
On Saturday 25th April I’ll be appearing for If Wet at Maker Faire UK – to present a demonstration of the Mechanical Techno project, and also to play a live set.
On the Saturday, we have Graham Dunning presenting his ingenious Mechanical Techno system, which he uses to create wonky techno, through a series of stacked platters, tonearms and contact mic drum / synth triggers. In his words:
“Mechanical Techno: Ghost in the Machine music – vinyl dissonance for lost memories. A live dubbed rhythmical collage made of squeezed record crackle, analogue synthesizer, dubplates of field recordings, dusty shellac records and clumsily triggered drum machines.”
During our first session of the day Graham will discuss this system and his approach. Later in the day you will get chance to come back to the stage to hear him perform a Mechanical Techno set.
