Modified record workshop for Estorick Gallery, London

Adult Art Class: Mechanical Techno

5 March 2019 / 18:30 – 20:30 / Estorick Collection
39A Canonbury Square, London N1 2AN

Join artist and musician Graham Dunning to learn different techniques to modify three vinyl records to create a mechanical techno composition. Learn about live sampling from records; optical trigger pattern disks and rotating physical sequencer to explore rhythm as pattern and fractions as beats. Finally, each set of three disks will be combined in the tower to create a playable machine-composition. You will get to keep the records you make along with a recording of your live composition.

This class is suitable for all levels of experience.

About the artist
Graham Dunning is a self-taught artist and musician. His live work explores sound as texture, timbre and something tactile, drawing on bedroom production, tinkering and recycling found objects. Much of the work evolves through experimentation with different processes: considering the methods by which sounds become music; process as a continuum encompassing both improvisational and procedural methods; and testing analogous processes across different media. Graham has performed solo and in ensembles across the UK, Europe and Canada, and exhibited in the UK, Europe, New Zealand and USA.
