Vinyl Destruction

An afternoon’s workshop exploring different ways of making sound with damaged or modified records. Also forms part of the Experimental Sound Art course.

September 2010, Kraak Gallery, London
November 2013 (two dates), Dalston, London

Experiment with different ways of destroying, damaging, collaging, altering and re-texturing records, and hear what each adaptation sounds like. Piece together the broken pieces into a Frankenstein audio collage. Explore the physicality of the turntable as an instrument and test its boundaries. Present your work in a euphoric, cacophonous sound performance.

Keep What You Make!
All materials, tools and equipment provided.
High quality audio recordings of your experiments and performance.
Cozy warehouse studio space in the centre of Dalston.

Led by sound artist and qualified tutor Graham Dunning the workshop includes information on artists abusing records from Fluxus composers through the late 70s New York performance art scene to present day international artists and free improvisers.
