Multi-Armed Turntable

A series of hand-cut records being played simultaneously by a number of stationary, needled arms positioned around a turntable.  Each arm is outfitted with a contact microphone, which picks up the vibrations of the records’ grooves, and sends its signal to the mixing board, where it is further manipulated.  Sounds sourced from recordings of the jungle, lovemaking, space, and hypnotic instructions, are extracted and layered to produce a body of patterns that phase into and out of each other.
