Turntable Drawing Thirteen is an immersive sound installation of handmade records played alongside live instrumental musicians. Part sculptural sketch, part three-dimensional print, each record is part of a wide-ranging collection formed using a variety of techniques and materials. Records are imprinted with mathematical textures, original recorded material, or direct casts of existing LPs that include some of history’s earliest recorded sounds. Visitors are invited to play the records or simply explore the space as the sounds unfold. Adapting a central inquiry of printmaking, the project investigates the possibilities of music as a physical print--a tactile imprint of an original source.
