A two-channel audio installation, where modified turntables generate sound from pictures. Instead of using a needle to read imprinted audio from vinyl, the custom electronics translate light into soundwaves. The audio systems on the pick-ups are replaced with light sensors, aimed at the rotating photo dish. Occurring changes in brightness are translated directly into an analog audio signal and put out through speakers. The performer can influence the generated sounds by repositioning the pickups, as well as changing rotation speed as well as amplification parameters.
