Record Player Orchestra workshop
Saturday 13 June
As part of Supersonic Festival A3 presents a Record Player Orchestra workshop led by founder Roger Clarke.
Roger will lead a workshop that will give you the opportunity to experiment with the record player as an instrument. The workshop will generate ideas for a public event in collaboration with Sellotape Cinema as part of Digbeth First Friday on 4 July.
In the Record Player Orchestra the record player becomes an instrument in which engagement with stylus being physically placed on the vinyl is key. No prior skill or expertise is needed to do this and, as with most aspects of the Record Player Orchestra, all participants are beginners at playing this instrument and all become more adept during their playing. By discovering how to play the record player, participants can start to understand the qualities and particularities of this instrument, what kind of playing might be possible and what might be more problematic.
