Sound installation by Jimmy Eadie uses several old vinyl turntables to play sounds together, intentionally making use of their worn imperfections for effect. (John Cage & Arvo Pärt would def. approve.) The title of the installation, Wow & Flutter, refers to the phenomena of mechanical instabilities of turntables that can cause subtle pitch variations and beating effects on playback.
“The first recorded music I experienced was on vinyl and I always seem to remember the hiss, static and random jumps of the needle as much as the music itself. I would play with the turntable speeds,changing records from 45 RPM to 33 RPM and was intrigued at this new slowed down sound world. This piece could be considered a listening sculpture celebrating and evoking that memory.”
