Yuri Suzuki is an artist and musician interested in “revamping and giving new forms and meanings to the turntable, a device which very few of us still have in their house.
Music is become more and more digital and abstract, and Suzuki is interested in exploring the physical, tangible representation of sound.
The Prepared Turntable, above, is an analog answer to the digitalized DJ. The turntable has 5 tone arms, each of which can have its volume controlled by its own fader. Users can make or play music with special loop groove records.
More examples of his work are available at We Make Money Not Art.
