Graham Dunning – Modified Records for Mechanical Techno Workshop
At the NEXT Festival 2023, Graham Dunning hosts a workshop Modified Records for Mechanical Techno.
Graham Dunning’s work explores sound as texture, timbre and something tactile, drawing on bedroom production, tinkering and recycling found objects.
With the Mechanical Techno live setup, he uses a standard DJ turntable as a sequencer, sound source and ramshackle engine, building a spinning contraption in real-time to make wonky and weird dance music. In this workshop, you can explore the design and creation of the modified records he uses with his Mechanical Techno performances. Participants will make modified vinyl records and experiment with them to hear the results and build a loop/track.
Every participant brings with them 2 LP vinyls which can be used to create their own modified records.
