Dead Wood - How The Tables

Today I made a track for Disquiet Junto project 0033: Turntable Played. Click the photo above to listen / download.

The Assignment: Make music with a turntable but without vinyl.

Firstly I recorded the sound of 4 separate unamplified turntables while interacting with the machines by knocking the arm, messing with the cue / cancel buttons and occasionally letting the needle fall onto the slip mat.

The sounds were captured with a contact mic, recorded straight to cassette, then later recorded into a laptop and processed using loopers in Reaktor 5 software. There are no other effects used, although the cassette itself was old and there were some moments where it had previously chewed and stretched.
