[turntables, self-pressed records, modified needles, percussive objects]

This piece is not about turntables, but it is about sounds. However, because designing & producing any sound is a reflex of the instrument itself, one ends up dissecting the turntables as musical objects. This piece is about subversion if you consider that the turntable is typically seen as a musical reproduction instrument rather than a musical production instrument. As the turntable matures, new voices are pressed on it, beyond scratching and conventional turntablism, these resonate sounds through feedback, self-built needles, percussive objects and self-pressed acetate records.
