Ed Davenport

Also on show at the RCA on Thursday night saw Ed Davenport show off his DJing and his rather special ‘Phono/Graph’.

Two vinyl record players are adapted to create a machine capable of ‘drawing’ the sound of a record as it is played. One turntable plays a standard 12inch vinyl and sends a signal to another turntable, which uses a vibration unit to make the whole thing shake in time to the music. A pen replaces a needle on this vibrating turntable, allowing a pattern to be tracked onto a paper circle, which can be removed and examined. The results of which look fantastic.
