DIY Vinyl Press
19 December 2012, 10:00 - 17:00
WORKSHOP LEAD BY YANN LEGUAY
Complete program of Objet Inusité
This workshop will focus on vinyl pressing techniques using a homemade vinyl press. A workshop that will teach the skills and knowledge surrounding a quasi-ancestral technique: sound etching. The possibility to etch onto wax, photographic film, or even CDs, is what creates a sound through the rotation of the disc, a movement inherent to any sound-making device, and that only the mp3 has stopped making use of. Participants will learn how to create their own dub-plates and experiment around this time-tested technique.
Yann Leguay’s work focuses on sound materiality, wherein diversion and tautology are the main ingredients of his practice. Since 2007, his installations and performances have been shown in numerous locations and festivals in Europe and elsewhere. He is involved in contemporary dance projects and composes soundtracks for artist films. In 2005 he co-founded the RadioFreeRobots collective, a radiophonic concept using synthetic voices and computer noises as unique audio source. He created the independent label Phonotopy, which proposes a conceptual approach of recording media, and he now curates the DRIFT Collection of the label Artkillart.
