Turntable preparations video series

I’ve started working on a series of videos called ‘Turntable Preparations’. The idea to spend about 5 minutes with a particular turntable preparation, mostly unedited, to allow the viewer to tune into the subtle changes these preparations undergo over time (due to centrifugal force and plain old entropy), both visually and rhythmically. Here’s the first in the series:

Subsequent videos will feature different preparations, camera angles, and site locations.

Llara Goodall and Clinton Green at Make It Up Club – Tue 13 June 2017

I’ve played with Llara a bit over the past couple of years as part of Carmen Chan’s Do You See What I Hear Project, but this is our first duo together.

Llara Goodall (tapes) & Clinton Green (records) like to make sounds to remind themselves that they are not alone. They will be constructing a soundscape by deconstructing a text about soundscapes.
