yuri suzuki and oscar diaz: rec & play
‘rec & play’ by yuri suzuki and oscar diaz
‘rec & play’ is a collaborative project between yuri suzuki and oscar diaz. both designers, who met at the RCA, started tinkering a while ago with the intention to create an object that would combine drawing and sound.
the ‘rec’ pen, draws and records sound on a line. it contains a special ferromagnetic ink, made with the same component used to make old cassette tapes, a recording head and a microphone. the ink is applied to the paper and at the same time the recording head can record the sound captured by the microphone situated on the top part of the pen.
the ‘play’ pen retrieves the sound and plays it back. it contains a red head and a speaker. when the red tape head is moved along the line the previously recorded sound can be heard.
to reference and indicate each pen function, the pens uses the color code from old cassette recorders. the ‘rec’ pen is red, and the ‘play’ pen, black. both pens are connected to a circuit board and a power supply to feed the electronic components.
the project, is part of ‘sound interjection’ an exhibition featuring an extensive selection of yuri suzuki’s work, which will be presented for the first time at the kk outlet in london from september 3rd, 2010.
