yuri suzuki: 'the physical value of sound' exhibition at clear gallery, tokyo

designer yuri suzuki is currently featured in his first solo exhibition at clear gallery, tokyo, japan. the exhibition showcases suzuki’s interactive works ‘prepared turn table’ and ‘sound chaser’ with the use of vinyl.

‘with the lost of their physicality, objects become virtual existences. the reason why I have a feeling of uneasiness towards sound recorded in a digital format, is because the digital data of sound is nothing more than a virtual copy of the existing original’ says suzuki

the ‘record’ was chosen not just because of the commonness in its time, but because of the simple structure and characteristics of the media. ‘sound’ is recorded on this media in an extremely direct and physical way which allows it to be played simply by amplifying the vibration between the record and the needle dropped upon it. in addition sound can be visually seen and read through the density of the grooves pressed on the record. it could still be said that the record is the most modern, and the finest media in the field of analogue recording technology.

  • super-duper sweet.
    the awesomest part is that with cars on a single track, each could be playing different bands of the vinyl. so a slight difference in where the little trains are positioned on the track creates a large difference in the sound that is played!!!
    one of those “why-didnt-i-think-of-that” things.
