dyskograf translates drawings into musical sequences

with the de-materialization of objects having led to an ignorance of the principles of recording and reading music, media artists jesse lucas, erwan raguenes & yro have developed ‘dyskograf’, a graphic disk reader capable of translating drawings into audible sequences through the use of binary code, cameras and paper. as each disc passes in front of the recording equipment onto a fixed arm, a substitution between the needle converts the illustration into sound using specific software applications. through this system, the sequential ordering of music is learnt in a playful way, creating a unique object as a souvenir. the interactive installation ultimately leads to the rediscovery of perceptible contact with recorded instrumentals.
