"without records"

It sounds like some urban creatures inhabiting at a piece of property in midtown manhattan.

Musician/ composer/ producer Otomo Yoshihide's computer-operated installation - a series of empty turntables set up to produce a variety of sounds - was created as an homage to Christian Marclay's album Record Without a Cover (1985).  Presented in conjunction with the Turntable Duo concert on November 19, 2011 at Japan Society, of New York City.

Sound composed by Otomo Yoshihide
Visual composition by Aoyama Yasutomo
System design & Programing by Ito Takayuki

without records members: Hirabayashi Makoto, Hasegawa Akiyo, Tsubasa Kamei, Ayumi Sakamoto, Soichiro Migita, Futoshi Miyai

Installation made possible through the cooperation of Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media (YCAM), with technical support by YCAM interlab.
