Works For Turntable by Stephen Cornford

After his great answers to the Five Sound Questions I would like to share Stephen Cornford’s Works For Turntable with you. A very nice composition for kinetic sculptures on ‘prepared turntables’. 

The strength of the work lies in the combination of the different sounds, and by adding and removing layers the repetition of the individual parts never becomes boring.

It is also the mechanical nature of the looping sounds that keeps them interesting to listen to. Unlike a lot of contemporary electronic loop-based music with the same sounds copy-pasted over and over again, in these Works For Turntable the looping sound is never exactly the same, there are slight variations in every turn.

Apologies Hugo and readers for using this space for a sales pitch, but I thought some of the readers might be interested to know that a 7" record was pressed to accompany the exhibition of these sculptures last year. The 7" contains two entirely different compositions from this video - you can hear them online here: - and I have got loads of the records left - so if anyone wants to buy one then do drop me an email.
