Melanie Manchot - Alpine Diskomiks (2019)

Melanie Manchot – Alpine Diskomiks

As part of Melanie Manchot’s exhibition Open Stage. Back Stage at Pasquart, Switzerland, I was commissioned to build a series of 50 automated turntables which would play a series of records Melanie had collected, in a predetermined sequence. For this I replaced the manual mechanism of an automatic turntable with a servo which could start and stop playback of a record. The turntables were then triggered in turn by a central computer and stopped at the end of the first track.
