Roger Clarke, founder and creator of the Record Player Orchestra, will lead a workshop that will give you the opportunity to experiment with the record player as an instrument. Engagement with the stylus’s physical placement on the vinyl is key and no prior skill or expertise is needed. By discovering how to play the record player, participants can start to understand the qualities and particularities of this instrument, what kind of playing might be possible and what might be more problematic.
The Record Player Orchestra are brought to you in partnership with A3 Projects Space. Based in Digbeth, Birmingham A3 supports contemporary artists to develop their work and their relationships with audiences.
