A record without prior acoustic information

Online performance

JO Kazuhiro[Japan]


Inspired by the provocative idea of creating a record without prior acoustic information, proposed by Moholy-Nagy of Bauhaus, waveforms in vector format are directly engraved as grooves on a paper surface to generate sounds of arbitrary frequencies on a record player. This performance demonstrates that music can be created on a desktop at home, in a form that is different from online streaming as an alternative to live music performances.
