WHEN AND WHERE
Interferenze Festival Bisaccia, Italy 23-25 July 2010
The first version of Slate Tracks was created by customising an existing record player, to play and amplify, stone slate records. The slate records have been made using recycled roof slate taken from outhouses in rural Ireland. The slates were cut and chiseled into 7-inch record-shape. Each slate is placed on one of the custom made record base and amplified using varying sized colored, paper and plastic cones, with steel needles at each end. This produces an effect is similar to old gramophones.
