Solo for a DVD player

Digital Versatile Music’ (2014)

for a dvd player

With the power on stand-by, stroke a telephone pick-up coil across the top of a standard domestic dvd player. Move in slow, graceful arcs, picking out ‘sweet spots’ where the most resonant noises can be found and focus on these areas to generate a steady, throbbing hum.

Turn the machine on. Make another sweep with the pick-up coil to see what new noises you can eke out of it.

Insert a disc and press play. Skip chapters and fast-forward. Keep sweeping for sounds.

Eject the disc. Insert another (does your player accept Bluray?). Repeat.

Finally, power off.
