Corroded Grooves


In the 'Digital dialectic', Katherine Hayles proposes the breaking down of culturally imposed structuralist dichotomies such as information? materiality, pattern? randomness, information? noise etc. Entitled Corroded Grooves, the installation consists of two phono turntables, a computer, a monitor, audio speakers and a mixing console. The (hidden) computer plays a variety of samples taken from the turntables which have been digitally manipulated to create (occasionally fragmented) minimal rhythms, melodies, and bass tones.
