The Phonotrope™ is a type of 3d/2d zoetrope using a record player and a camera.
Jewel fingered DJ Malcolm Goldie and I spent an evening at the ICA in May experimenting with the Phonotrope™. It was a live affair with the intention of weaving a mish mash of sounds and images infront of a stunned audience. Well... that was the intention.
Malcolm had created bespoke loops and tracks to the 33 frame principle while I had created a new bunch of discs which we played out and had fun with with 2 cameras and some angle poised lamps.
It kind of worked, it kind of didn't BUT there was some exciting promise buried within, promise which needs to be looked at when I have time.
In the meanstwhile Malcom edited the footage and cut a new track just to establish our progress.
Many thanks to Gemma Tortella for her organising the event. Watch this space (not specifically this one but one near it).
