This Suped-Up Turntable Makes Techno By Itself

This Suped-Up Turntable Makes Techno By Itself
Conner Rennie

The EDM scene bothers me. We’re stuck in an never-ending loop, where we latch onto the popular trend like a fridge magnet, and hold on for dear life; it seems progress and innovation has come to somewhat of a standstill. Well that was until I stumbled across Graham Dunning, a mechanically curious experimental musician who’s newest contraption makes what could be the rawest form of techno you’ve ever heard.

Dunning has combined layers of vinyl, synthesisers a drum machine and of course a cowbell, to create a musical monster, reminiscent of a Rube Goldberg contraption. With the project focusing on “repetition, layering, automata, & mechanised art-making”, this ingenious musician transformed an everyday turntable into a spectacle as visually entertaining and inspiring as aurally.

People like Dunning put this scene into a better perspective. His innovation casts aside the many copycats and bedroom producers eagerly jumping on the hottest new trend, and makes way for rule breakers and the few who think outside the box.
