Turntable Drawings is a collaboration between composer Danny Clay and printmaker Jon Fischer. The pair play a collection of custom-made records for interactive performance events, exploring vinyl as sculptural and sonic prints.
Clay and Fischer manufacture records imprinted with mathematical textures, original recorded materials, and direct casts of existing LPs that include some of history’s earliest recorded sounds. Turntable Drawings places records and turntables in McEvoy Arts’ main gallery for invited artists and visitors to browse and play. Clay and Fischer conduct a “turntable orchestra,” inviting guest artists from various disciplines (music, visual art, performance, creative writing) and students to interact with the soundscape.
Clay and Fischer’s Turntable Drawings, along with Christine Marie’s Shadows in Stereo, are a series of interactive workshops and performances in conjunction with Stories: Philip-Lorca diCorcia & Constance DeJong, McEvoy Arts’ Spring 2018 exhibition. Free and open to the public, these live experiments revisit the 20th-century technologies of vinyl records (Clay, Fischer) and augmented reality (Marie). They invite visitors to participate in a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process.
