From the studio (SSTR6) to the workshop (Kunst- und Räderwerk) and out into the world: Vinylograph is circling and can be seen in two locations during the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK!
The machine for cutting records designed by Christoph Freidhöfer enables one to make real-time recordings on 7-inch vinyl. Since 2016, Natascha Muhic has used this technology to arrange and produce over 100 one-off records in ad-hoc recording sessions (with, amongst others, Voodoo Jürgens). Now, the two designers are working on a new Vinylograph for the public realm: a freely accessible sound-recording cabin as a mini studio, in which three minutes can be spontaneously registered on vinyl. The results are individual one-off recordings, small audio works of art, which can equally well be carefully-considered sound pieces or spontaneous impressions of an attitude to life: moments in the big city together with the sounds specific to the locality. The Vinylograph for the public realm is being built in Christoph Freidhöfer's workshop and is in the process of being finalized. During the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, two special guided tours are offering visitors an opportunity to inspect and try out the Vinylograph for the public realm as it approaches completion.
