Sanyo G-2612H(N), Demo #1

This video involves the exploration of the phono setting on a Sanyo G-2612H(N) portable hi-fi unit from the 1970’s. The phono setting on this device has some unique sounds that would be otherwise undesirable in a more ‘conventional’ setting. For example, the transducer (and arm) of the turntable is highly sensitive and there appears to be considerable earthing when the device is activated (resulting in hum and crackling.) The Sanyo G-2612H(N) will form the basis of a colaborative work with artist Ryan Sims in late July/early August 2010 as part of the 2010 SALA Moving Image Festival.
