(dust, modified record player, altuglass, electronics)

Edition of 3 + 2 A.P.


FMR is a dust sampler based on a record player. The dust collected on the track free black disc — a black mirror — is translated into an audio signal through an analog optical read head. The noise sample played in loop depends of the arm position over the disc and slowly evolves according to the dust falling on the disc.

* The first prototype of FMR was exhibited during Corpusculi Apparatus, solo show at Frédéric Giroux gallery, Paris, in 2010.
