»Long Wave Goodbye«, 2006, 33-minute sound loop by Michael Day. “Some sounds persist as signifiers of other meanings even though they rarely occur in daily life: the screech of a stylus being pulled from a vinyl record is often used as a clichéd way of drawing the audience’s attention to a sudden change of pace in visual broadcast media, even though very few people under the age of 20 will recognise the source of the sound or what it originally signified. Tuning, or dead air, may well end up the same, a signifier dislocated permanently from its signified. This piece presents a transition across the full range of the long wave spectrum available on the Technics SA-200L.”

Paper Record Player. To play the record the handle needs to be turned in a clockwise direction at a steady 331/3 rpm. The paper cone then acts as a pick up and amplifies the sound enough to make it audible.


FM Radio Map. This map plots the location of FM commercial and pirate radio stations within London. The poster works in its own right as a piece of information design, but when connected to the modified radio it becomes part of the interface. Placing a metal contact onto each point enables us to listen to the sound broadcast live from that location. By Simon Elvins.


Yokomono consists of 10 small car-shaped record players, a corresponding set of FM radios and two mixing desks. The cars, known as “vinyl killers,” have been customised with wireless FM transmitters. As they spin around the vinyl, they transmit their signal to the FM radios tuned to a special Yokomono frequency. This transmission is then mixed, edited and manipulated in real-time by members of the Staalplaat Soundsystem.
