This Decibel concert featured works which engage the turntable and vinyl record as sources of musical material in their own right, beyond the turntable as a machine, and the vinyl record as a container for a complete, recorded piece of music. Since the invention of the gramophone in the late nineteenth century, composers have experimented with using the player and records in their music: as instruments, scores and sound materials. Directed by Cat Hope, Decibel performed works by The Velvet Undergraound, Cage, Knížák, as well as new commissions for records and ensemble by Hope, Ross Smith, Vickery, De Groot.
