One of the UK's most compelling sound artists, Janek Schaefer's bold, beautiful, compositions have earned him a worldwide reputation. His cult status rests on his trademark adapted tri-arm turntable, weaving live vinyl with found sounds into intimate, hypnotic and exhilarating soundscapes. For this commissioned work, the audience took their place on a gym mat to hear Janek's latest soundscape, incorporating familiar sounds of balls bouncing on suspended floors, that reverberated around the hall to form a unique sound experience.
Janek Schafer’s concerts and installations explore the spatial and architectural aspect that sound can evoke and the twisting of technology. Hybrid analogue and digital techniques are used to manipulate field recordings with live modified vinyl and found sound to create evocative and involving environments.
