Gene Pool#58: Stephen Cornford

Stephen Cornford in SARU StudioExchanging dismantled vintage cassette players in the post and coaxing sound from ancient media. Sound artist, Curator and SARU Research Fellow, Stephen Cornford talks about his projects in the run up to the 2012 AudioGraft Festival at Oxford Brookes University.

We hear extracts from his room installation of cassette players that amplify their own mechanisms “Binatone Galaxy” and improvised electronic performance of “Cartridge Music” with fellow Sonic Arts Research Unit staff member and artist, Paul Whitty.

Plus a spontaneous discovery of sounds from the old VCS3 synthesiser laying in the corner of the studio at SARU.
