Work from his oeuvre.
“‘with the lost of their physicality, objects become virtual existences. the reason why I have a feeling of uneasiness towards sound recorded in a digital format, is because the digital data of sound is nothing more than a virtual copy of the existing original’ says suzuki
the ‘record’ was chosen not just because of the commonness in its time, but because of the simple structure and characteristics of the media. ‘sound’ is recorded on this media in an extremely direct and physical way which allows it to be played simply by amplifying the vibration between the record and the needle dropped upon it. in addition sound can be visually seen and read through the density of the grooves pressed on the record. it could still be said that the record is the most modern, and the finest media in the field of analogue recording technology.” – text via Design Boom
