Wax Record Making Workshop

— Arnolfini
Run by Copper Sounds as part of the EP/64 #64 The Grand Final Weekend
price: Headfirst Tickets


Come and design your own sleeve and cut your very own WAX record!
Participants will be given a demonstration of how to use a turntable as a drawing tool and then will work collaboratively to create a personalised record sleeve of their own using various mediums.
The second element to this workshop is based on similar principles. Participants will be creating their own 7” wax dub plates using turntables, speakers and frequencies to carve into wax discs.

At the end of this famous workshop you will walk away with your own wax dubplate in your own sleeve...

Workshop lasts for 90 mins approx.

Run by Copper Sounds
Copper Sounds explore the physical and visual nature of sound, through designing, making and playing unique sonic objects. Starting out as an experimental record manufacturer they made records out of everything from copper, volcanic rock, chalk, ceramic and everything in between. They would then mix these different materials together to sculpt a dark, fractious and industrial dance floor energy. More recent work has focused on minimalist-inspired compositions and exploring the different acoustic and resonant properties of particular shapes, forms and materials.

Presented with The Brunswick Club and Schwet. Supported with funding from West of England Visual Arts Alliance (WEVAA) and Arts Council England.
