Pedro Lopes [PT/GE]
[turntables, self-pressed records, modified needles, percussive objects]
Pedro Lopes is a resident musician in Berlin, with a vast curriculum of collaborations with people such as Reinhold Friedl, Dj Sniff, Carlos Zíngaro, Gabriel Ferrandini, Pedro Sousa, and many others; furthermore, its a path enriched by radio art works displayed at Transmediale, Serralves Foundation, or Goethe Institut. Pedro makes of his instrument, the turntable, a vessel for a experimentation discourse, of analogue tone, often recurring to amplifiers, DIY pressed records, modified needles and percussive objects. Pedro Lopes is one the most interesting and innovative representatives of the exploratory music of Portugal. [text by Rescaldo Festival]
Pedro's words on his piece:
This piece is not about turntables, but it is about sounds. However, because designing & producing any sound is a reflex of the instrument itself, one ends up dissecting the turntables as musical objects. This piece is about subversion if you consider that the turntable is typically seen as a musical reproduction instrument rather than a musical production instrument. As the turntable matures, new voices are pressed on it, beyond scratching and conventional turntablism, these resonate sounds through feedback, self-built needles, percussive objects and self-pressed acetate records.
