Submerged Turntable Plays Vinyl – Video

Submerged Turntable

We already showed you many art installations like the Wood Slices Record Player or some wonderful vinyl record art by Ted Riederer here on DJ rooms. Artist Evan Holm also uses vinyl in his projects a lot. He built this stunning art installation combining nature elements like water and wood covered with moss. The spinning turntable creates a huge whirl in the black inked water basin. Unfortunately the non consistent speed of the turntable leads to a loss of sound quality. But as this is art, we really love the idea of playing a record under water. If you do not believe that this installation actually works, have a look at the second video with the making of below.
