Ujino and The Rotators – Haywood 18 Feb – 29 Apr FREE
Ujino Muneteru describes his Rotators as bands.
Each Rotator consists of three, usually heavily modified, electrical appliances all conducted by a Rotator Head (A DJ turntable customised to rhythmically operate three electric switches).
As the record turns the different electrical devices spurt on and off tunefully like a Mad Max music box.
Over the course of his residency Ujino is taking donations of pre-1985 domestic appliances which he’s using to add to his retro mechanical orchestra.
Check it out.
