Dennis De Bel

Some concepts by Dennis De Bel about record players and grooves.

Sew-o-Phone, 2007
Singer sewing machine combined, in form and function, with working record player.

Streetmusician, 2008
The 'Streetmusician' literally plays the street. It makes everyday urban patterns and structures audible. 

Field recording
Commissioned by Showroom Mama for the Land Art for a New Generation exhibition.
Field Recording is the ploughing of an '12000 inch' vinyl record into soil and recording the sound of the creation (contact- and directional-mic's). The final piece consists of this video and the recorded sound cut into real vinyl (12").
The record is available for sale in a very limited edition.

Brick-up, 2008
A pick-up, or record-player, cast in concrete, to play your favorite musique concrete recordings.

Dennis De Bel graduated in June'07 as an Interactive Media designer at the Willem de Kooning Art Academy, in Rotterdam. In June'09 he completed the master-course Media Design at the Piet Zwart Institute, also in Rotterdam.
His work is inspired by everyday life. Associations made between everyday objects and media result in hybrid forms and 'new media'. Recognizable but subtle and clever.
