Sound Play

Japanese “sound artist” Yuri Suzuki plays with music, looking for ways to enhance our physical connection and relationship to it. He recently unveiled “The Sound of the Earth,” a globe-shaped record, embedded with contoured grooves for playing sounds and music recorded around the world. In another project, his Denki Puzzle, he created graphic shapes as puzzle pieces, to form the components and resistors that make up a radio. The project is intended to teach kids about how mechanical instruments come together, by physically building their own radio “puzzle”.
