Model of a stereo sound recorder
How do two sound information get into a groove?
Why is there left and right sound information?
With this object you can actively experience the principle. The two cylinders each enclose a symbolic coil. This coil is moved by „audio pulses“, which are generated here by pressing with one’s own hand. Depending on whether there is an impulse on the left or right, the record groove modulates. The groove of a real record is read out again according to the same principle. As inspiration for the printing movements, an enlarged record groove is milled under the STEREO recorder.
