Yuri Suzuki and Oscar Diaz's project brings together a number of processes in one hybrid synesthetic activity.
In a project that combines sound, sight and physical movement, Rec & Play by Yuri Suzuki and Oscar Diaz brings together a number of processes in one hybrid synesthetic activity.
The ‘rec’ pen, draws and records sound on a line. it contains a special ferromagnetic ink, made with the same component used to make old cassette tapes, a recording head and a microphone. The ink is applied to the paper and at the same time the recording head can record the sound captured by the microphone situated on the top part of the pen.
The ‘play’ pen retrieves the sound and plays it back.Â it contains a red head and a speaker. When the red tape head is moved along the line the previously recorded sound can be heard.
