Dyskograf is an installation that creates music from drawings. The machine is a graphic disc reader, and visitors to the exhibit fill in areas on a paper record with a felt-tip pen. This is then placed on the turntable and a camera fixed onto an arm above reads the marks as they rotate around, converting them into sound using a software program.

The installation allows the creation of musical sequences in an intuitive way, letting people rediscover physical contact with recorded music. Check out the video below to see the Dyskograf in action:
