The Sound of the Earth by Yuri Suzuki

The Sound of the Earth is a content of Yuri Suzuki`s spherical record project, the grooves representing the outlines of the geographic land mass.
Each country on the disc is engraved with a different sound, as the needle passes over it plays field recordings collected by Yuri Suzuki from around the world over the course of four years; traditional folk music, national anthems, popular music and spoken word broadcasts.

An aural journey around the world in 30 minutes.

Yuri Suzuki: London underground circuit map radio

Responding to ‘thrift’ as a theme, Suzuki’s work explores communication systems in consumer electronics. A printed circuit board (PCB) is used as a precedent for developing a electrical circuit influenced by harry beck’s iconic London underground map diagrams. By strategically positioning certain speaker, resistor and battery components throughout the map, users can visually understand the complex networks associated with electricity and how power is generated within a radio.
