The preferred listening+ method is to witness the engineered result of Plastic Infinite as follows. You will have to play the 7″ EP on your turntable and view with either a strobe @25 flashes per second or a video camera @25fps, very high shutter speed, progressive.
Sculpture the Opto-musical agglomerate is Dan Hayhurst: (media devices, electronic instruments) and Reuben Sutherland: (video zoetrope turntable, animation, optix).
Their technique uses zoetrope.
A zoetrope is a drum shaped optical toy that makes a series of drawings appear to move. The drum sits on a stand upon which it can be spun. Its sides are pierced with a regular pattern of slits. The drawings, the number of which corresponds to the number of slits, are printed onto a strip of paper which is placed inside the drum. These drawings differ only slightly from one another and follow a logical sequence.
The drum is spun and the viewer watches the images through the slits where they appear to move. The zoetrope is an optical toy that can be enjoyed by several people at the same time.
It was invented by W. G. Horner in 1834, and later developed by Milton Bradley who patented it in the USA in 1867.
