Video: a phonograph playing
by Josh Kimball
An old phonograph SOOTHINGLY spinning. This is what YouTube was made for, people.
(Seriously, the visual aspects of retro music technology are not to be dismissed! Our current distance from the mechanisms of music making are not all bad, but it’s important to remind oneself – especially if you spend hours with the earbuds in, sitting in front of a computer – that much more tangible physical acts used to be NECESSARY to experience music.)
