The Panasonic Corporation has released a video of the world’s first full turntable orchestra in support of Japan’s Record Store Day. It’s not just a DJ with an orchestra, it’s the Philharmonic Turntable Orchestra, and it’s an orchestra made entirely of DJs.
The piece is performed on Technics turntables, recreating the first ever pressed LP, Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E Minor by Nathan Milstein. Utilising groove screeching turntablist techniques, the group create a truly unique piece of music. Full story.
