Watch the world's first turntable orchestra performance
Stop what you’re doing! Panasonic has released a video of the 'world's first full turntable orchestra' performance, featuring only Technics’ SL-1200 series turntables.
Thirty renowned DJs from around the world – including reigning (and, at 13 years old, youngest ever) Japanese world champion DJ Rena – came together in Tokyo to remix eight classical records, including excerpts from Vivaldi: Le quattro stagioni, Rossini: Péchés de vieillesse and Paganini: 24 Caprices for Solo Violin.
The theme of The Philharmonic Turntable Orchestra’s imaginative turntable homage was "Rediscover Music," and has been released today (20th March) to commemorate the day on which LPs were first born in Japan. All that was used to create the 3-and-a-half minute-video (which you can see below) were the classical records, mixers, and Technics’ SL-1200 series turntables - the first of which was launched in 1972.
