Graham Dunning is an artist and experimental musician based in London, originally from Lancashire. Dunning’s process involves working closely with sound and found objects. Visually, his work relates to aesthetic parameters associated with dirt, dust and decay, while at the same time evoking notions of memory and the compartmentalisation of ideas. In terms of the sonic, Dunning’s work remixes cultural off-cuts, often utilising the unwarranted noise inherent in vinyl and cassette playback.
Equally common is his tendency to construct complex mechanical operations, which veer into precarious, unstable territories. The Mechanical Techno project is a kinetic celebration of electronic music, which uses stacks of revolving vinyl records to trigger synths and samples. The overall impression is that of a chaotic intimacy rarely found in software-based dance music.
