Electronic Music Improvisation: James Kelly and Adam Weikert

james kelly and adam weikert live turntablism performance

I recently completed my masters in Music, Technology and Innovation at De Montfort University. My research explored the use of foot pedal controllers in turntable performance.

Here is the organ pedal I used and a video of my performance with laptop musician Adam Weikert.

I used the organ (foot) pedal as a controller to control the rotation speed of the turntable, which allows me extra control of the pitch of samples without having to take my hand off the record.


I also got a one off record cut to vinyl, specifically for use in the performance. The music is an example of the evolving sound world that me and adam have been developing.
