Special Re:Quest Phenakistoscopes

I worked with LA plunderphonic beat maestro Daedelus to create a suite of phenakistoscopes for his song “Special Re:Quest”. The 14 resulting wooden discs with over 70 laser-engraved loops came together in the video for a bespoke analog animated hootenanny.

We wanted to pull back the curtain on the process by offering a free zine of the animated discs for those curious enough to try it at home. Please click here to download all 14 discs as a PDF.

I also shot a single take bootleg with the printed discs to prove that the video can be performed as an unbroken routine, check that out here!
