WATCH: Technics Presents: The Philharmonic Turntable Orchestra [Video]

About a month electronics company Technics invited a few of the worlds best DJ/Turntablists to be apart of the world’s first ensemble performance using only turntables and mixers in Tokyo/Japan. The Philharmonic Turntable Orchestra creates a whole new music experience, reconstructing classical music by playing vinyl records with a variety of musical techniques.

DJ D-Styles (World Famous Beat Junkies & Low End Theory) who was one of the many DJ’s involved in the performance had this to say about the collaboration. “I had the honor of being a part of the Philharmonic Turntable Orchestra. Musically this was definitely outside my comfort zone and a challenge I wanted to try. We rehearsed for 2 full days and recorded/filmed on the 3rd day. I hope this inspires more turntablists to get together & make more music. 30 turntablists: each of us had 1 Technics 1200 turntable & a Technics Mixer. All vinyl no serato. Thank you to Technics for making this happen!”
