Like “Berlin, Mitte der Welt” this is a spinoff of the G-Player series. As usual (some of) the sounds are a 1:1 interpretation of topographic data, this time imprinted on a vinyl disk that sits on top of an elaborate object that alludes to planetary motion. Above a chandelier-pendulum with a laser pointer “scratches” across the disk’s grooves which in turn is sonified and played back thru a rotating speaker, part of the above object.
