Arnaud Rivi?re (Paris) - electrophone, turntable dissection or turntable massacre
Trafic in the DIY area : metal pieces, wires and stuff stuck into the mixing board. Put the out in. This is not at all made for this, but why not.
A pick up, rather plastic one, explosion required, but re-enforced to resist.
It has to take it.

Not necessarly using records, sometimes even metal one or other.
Also captors, they go where they fall, or not, not always. With and via springs though.
Well, otherwise, feedbackophile, unshamedly, with both hands, Arnaud Rivi?re, is making his own with curves and accidents.

" He is an unabashed feedbackophile who creates monstrous gusts of noise with simple tools used incorrectly. Jamming foreign objects and wires into his mixing board, using his turntable to spin metal disks or worse, twisting his distortion pedal to 11, the harsh beauty of Riviere's music does not come from conventional concepts like melody and harmony, but from deftly controlled bursts of energy, powerful gestures of thunderous layers of noise upon noise, and a wonderful sense of structure." Keir Neuringer pour Tag-Den Haag (
