  Work Details  
  Occasionally Groovy was a 12-inch record customised to produce sounds from both digital and analogue sources. Made by sticking a matt black template with holes cut out of it to the underside of a clear vinyl record the altered disc was placed upon a raised record deck with a light source comprising of a series of fairy lights beneath it. A light sensor attached to the arm of the record produced a sound as light passing through the record hit the sensor. Sound was also created in the normal manner of needle in groove. These two differing sources were played simultaneously: the sound of the original disco music on the record playing alongside the quickening rhythmic interruption of light hitting the sensor on the arm of the player.
