SXSW is a windmill driven turntable that will
play vinyl records using a homemade
gramophone amplifier. Rotational
power will be derived from the Dutch-style
windmill mounted on the outside of a
former mill, using a pulley system to
ultimately drive the turntable.
Having no power storage technology, the
turntable will spin according to the whims
of the wind. SXSW will exhibited as part of Instrument, the second triennial exhibition at the Kulturmöllan in Lövestad, Sweden, curated by Marek Walczak.

These are three of the records that will be played ... they are from a stack of abandoned records I found underneath the elevated freeway near my home.
