In this interview filmed at Dezeen Space, London designer Paul Cocksedge explains the ideas behind Change the Record, a project where vinyl records are moulded into amplifiers for smartphones.
Called Change the Record, the products are made by heated and moulding the plastic disks into a funnel shape.
They amplify the sound from a phone placed inside through their shape alone.
Curtain Call is an installation of 5600 silicon rods, hanging in a circle to form the backdrop for films and performances.
It remains in place until 29 August. Watch the movie of it's construction»

Change the Record
During a live performance to music, designer Paul Cocksedge will be heating and moulding old LPs to give them new life as vinyl speakers that amplify music from smartphones. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own 12” record to see it transformed into a unique object. Speakers will be available to buy at the event.
This event forms part of Bloomberg Summer at the Roundhouse, during which internationally re-nowned artist, architect and designer Ron Arad will create a unique installation for the iconic London building – Curtain Call.
27th August, 4.00 – 7.00pm
The Roundhouse, Chalk Farm Road,
London NW1 8EH
