Description: The sounds of four arcade-style contraptions in Tim Hunkin's Novelty Automation show in Holborn. First, the Test Your Nerve machine, which features a model dog which drips saliva before lunging forward. Next, the Autofrisk machine with air-inflated gloves patting the sides of the user before two rubber bulbs punch forward at crotch height. Then there's the Pet Or Meat display, in which the fate of a lamb is decided, and finally the Small Hadron Collider pinball machine.
Technical guff: Headworn stereo. 2 x Shure WL-183 mics and Olympus LS-14 recorder.
Recorded by: IM Rawes
Additional notes: Many thanks to Tim Hunkin for his kind permission in allowing me to record at Novelty Automation. The arcade is at 1a Princeton Street, Holborn and its website is www.novelty-automation.com.
